Hobby Tools

We like these small pliers and cutters - they're a higher quality than most of the Chinese import tools we're offered. They are drop-forged, high-carbon steel with double-leaf springs, lap joints and rubberized foam handles. There is a trim 6" needle nose, and a 4-1/2" mini-round diagonal cutter. For precision work and hobbies, and especially nice for anyone with small hands.

Attach Anything!

You need this. Anybody who's ever made a third trip to the hardware store on the same day needs this. The (100) -- count 'em, (100) -- chrome vanadium driver and bit attachments include slotted, Phillips, square (Robertson) head, torx, hex and 12-point bits, plus security Phillips, torx and hex, and (4) different driver adapters (one of which, a super-cute cup-hook driver, has us oddly excited). They're all in a flip-top plastic case. How come it's surplus? If you turn it upside down and shake it, some of the bits fall out of their little size-marked slots. So don't do that. Or stick a thin sheet of foam inside it and all will be well.

This Whetstone Is Dry

It’s a whetstone for sharpening knives and no, it doesn’t need to be wet to use. (“Whet” means to hone.) This one is small, pocket knife-size. Some folks use a little mineral oil, but that isn’t necessary either. This stone is 220-grit, and measures 3-7/8" x 1" x 1/2". Lay it on a wet paper or cloth towel, so it doesn’t slip, then pull your blade across it a dozen times on each side with the edge tipped to a about 22-1/2-degree angle or less, which you approximate by standing it up at 90 degrees, then tipping it halfway to 45, then halfway again.

HEMOSTATIC HEAVEN

Hemostats are the clamplike devices dangling from veins and arteries in melodramatic operating scenes. Our particular collection are Pakistani surgical-grade instruments made of magnetic stainless steel. As such we rate them pretty good, but not fantastic. Hemostats look like little pliers. The jaws are relatively fine, with rounded tips. The inside faces are lightly serrated to get a grip on tubing or body plumbing. And the handles are much longer than the jaws. Now the heavenly part. Great hobby clamps that can be worked into small areas. Fine heat sinks for electronics. Good hook extractors for trout fisherpeople. Excellent tubing clamps for flow-sensitive chemistry experiments. Sizes are approximate length.
