Its almost a $1 curiosity item Bob. The tool for releasing the barbs that hold spade terminals in plastic block plugs..... No big deal but Graham got some here a few years back, as he said, he'll just have to go back to grinding down hack saw blades.....

Here til the 4/9 , heading down the west coast.

Two weeks in we've had a years worth of fun already :cheers:

Down there everyone meets the friends they haven't seen in quite a while at HF. Up here Princess Auto carries a lot of the same product lines and the result is the same. The tools are cheap but usually do as intended with only a little fooling around and for someone who isn't using the item every day they are more than satisfactory.

All in all it's a fine meeting place for the toolaholic!  :-D :-D :-D
