We’ve had the traditional ripstop fabric Bucket Boss items for several years now, but last week All-Spec added over 50 Bucket Boss items including their new line of leather and suede tool organizers including workbelts, tool pouches, waist aprons and tool belts.
In addition to the leather and suede tool organizers, we also added a few traditional looking Bucket Boss tool organizers.
To get the word out about our new Bucket Boss products we’ve put ALL Bucket Boss on sale while supplies last, so stock up and save 51% on Bucket Boss. Don’t forget Father’s Day is June 20; Bucket Boss makes a great gift for dad.
Problems caused by static electricity date back hundreds of years. In the 1400s, precautions had to be taken to prevent black powder from igniting and in the 1860s, paper mills grounded equipment to dissipate static electricity. ESD became a big issue several decades ago when electrical devices became faster, smaller and more susceptible to electrostatic discharge.
Here’s part one of a Apple training video from 1987. It appears the goal of the video (which is separated into four parts for YouTube) is to educate Apple employees on how to protect static sensitive devices by shielding devices, grounding themselves and keeping all plastic/synthetic materials away.

I’m often annoyed by CAPTCHAs (a test to make sure a response is from a human and not a computer), but the CAPTCHA below is creative and fits perfectly with the Adafruit Industries blog.
The CAPTCHA was a requirement to submit a comment.
While on the blog, I noticed Adafruit is having a contest for the most damaged, oxidized, corroded soldering iron or soldering tip. All you need to do to enter the contest is post a link of a picture of your damaged iron/tip or add the picture to the Adafruit Flickr pool and tag it with “solderingiron.”
MicroCare’s TidyPen is one of All-Spec’s more popular items, but that’s not very surprising since it’s such a versatile cleaner/tool.
The TidyPen is designed to be an efficient and economical tool for a variety of people and tasks in the home, office and industrial environments.
Common uses for the TidyPen:
- Remove tape residue and glues
- Remove labels, stickers, barcodes, etc..
- Remove tar from your car
- Spot clean PCBs
In addition to being versatile, the pen is easy to use, easy to store and spill proof, even if nib falls out.
Trying to go green? The cleaner in TidyPens is natural, biodegradable and safe for the environment, plus the TidyPen is aluminum so it can be recycled when empty!
You can see the MicroCare TidyPen in action in the video below.
We recently reduced the price of the MicroCare TidyPen and we stock both the TidyPen plus chisel and pencil point replacement nibs!
