S-T-MAGNETIZER Tool - Magnetizer / Demagnetizer
Small magnetizer / demagnetizer for use with hand tools. Simply pass a tool such as a screwdriver through the square hole to magnetize the tool and pass it through the u-shaped channel to demagnetize the tool. Note: When passing through the square cutout to magnetize a tool, be sure to keep the tool from touching the four walls of the magnetizer to ensure a proper magnetization. When using the demagnetizer, the tool can touch the plastic of the channel.

P-PC-SB404 Breadboard - Solderable PCB, 3.75” x 1.85”, Mounting Holes
Solderable PC BreadBoard enables you to transfer your circuit and wires from a plug-in breadboard without recutting wires or changing your layout. This breadboard has the same pattern as a standard 400 connection point solderless plug-in breadboard which has a standard 5-hole strip for each IC pin, just like solderless breadboards. However, it has the advantage that soldered joints provide a more reliable long-term connection than solderless contacts. The board has four power rails like solderless breadboards, plus two bonus rails for power or signals. There are bonus two-hole pads along the centerline allowing DIL (dual in-line) headers to be used as well as a top side silkscreen to position components. Four mounting holes allow your projects to be secured.

GrooveTech developed the String Cutters specifically for Guitar and Bass strings. Guitar and bass strings are made of hardened stainless steel or nickel with thicknesses as high as 3mm. Ordinary diagonal cutters are designed for soft copper, and thus fail miserably when used on strings. GrooveTech String Cutters were developed specifically for this application, using a proprietary heat-treatment process. Despite its compact five-inch length, even “B” bass strings cut easily and your days of dented blades will be a thing of the past. Vinyl grips feel great in your hands.
