The suite of five prints was made with Crommelynk during 1983 and 1984, and marked a return to a theme Dine had used during the 1960s and 70s. Power tools were used to create most of the imagery, and the plates were also etched and worked with spit-bite aquatint. The blue acrylic used on the paper for this print created a "skin" on the paper to create a new effect. The titles relates not to the tools, but to places or streets near Crommelynk's atelier.
