tools, I recommend Sears as your first shopping venture. Sears tools are good stand-bys that will last for years. Parts are easy to obtain and the cost is moderate. The Sears "Craftsman" tool series can take you from drills to table saws with full instruction booklets and a wide range of attachments. Sears publishes the finest "magic catalogue" of its kind so you can get Sears tools and parts no matter what mountain you live on.
To begin building: Understand blueprints, familiarize yourself with your local lumber yard, begin with miniature Dremel tools, graduate to Sears1 hand and power tools and from there on you will develop into De Walt, Rockwell and Black & Decker products.
Woodworking could be your second interest and it, obviously, will benefit your magic efforts. But you must crawl before you walk. All the money in the world will buy you the finest tools available, but if you don't know how to use them, they are of little value. It!s iust like magic equipment, don't be afraid to admit you are a beginner. There is, unfortunately, a stigma to being a 'beginner" in any endeavor and you will run across salesmen, craftsmen and (mosUy) lumber yard employees who look at you as if you were the "Elephant Man" when you ask an elementary question. Just remember, "They don't know from thumb tips. " And don't be discouraged. You can build your own magic !
