Yes its me again the one with a million questions. 
Like the subject says what are some good beginner tools? I have a graphite paddle a few tweezers and basically that is it. Im going to order some more supplies over the weekend and was wondering what would be a nice setup for a beginner to have in their shop?

Thanks again
Dennis

The basics I would go for are a tungsten rake and a pair of glass shears

The tool I use the most besides the paddle is a paring knife out of my kitchen drawer lol.  Look around and see what you have, you would be amazed at the things you can use for this.  Just make sure it won't melt lol.  I also picked up an inexpensive (dirt cheap) set of dental pics at harbour freight and I also use those quite a bit.   The paring knife is perfect for creasing, moving glass around ( I use mind to push my encasing glass to the ends) evening up ends, all kinds of stuff.
