From simple chisels on sheet metal to using a miniature flathead screwdriver(something you would prolly use on eye glasses) on a .50 cal casing. Crude, yes I know, but working a design into metal seems to keep calling me back for more. And i was hoping maybe someone in the forum could link me to a better tool.

Thank You in Advance
