@David: It stops her complaining when I disappear into my workshop for hours at a time...

@Max: Ah -- well played, sir!

That assumes your wife doesn't have double standards...

@Betajet...that's pertty handy, I think it would be more useful for screwdriving than as a drill extender - I see the hole has to be 5/8 or larger.

@JeffL - Many thanks.  Makes sense - I once put a bit of stripped Cat 6 wire in the 26 hole and could not get it out - had to pull it thru.  So I can see that with thinner wire wrap wire, you would put it thru to the point you wanted on the scale, then pull it back to strip it.  Is that how it worked?   Very clever.

@MB - thanks for all the pics and comments.  I love the set of Xcelite nut drivers. (is that what you call them there??)   Please post more, or better still repost the whole article - I am sure many EET readers did not see it.

@Max..."Who cares about beading?"   My wife does, she disappears into her sewing room for hours at a time and emerges with something fashionable and pretty.  It stops her complaining when I disappear into my workshop for hours at a time and emerge cussing and swearing that some !@#$%^& thing won't work.....

Actually I did a beading course with her.  It was easier than taking her there and collecting her a few hours later (she is disabled).  I was a star at putting things together but when I tried to pick colours that went well together all the other students (all women) would shake their heads sadly and say 'No, Dave, don't go there....."    So now I just help my wife put things together occsaionally (and she sometimes borrow some of my tools.....

Maybe it's for "Modified Wire-Wrap".  That's where the WW tool wraps insulated wire around the post one or two times before it starts wrapping bare wire.  Besides looking cooler, modified wrap moves any nick in the wire where you stripped it away from where the wrap begins, making it less likely for the wire to break off.

Use drill bit extension to make a long-handled screwdriver

I occasionally need a really-long-handled screwdriver to reach a difficult screw.  One way to make this is to use a 1/4" drill extender such as this one: Irwin 12-inch Drill Bit Extension.  Just stick in your favorite 1/4" power screwdriver bit and "Bob's your uncle".

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
