Lightbulb Duluth Trading 28011 Wire Bender

Duluth Trading 28011 Wire Bender... LINK

This showed up on one of my feeds, BF priced at $4.17 inc. S/H so I bought an extra for my dot's BF.

Wasn't quite ready to use out of the bag, had to clean the sharp edges from the pins so they would fit in the holes. Mounted to a piece of scrap Alum angle but had to use my own flathead 10-24 screws as heads of the supplied screws were far too small and would probably pull through the holes if any torque was put on them.

I bought mainly on impulse of "that might come in handy some day". Whipped up a quick creation with some 3/32" 4043 rod...

Darn you again. Had to try a couple. And found a few more things. Another $100 gone!

I made a couple s hooks out of coat hangers for work already. Of course I bought 3, one for work tool box, one for home tool box, and one to give away as a Christmas present to 13 year old kid I was helping him build his tree house. I also got him one of those cheap electric meters Bob mentioned in another thread.

I figured a couple of these items will help plant a seed in him as to learning some good education.

What is BF pricing? Comes up $6.95 for me, nevermind shipping.
