Product details

IC Pin Straightening Tool

A universal tool for quickly and easily straightening the pins of all sizes of dual in-line ICs. The tool operates like a vice and has two sprung, outer ‘jaws’ which close upon a centre portion. To use, simply drop the IC pins into the two slots and squeeze both sides of the tool together. The tool is double sided, with the centre portion being 7.62mm (0.3in.) wide on one side for 8, 14, 16, 18 and 20-pin DIL ICs, and 15.24mm (0.6in.) wide for 24, 28, 40, 42 and 48-pin ICs on the other side. To protect CMOS devices, an earth wire may be attached to the screw provided on one face, to neutralise static. Made in moulded black plastic. Dimensions: 81mm long x 37mm wide x 12mm thick.
