HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT

Fire away! No reason to cringe with this control tip syringe (our terrible rhymes, on the other hand…). Seriously, though, it’s easy to give something your best shot with this comfy (2) finger-hole-and-thumbhole grip. Syringe is 6-1/2" long x 5/8" dia., transparent plastic and has a male Luer Lock fitting suitable for anything that has a threaded female Luer Lock fitting to screw into it or use it without. The thumb-powered plunger is white with standard black rubber seal. Great for glues, oils and the likes. Who knew injection could be so sexy? Capacity is 6ml, or 6cc, graduated in 0.2ml increments. Also great to work it into a costume, or Halloween decor.

The Penny Cutters

These are the so-called miracle shears. They were designed for use by paramedics and others needing quickly to cut wire, light sheet metal, or other tough stuff that might stand between them and their quarry. They are normally demonstrated cutting a penny in two. Which they will do. But not as a steady diet. Let's dispel a few myths. While these are Pakistani stainless, we're not talking any miracles in manufacturing. They are good for their purpose, and real handy to have in the old tool box. But their purpose isn't making pennies into 5-mil pieces, and you will twist or break them at about the same time you find out that you've done the same thing to U.S. laws! For sheet metal or wire or fishing leaders or tin cans or whatever, be our guests.

Cut Right To It

This all-purpose scissors is the favorite of everyone at A.S.&S.: Pat uses his to cut and strip wire. C.J. uses his to slit the tape on packages. Mary Ann uses hers to open bags of pretzels. It's 6-1/4" long overall, with a very sharp 2" stainless steel blade and large, comfortable handles. It would sell for $9.95 retail if it was new, but it was used for one day to cut cloth in the assembly plant of a major car company, then discarded. Quality control is a wonderful thing.
