    SHIN TOOLS! Where'd you get them and how much?

    Hey guys. I'm in the market for some shin tools. TK409's website has some decent looking ones from "Darth Flan". Sixty dollars sounds like a nice deal, but I want to hear from you guys about your shin tools and who you got them from. Pictures are always appreciated.

    I made my own.
    i used Actual parts for most of it.
    These were before Mojo discovered the actual found part for the Anti-Security blade.
    Mine were made from X-acto Knife handles, Paterson squeegee & chemical stirrer.
    The fourth Shin tool is purchased but I can't recall from whom.
    this pic is of a set i built for a member here.

    no secrets to share via PM.
    the parts are found on ebay cheaply & also at camera sites if you don't wanna hunt. Hoever, ebay will get you the same items at a fraction of the price.

    The "blade" on my tools was laser-cut from a piece of thick black acrylic by a friend of mine. Sadly,we are no longer close and I am unable to have any more of these made.
    I miss his friendship.
