Heathkit Tool.

wa9fvp
Years ago I built a Heathkit SB101 and other smaller projects. Normally they would include a very a handy tool.  It's a plastic, what I call, a "nut holding" tool.  Keeping it all these years I found it to be very handy while assembling my KPA500, KAT500 and K3S.

Jack,

I totally agree, very handy!  I still have every one that came with a
Heathkit that I assembled.

Very handy. It was called a Nut Starter. All mine became too worn to use. I tried soda straws of different diameter and they sort of work for awhile, but they tend to split. Turns out Mouser.com has them for about 2 bucks. Search for Menda, the manufacturer or "Nut Starter". I had them throw one in on a previous order. Looks the same only black so probably the original mfr.

Menda might private brand them with "Elecraft" as a promotional giveaway at trade shows or something...

old...

The one I have is worn out, but ---
I just ordered 10 of them from Small Bear Electronics - $1.75 each.  I
will have a lifetime supply when they are delivered.

This post reminded me of the great time I had building and using Heathkit instruments and amateur radio kits.  While cleaning up in the shack today, I found a cache of 2-nut holding tools and 8-alignment screw drivers.  I know the alignment tools will come in handy when I attempt to align an old Hallicrafters SX-100 receiver.
