Question Fly Tying Tools ??

I am curious to ask how many of you may make some of your fly tying tools, or just simply go to the nearest shop & buy some ? I know some of the tools maybe too difficult, but was still curious.

I just recently started tying tube flies & did end up making several tying mandrels from coat hangers of different diameter wire. Also made a simple dubbing twister tool from plastic coated wire. (by the way this one is so simple to make, only a couple of bends & your done.) It's also easy to make thread racks, dubbing teasers (from velcro wrapped around a dowel rod)

How about you tying arsenal, any homemade stuff ?
