Miland's tools are
fantastic. They simplify silverwork enormously and you can do surprisingly beautiful
things with them. I have every tool he makes and I wouldn't give them up to
anyone!! I highly recommend any silversmith to try
them. Raine Strom, "Raine Shadows", St.
Best tools for the purpose anywhere.
Nagle Forge & Foundry, Novato, CA
These tools work extremely well. The long
suite is that they are labor saving, secondly, they are very inexpensive for the end
result. Dr. Eric Lundgren, "Gold and Stuff"
I bought the whole set of dimplers and they are
wonderful! These tools have worked hard for 6 years and still like
NEW! Terry Macy, Tucson, AZ
Your tools are so great for a wire wrapper.
They make the job fun and also time saving. We love your new tools and look
forward to this booth every year. Cheryl Giese,
These tools are the answer to the jewelers
prayers. They allow me do creative things I didn't think possible. Once I
pounded a bracelet for two days - afterwords I found Miland's tools. He had one
that I used to make the same bracelet in only one hour. I then bought one of each of
his tools JUST IN CASE I needed it! Ruth Lovell, Tampa, FL
Tools I bought from Miland are dependable -
saved lots & lots of time and increased production. John Welch
I do simple coloring of niobium and titanium.
In doing flat work, the biggest problem I had was putting a hole in the piece to color and
then hang in an earring. For two years I looked for drill bits that would drill a
neat hole in the metal. I never had much success, the bit would wander, get the
metal hot even underwater, or break. In Tucson, in the big tent was Miland Suess
selling hand tools he had made. We tried one of the pliers punches he had made on
niobium. What a great find! It put nice neat holes in the niobium without a
problem. The round 1 mm punch pliers continue to be my favorite tool. In three
years I have found a lot of different uses for the punch.

These tools are great for wire workers and
beaders. Double flush cut is perfect for chain making. Makes cutting wire fast
and accurate. Metal forming using the channel metal wrap is perfect.
Preston Reuther, Master Wire Sculptor (see
These tools are my absolute favorites. I
buy more and newer designs every year. Fabulous. Lois
Venarachick, Jeweler and Artist
Your tools make it easier to make items I
formerly spent many hours making. Poorly! Fred Vance
America's greatest tool innovator! - High
quality tools and a joy to work with. Doug Magnus, Sante Fe,
I have been buying these tools for years and
love them. I have created designs specifically around many of the unusual shapes and
functions. It has helped make my product unique from everyone else's and that means
$$$ to me. I especially appreciate the quality of the mechanisms. They are
better even than (major manufacturer) because their joints don't shift over time.
The smaller handles are great for a woman's hand, too, and my hands don't get sore during
a long day of production. I come back every year to see what else he has. I
can't wait. Patty Jo Kiraly - "Patti Jo Designs",
Laguna Beach, CA
Been using these tools for years and years and
never failed me for what I used them for. Vic Martine,
owner of "Silver, Sword and Stone"
These tools are great. I use them for so
many different uses, sometimes for what they are made for but more often I find different
applications. Bill Lonbad, Saratoga, NY
Your tools are so fabulous and save me so much
time and energy. I plan to have them all someday. Gary
Thausen, Tucson, AZ
I have purchased 3 sizes of dimplers and
LOVE Them. There is no tool that makes this impressive texture. I use it to
make fish scales in thin copper for large textured aquatic sculptures. This set of
tools has actually made my career happen! Bergit Ranney,
Highly recommended. Great tools.
Great people to buy from. Tony Andridge
These tools are the greatest. I bought
several pair last year and have used and used and used them. The amount of
time they have saved me is beyond calculation! I had to come back to add to my
collection. Thanks, Mr. Miland! Louise Ellis,
"Astra Design", Richmond, VA
Saved my butt! Jeff
Lomax, Southern Pines
I have been buying tools from Miland for 5 or 6
years now. I have 2 hole punches, a double flush cut plus synclastic and
anti-clastic hand tools. I keep adding to my collection because his tools are high
quality, easy to use and time savers. Best of all, he always shares tips and tricks
at the trade show. Thanks! Elizabeth Sorroche
These are the most unique tools I have ever
seen and used. They are fantastic. Susan, San
Miland gave me extra special treatment and
modified one of his tools on the spot to match my specific needs! I am thrilled!
Excellent tools. Christine Breese, Arcata, CA
Have your tools and enjoy the precision and the
one-of-a-kind usage. S. Stopler, "Unique
Treasures", York, PA
Kevin Plunkett, Vermont
I hand fabricate sterling silver parts from
heavy gauge sheet and wire. The separate parts must fit together EXACTLY to be
properly fused together. This is an ancient technique called "marriage of
metals" and Miland's hand tools are priceless for this precision craftsmanship.
They allow me to bend heavy gauge metal with virtually no scarring on the surface, to fit
exact size and shape requirements and with little or no strain on the hands. I am 50
and have been a professional jeweler for 29 years. Before that I got a B.A. in Art
from Penn State University and no where have I found such tools as his, so perfectly
suited for specialized jobs. When I first ran across his display in Tucson I said
out loud: "Where have you been my whole life!" and meant it. I produce a
unusual line of my own original designs and sell at 22 shows a year. The few tools
of Miland's I own have made my work much easier and I plan to get more. Thanks
again! Lynn Hope McNees (see

Have your tools and love
Hi! I met you last year at the Tucson
show. We were venders there for the first time. I don't know if you will
remember me as you see so many people but I kept coming back to your booth. I used
to work for the Boston Mounted Police. We have your video and I have passed it
around to like minded friends. Having worked horses my whole life I have tendinitis
in my working hand...Your tools have given me much relief and my work is much more
professional in looks and I am free to work longer pain free...Thank you and I hope to
meet you again when we come back out to the Tucson show...hopefully next
Great Tools! Great prices! Do
it! Majore Vern, Taos, NM

are GREAT! I highly recommend them to anyone who uses hand tools.
Sid Sharples, Holly Hill, FL
I bought at least 6 tools last year and love
them! They have saved a lot of time in my jewelry making. They are well made
and easy to use. Miland explains them well. Buy them!
Francesca Anatra, "Frozen Fire Glass", Peoria, AZ
I have been a customer for several years and I
continue to return for more tools. Miland is so creative, industrious and
innovative. Thanks! Ginger Davis
These tools fill all the odd needs I am always
trying to work out. Ardith Johnson, Silversmith
These tools have helped me come up with so many
unique designs and Miland has designed tools for my particular needs at prices I can
afford. Barbara Barnett, Laguna Beach, CA
Miland made me a custom tool which clamps
special, tiny pieces of metal. Great! Ken Folsom, Tucson, AZ
