String Cutters - GrooveTech, for guitar and bass
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.

Breadboard - Solderable PCB, 3.00” x 1.90”
The SB400 Solderable PCB BreadBoard enables you to transfer your circuit and wires from a plug-in breadboard without recutting wires or changing your layout. The SB400 has the same pattern and spacing as a standard 400 connection point BB400 solderless plug-in breadboard. It has a standard 5-hole strip for each IC pin, just like solderless breadboards plus 4 power rails. However, it has the advantage that soldered joints provide a more reliable long-term connection than solderless contacts. The SB400 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. BPS prototyping boards use high-quality FR4 glass epoxy PCBs for long life, with an anti-tarnish protective coating for easy soldering.

Threadlocker - Bob Smith Industries, IC-LOC Blue
IC-LOC™ Blue is a medium thickness, medium strength thread lock that is applied to the threads of fasteners before assembly. Once the IC-LOC Blue™ is cured, the fasteners can be disassembled with standard hand tools if required. Uses
  • Threads of fasteners
  • Bolts
  • Screws
  • Nuts

Directions: Shake well, then apply IC-LOC™ Blue to the clean and dry threaded areas before assembling non-plastic parts. Product sets in 10 minutes, with full cure within 24 hours. IC-LOC™ Blue is anaerobic and cures in the absence of air, which occurs when a bolt, screw or nut is tightened. IC-LOC™ Blue prevents loosening of fasteners from normal use and vibration, but parts can still be disassembled with hand tools. IC-LOC™ Blue seals and prevents rusting of threads. Cured temperature range is -60° to +300°F (-51° to +149°C). Remove residue with a damp cloth. Similar to Loctite Blue.
