Suggestions to help optimize your working space

An organized shop is a more efficient one. How much time do you waste daily looking for tools? If you don’t think you do, log your actions for a day. Are you surprised? You can completely control misplaced tools by assigning each a designated space. Now label the location so you can easily spot when anything is out of place.

  • Keep accessories and consumable goods stored within easy reach of their coordinating equipment.
  • Use compartmentalized boxes to organize quick-turn repair needs: earring backs, lobster clasps, spring rings, jump rings, imitation birthstones, fabricated metals, etc.
  • Bench top organizers can help maintain an orderly bench all within easy reach.
  • Store extra buffs and rouges in drawers at your polishing station.
  • Keep your burs organized and labeled in one of our handy bur holders.

The bench is your foundation. While no jeweler’s bench is exactly like another, these suggestions ensure you’ve fully optimized your workspace in a way that works best for you.
