Thanks so much for visiting our online store and for wanting to learn more about us! TacketZ was founded to make life a little easier for model makers and crafters alike! Our founder, Ed Tackett, has a loving passion for model making, but like many others, sometimes those tiny pieces can be quite a pain. This is where ideas are born, there was nothing available that was really suitable for a long term solution, so Ed designed and created these little beauties and then decided to share them with the world. Aside from Ed being a veteran of the United States Military, he has an extensive background in additive manufacturing, his background paired with his tenacity gave him the perfect set of skills to be able to create TacketZ to be a perfect solution for any and all model makers, crafters and hobbyists. We are proud to be a veteran owned and operated business with all our manufacturing done here in the United States of America.
