Recently I was chasing a misfire. One of my customers turned me on to these:

They are long & strong, very sharp, bendable, with a good area to clip your test wire onto.

I can see where they would come in handy. At $2.99 box definitely worth getting some and keeping them in the tool box. Thanks for this.

I usually "borrow" a straight pin (the type with a plastic head) that my

wife stocks for doing sewing projects. They are also really great for

holding balsa wood model pieces for gluing. And they are easy to find...
