The best tool I've bought
« on: February 15, 2011, 09:55:49 AM »
Got a pair of these inverse action tweezers the other week, thought they'd come in handy. Never realised just how useful they are. They're perfect for holding components for soldering. Straight ones are good when you start, then when the board gets full, the angled ones can get to pretty much anywhere.
I totally recommend if you haven't got a set, go get some NOW.

Yeah, I could use something like this. It would come in handy for certain sockets.

I just bought these.  Pretty fair price considering the free shipping.
Only thing is, there's no picture of the item.  But they seem like they would be the right tool for the job...

I got mine at Princess Auto up here in Canada but you should be able to find them at a variety of shops. They are a Lifesaver, ESPECIALLY for sockets.
