STRAIN RELIEF INSTALLATION/REMOVAL TOOL
Removing and installing a strain relief can be a frustrating job.   Standard pliers just do not get the job done and can damage the strain relief.   These special strain relief pliers are just what you need.  They fit perfectly on the AC power cord strain relief and give you the leverage you need to compress the strain relief for easy removal and installation, without damage.

1 INCH CHIP BRUSH
Chip brushes are very similar to a paint brush. The difference is, paint brushes may use bristles that will melt when in contact with certain solvents and are expensive (for the good ones anyway).  This is where chip brushes shine.   Chip brushes are made with natural China bristles that will hold up to flux, epoxy, glue, resin, stain, paint remover, solvents, cleaners, oils and more.  

They also make a great dry duster to use in cleaning dust, spider webs, etc from the insides of amplifiers.

Chip brushes have a wood handle so they are firm and comfortable to use.    The best part, they cost much less than paint brushes so you can use them to apply sticky, nasty and harsh adhesives or even use them in a parts cleaner with solvent and when you are done with them, toss it out.    Bristles are 1 inch wide, total length of brush is 7 1/4 inches.
