    So Cute!

    posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small. Accurate. Useful. Cheap. Did I say small? Front-panel real estate is hard to come by - with these units you can add oh-so-hip analog metering to almost any device and - as others have noted - they are easy to customize with your own scale and graphi...
    Cons:
    They are plastic (what would you expect at this price point?) and I would have preferred metal. In some applications they might...

    How can you go wrong?

    Pros:
    Absolutely necessary accessory to help keep a soldering iron clean. A dirty soldering iron is impossible to use so these are an essential item to have handy. The price is extremely cheap and the pads are durable and effective. the package contains quite a f...

    There are no cons for this item especially at this price.

    Handy item to prevent wear and tear on computer connectors

    posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you make and break connections to your USB ports frequently, insert these cable in the jacks on your computer, so you can wear out a $1.50 cable instead of the jack on your computer. Also the position of the jack can be moved to a more convenient place.
    Cons:
    I don't really like the bright blue color, and they are a little stiff.

    These connectors exceeded my expectations

    posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I am using these to make a multiple connection between a bipolar power supply and a small mixer. They are ideal for this purpose and the quality is excellent. The price is MUCH less than other types of multi pin connectors. These connectors do not mate with...
    Cons:
    I'd like to know a specification for maximum voltage and current for these connectors. I'd also like to be able to purchase set...

    Better set than others I've owned

    posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The set contains a wide variety of hooks, chisels, points, and brushes. The ends are well secured in the plastic handles. The ends reject solder well.
    Cons:
    This product has almost no cons especially at the price. The only thing I would change is to add a case or other type of holder...

    A rough but useful tool.

    posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    this knife has a sharp blade made of good steel. and it is easily resharpened or reshaped as needed. Fairly large size m- this is a handy tool to have in your tool bag for general cutting purposes.
    Cons:
    The shaping of this knife is a little crude and this is probably why it is inexpensive.

    Handy size, good quality

    posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great small sized board for making up supplemental circuits for modifying existing gear. Great quality board and copper. Pad-per-hole pattern is useful for many types of projects.
    Cons:
    Sometimes it's more convenient to have a pattern of connecting bus strips in between holes on a proto board, this is pad-per-hole.
