Tools for Building and Repairing Stringed Instruments May Be Useful for Model Ship Building

I received a catalogue from Stewart-MacDonald, a company that is a source of tools, parts, and pretty much anything one could want for building and repairing guitars, mandolins, banjos, etc. I got the catalogue because I purchased some parts to restore my first guitar.
So what has that got to do with ship modelling?

The catalogue has about 25 pages of tools, specifically chosen and developed to accomplish tasks with wood involving cutting, filing, shaping and reaching difficult to reach places. It seems to me ship model building involves those types of activities. So there may be tools available from Stewart-MacDonald that just might be the very thing a ship modeller would like to have.

The company has a web site where you can look at everything they supply on line.
Go have a look and check it out.
