Tool Hound Favorites: 12-in. Hemostatcomments (0) July 18th, 2011 in Blogs
For today's random, favorite, can't live without tool, we hear from Finehomebuilding.com web producer, Rob Wotzak:
"I got one of these hemostats as a Christmas present from my wife's uncle last year. I had remembered using one as a teenager to clamp a fuel line shut before pulling the carburetor off of my '62 Cutlass, but because I don't work on cars much anymore, I figured that this one would just collect dust on the back of my workbench. I was wrong. I've since used it for many tasks, from retrieving a slipped drawstring from my daughter's hooded sweatshirt to pulling caulk and debris from around old radiator pipes where they penetrate my old pine floors." - Rob Wotzak
Sounds like the kind of tool you would find a lot of random uses for over the years, especially in hard to reach areas! $9 buys you this problem-solver at NorthernTool.com. It's also worth looking into the curved nose version of this tool.
