Our modular leather hole-punch set has a 3-1/2" long carbon-steel knurled handle and screw-on hollow punches at 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, and 5mm. These, according to our Associate VP for Leather Punching, are much easier to position in line with other holes than those pliers-type punches. Now let out those belts-or make your own wing-tips.
Our thinner picker-upper, but with a powerful 5-lb-pull, 9/16" dia magnet on the business end (for spilled nails, the screw that rolled under the stove, or the heavy wrench you dropped into the sump). The 5/16" dia x 5-1/4" long 4-draw barrel extends to a full two feet. Has a convenient pocket clip.
Not an old codger? Get an early start. This was made for sitting on the porch, carving family heirlooms after supper. The pressboard case holds a 6-piece wood carving set with (3) small straight gouges, (1) straight chisel, (1) V-gouge and (1) skew chisel. All are approx 5" long, with wooden handles. Be even better if you used them while an old dog was asleep at your feet, but we don't sell old dogs.
This 16-piece set of watchmaker's tools is just as handy for jewelry-makers, crafters, or anyone else working with small parts. The professional watch-repair kit Includes (2) tiny Phillips-head screwdrivers, (3) diminutive flat-heads, a case knife, non-magnetic tweezers, case wrench, metal/plastic watch hammer, link-pin remover, double-head pin pusher, (3) pin-punches, small needle-nose pliers, and a watchband holding block. Just changing bands and batteries? Get these tools to make it a lot easier, and order a brand-new pack of 30 popular-size button batteries-(6) AG1, (6) AG3, (6) AG4, (3) AG5, (3) AG12, and (6) AG13.
AKA automatic stripper. Sorry folks, but this one strips insulation to reveal wire, not flesh. Which may still give you a charge, depending upon your hookup!! 6-1/2" Long with pliers type grip and automatic self-adjustment to strip wires from 0.2 to 6mm without damaging the wire says the manufacturer. We recommend use on 18 GA stranded, 22 GA solid wire or heavier as it will cut the wire of lighter weights. A second jaw is a cable cutter. Brand new, made in China. And very handy too, if you are doing anything with wiring.
This Stansport product is called the Finger-Tip Saw (although all you really need to cut off fingertips is a good garden pruner). This is actually a survival/hunter's wire saw, a 20" long, thin and sharp serrated wire with a 1-1/8" slip-ring at each end (for your fingertips). Coil it up and you can store it in a shirt pocket. Cuts "wood, plastic, bone, etc." and includes instructions for making a one-handed saw with a short tree branch.
No gas or electricity needed for this pocket-sized manual chain saw, the camper's pal. It's 30" long overall, with (82) spring-steel teeth on the 18-1/2" middle section, and canvas loop handles on each end. Imagine a cross between a sharpened bike chain and a garotte. It's easy to use (we tested it), works a whole lot faster than a hatchet, rolls up into no space at all, and stores in the heavy-duty canvas belt pouch that comes with it.
Well, here you go. This very high-quality punch set is made for leather, faux-leather, hardboard, soft wood, paperboard, plastics and soft metals. Includes (9) sharp-edged punches (3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 25/32", 1", 1-1/4") that screw onto the heavy-duty driver. A spring-loaded guide holds the punch 3/16" above the material, ready for you to give it a whack with a hammer or the heel of your hand for a good, clean cut. Comes in a black-plastic carrying case.
Call it the best paint (and label and putty) scraper ever made. Great big nonslip padded grip, a blade holder with a thumbscrew (reverse the blade when not in use), and a 4-draw, push-button extension that takes it from 6-1/2" to 9-1/2" long. Comes with one blade installed and two extra in the handle. The scraper to have when you're scraping more than one window. From IIT®.
