Tiny Tools

Every so often I come across tools that just seem to make life all that much more easier. Short of purchasing dental tools at a premium price, Pro'sKit (www.proskit.com) makes a selection of small tools that work excellent for fixing old reels, cleaning and restoring old hardware, taking grime out of pawl springs, sweeping or picking grime out of spools, and generally great for getting in tight spaces. I use some of these tools to clean my string binder as well as cleaning grime out of guide feet when overhauling and refinishing rods.

Having little tools such as these in the face of all the adversities rod making dishes up is priceless, and for 10 bucks you can't beat it!
