Tool Review : Circuit Board Stand-off tool!



An interesting tool that supposedly makes it easier to remove boards from those pesky plastic stand-offs.


My thoughts before getting it:

1) Expensive

2) I could make one

3) Limited use

My thoughts after receiving it:

1) This thing is nicely built

2) Looks very professional,

3) I can't wait to try it

My thoughts after using it:

1) Love it!

2) Makes removing boards a snap

3) I'd buy one again in a heartbeat.

How easy is it to use this tool? Well, I took the following video using my left hand while I removed a GE board from its standoffs with just my right.


Thanks to Brother BryanS for introducing me to this tool. It still would be nice if it could double as a blow gun... but I guess I can't have everything.

lol yeah.... the little girl was cute but the little boy kept trying to get into my tool bag. That's why I want the tool to double as a blow gun. "oh so you think you can make off with my Fluke laser thermometer, eh?" Zap! Tranquilizer dart right to the diaper.

However, that is not the video I wanted to use... Ok.. video changed... no midget tool theif to distract me.... ahhh peace and quiet.

And even removed it one-handed. Now that's slick!
