Another great idea from Efco ….

Efco wire protectors Efco wire protectors

These plastic protectors slide over the ends of pliers to give a bit more grip and prevent damage to jewellery wire or other delicate items. Use a heat-gun or hair-dryer to shrink the protector onto the pliers.

The protectors are supplied as a set of four 10cm lengths in three different diameters: 3.2mm, 4.8mm, 6.4mm (x2)


Floods in Germany

Hochwasser in Bayern

You may have seen in the news reports on the flooding in Germany over the weekend.

Although the the Pfalz region didn’t seem too badly hit – other than a very full and turbulent river Rhine and a lot of waterlogged fields, the rain has caused problems at Efco’s local exchange and they are without internet and phones. Communication is limited to a  single fax line and various mobiles!

The latest information we have from Efco is that the phonelines are still out of action, but should be working again tomorrow (5th June)
