Hi-

I just got my latest Xuron goody: #450 Tweezer-Node Pliers. They're high-precision needle nose with a very flat and square 1/16" tip (1.6mm). Absolutely fantastic for bending and forming small bits of wire. They would probably also work well on very tiny photo-etch parts, though I haven't tried them for this yet. They're obtainable from MicroMark.

Neil,
I was just taking my time to thoroughly look into the micromark catalog. Allmost READ every single word in there. When it comes to Toys for Boys... they got it all, don't they ?

Never draw fire, it irritates everyone around you.

I know what you mean; and the nice thing is they send catalogs so frequently that eventually you can have one for every room in the house! The comment I sent them that they printed in a few catalogs read something like: "My dream is to call you up and say: 'Send me one of everything!'"
