~Best flashlight thingy I've purchased so far~

Every problem that I have had with my lights (so far) this thing has fixed.

Loose pill on my freebie Black Cat was causing light to flicker; fixed

Loose switch in the tailcap of my Ultrafire 504; fixed

Loose stainless bezel ring in my Solarforce; fixed

Loose pill in my manafont drop-in; fixed!

 

best $1.75 I've spent (got mine from ShiningBeam)

 

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Agreed. Tweezers of varying size and shape for torque application devices is the best. Its the First tool I would buy, followed by split ring pliers for when you need to work on an internal ring that requires outward force (bezel rings, novatac pill ring). 

 

Can also recommend reducing the tip, shortening it a little to reduce the sharp point to make it stronger (depending on the size of what your trying to turn)

I bought a pair of the Weitus or WTS branded bent nose tweezers a while ago, even with the good reviews I didn't think they could be any where near as good quality as they are. I've now got 4 diffrent styles of them Smile

I also find these a must have:

3 sheets with around 10 "discs" on each. Expensive for what they are but these are the good ones.

Yep, got one of those tweezers from SB. Those and a Leatherman is pretty much all one needs to do whatever. Approved by MacGyver Tongue out 

And those split ring pliers come in handy sometimes too.
