seems like it would make moresense if it was made of plastic or hard rubber. But I like tools too... may get one.

Why would it be better as plastic or rubber? So you can remove the board with power to it :) Or cost? My guess is he knew someone local that works with metal and is making them for him.

Ah. Well I'm sure you are always wearing your grounded electrostatic wrist strap when changing circuit boards anyway right :)

YeS, I read the other day that you don't even have to touch the board in order to transfer enough static discharge scramble the board. Just by going close to it, you're body has enough power to do the job.

That's what they say. They had us take ESD training in the military. I've still never used one of those wrist straps :)

Durham, he sent me 2 of them. I guess because I emailed him about him not sending me one back in March to try out on appliances. I was going to keep it for spare, but if you want to message me your address I'll send it to you. I haven't tested it yet since they just came in today. I was right too. He did design one end for the smaller standoffs and the other end for the bigger standoffs.
