Great RF Trimmer Tool – Ceramic Aligner Tool Reviews

posted by GordonGecco on 04/30/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
High quality ceramic trimmer tool to a low price.
Much better and sturdier than plastic trimmer tools.
Cons:
The length of the tool-shaft is a bit short for people with large hands (like me).
Other:
This is an essential tool for HAM operators and RF engineers that are building or modifying RF equipment. The ceramic tip on this tool makes it possible to tune variable capacitors, trimmers and inductors without affecting the circuit. I have previously used RF trimmer tools made of plastic and this tool is much better. The rigid construction of the tool makes tuning very precise and removes the "slack" that some plastic tools have. This tool has a small Phillips head so I’d also recommend that you get the flat head trimmer in the same series (sku.6538) for a complete set.
Bottomline:
Excellent product if you need it and know how to use it (it’s not a screwdriver!).
