I've been a fan of the The Small Shop products since I got my first Hold and Fold long ago.  They are a family run business that make very high quality products.  They also carry a variety of other scale modeling tools by other manufacturers.

All their products are made in the USA.

You can purchase this and other quality scale modeling tools directly from The Small Shop or from the many retailers that carry their products.  

Please check their Authorized Dealer's page for more ordering choices.
