Default Help Me Find This Tool

I was getting some SMD soldering done at a small shop the other day and the guy showed me a tool I should have. It looked like a small set of plastic pliers with a bunch of slots in it. It's purpose was to put the proper bend on resistors and other components prior to insertion in a PCB. Can anyone give me the correct name for this tool or perhaps a Digikey or Mouser part no.?

Regards,
Dan

Not to be ungrateful...........but the one I saw was like a set of pliers that served as a bender and straightened pins on ICs. Any guesses?
Here's a good link that discusses all these hard to find tools.

Dan

Are there any markings or trademarks - part numbers - anything marked on this tool? Did you friend find it or buy it - from where? Does he have any idea as to who made it?

Can you post a photo of it?

Nope. This two was like the two Jameco tools combined.
