Here is a pic of my favorite bender pliers,
complete with box joint that never gets
wobbly and keep the jaws centered.

You vary the radius by where you grip
the wire to be bent. I like it for resistors
or other parts with leads that bends critical.

The "Three tools on Napkin" are great vintage tools.
The adjustable wrench top, the Merit fence tool
wrench to the right. And then the middle tool,
I'm not sure what this tool actually is?
It looks to hole punch centered for various sheet metal
thicknesses. Or maybe a nail removal tool from horse shoes.

Finally, I've tried to document the first instance of CyberSex,
before the term was even defined.


Cheers,

Sorry had to run. I have a wrench like the one at the top of picture two, it's still working:-)
The small pliers, are they any particular brand?

For parts forming for through hole this has been the go to for 40+ years: Resistor Lead Bending Tool - TOL-13114 - SparkFun Electronics

The tools look like Xcelite or Diamond tool. Both excellent.

WOW thanks! That's genius and simple!
May I please ask what other tools you usually have at your bench?

1Audio,


I've seen those just wondering if they are radiused where you bend the

lead? I've gotten accustomed to mine and have never had issues with it.
Though I should have one of those red plastic bending tools on the bench,
as it would save time once you have your lead spacing for through hole.


Cheers,

They are radiused and in .1" increments. I have 2 sizes of the red ones and a green one that is only 1/4W parts but a larger range.

On my bench is an array of tools, below. Its overkill but will handle many things.

The pliers/cutter are from ETM. They were surplused out of Lockheed in the late 1980s. no longer made, the company now makes dental tools and they are $$$. The tray has a lot of different tweezers. The white think is a Clauss No-Nik, possibly the best wirewrap wire stripper ever. The electric screwdriver is essential i think and Broppe are the best I have found. They can be had from eBay for a very reasonable price. Metcal soldering iron and desoldering tool. The gold cylinder is a precista solder sucker. before the Metcal it was the best tool for removing solder. It was the only one adequate to multilayer PCB's or ground planes. Again, not made for years. There are more specialized tools, some used only once, but this is typical if you do this stuff a lot.

Ask away if you have any questions.

LOL that's a fairly large collection, but as you say, when you do it for a long time, do one get more tools, also "one time usage". Thank you for making so much work, just to reply to my question!! :-)


The white tool you write about to wire stripping, is that the one in the left most lower corner?

Do you repair cobber traces, what do you use for that?

The white tool is the No-Nik. They come in a number of sizes for specific wire gauges.

I usually add a wire when a trace is damaged.

Okay thanks, I once saw a person on YouTube who did replace the trace with new thin cobber, it was a fantastic result, almost looked like it had never been damaged! :-)
He used some sort of micro chisel to scrape and dig down under the trace.

This is a most important tool if you restore old amplifiers.
