List Of Hobo Nickel Tools

This List Of Hobo Nickel Tools will show you what tools are needed to start carving hobo nickels of your very own.

Remember the original tools were made with mallet and nail, or rock, or whatever the hobo could find, so use your imagination, especially if you are on a budget.  Here's the list of hobo nickel tools:

  • Hammer or mallet - this is to hit your pick or nail to make dents or divets
  • Pick or Nail - to hit with the hammer
  • Sandpaper - to soften rough edges
  • Paper and Pen - To draw your design
  • Dremel tool - probably the most important tool of the modern hobo nickel artist.  The dremel tool allows quick and precise detail with using an interchangeable bit.
  • Dremel bits - Bits needed include arrow tip, diamond edge, blunt, sander, saw, serrated blade, and others.  You can't go wrong with buying a dremel variety pack that'll run you about $20-30.
  • Magnifying glass - Preferably a helmet, you can use these lens to see the nickel up close since its so small and detail is so important.

Here is some current inventory of dremel tools:
