Nifty gadget

What is a niftier gadget than a ratcheting pipe cutter? Maybe an iPhone, but not much else.

I can't believe this is pen, it's so delicate! Lovely drawing!

Great job! This reminds me of the Craftsman "Robogrip" tools I used to assemble when I worked at a factory years ago.

Kate said...

YOu all crack me up!! Joan, you are hilarious! I envision your stocking filled with power tools from Santa this Christmas. : )

Tracy said...

now i think i would say a cropadile or a paper trimmer but to each her own tools :-) great drawing too!

Martha said...

I'm reading this on my iPhone! But yes, yours is a nifty tool indeed, and very nicely rendered.

Serena said...

I gotta get me one o' those. :) Another great sketch ~

What pen did you use for this?
I love it. Love it.

Felicity! ... thanks! I had fun with this pen. It's not one I normally use.

Steve ... I wish I had invented this doohickey! It's really cool. Dang, I dunno if I could ever work in a factory. Did you at least get freebies?

Kate ... hehe. I have a thing for tools. I will take you on one of my jaunts to Home Depot! We'll have a blast!

Tracy ... uhh, what's a cropadile? Paper trimmers are cool but this one makes ratchety noises too!

Martha ... I am envious. I don't have an iPhone. This is my one big hint for Christmas. But of course, an iPod Touch would be even finer!

Serena ... I see you have a thing for tools too, huh?

France ... I really don't know what the pen is. It's a ballpoint pen I found lying around my desk. I think it's a Bic medium point. I had such a craving to draw that I didn't even bother looking for my "real" pens. I picked up whatever was around and got cracking. I would have even used some lipstick ... if I had any. haha.

....and who else could make this so interesting? Beautiful pen work.

Thanks Juj ... It was my overt hint to cosmic Santa Claus' for an iPhone. LOL. I have no shame. hahahaha.

Hey Andrea ... There are some tools that are just cool. This is one of them.

Tracy! Thanks for the link! Yes, I would consider a cropadile very cool! I learn something new everyday from you!

LOL Thanks Casey! I tend to be mechanically minded so this kind of stuff really appeals to me. Thanks for the encouragement!
