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.

$5.45 String Cutters - CruzTOOLS GrooveTech, for guitar and bass CruzTOOLS developed the GrooveTech 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.$11.95
