Having spent an hour or so ringing around the jewellery tool suppliers, Andrew discovered that he could not buy a scoring tool. He knew that he could make one but he was being lazy. Now having been forced to make a scoring tool, Andrew scoured the Web and then realised that he actually had a book detailing how to make one out of an old file.

Being a natural horder (just ask his wife, Ceri), Andrew had several old files that he promptly started to hammer, heat, file and grind the tang and soon he had made his very own couple of scoring tools. Why? I hear you ask. He needed to be able to score silver to make up a pair of ear rings for a project. See the Keum Boo Scored Silver Ear Rings going live in the same week as this film.
