Not only for dentists!
While the Philips screwdriver remains the most oft-utilized tool on our boat, there are countless others that we have need for on a regular basis. Although a bit more uncommon, one that we use quite a bit is a pick, similar to that which might be put into service by a dentist. To be honest, I’m not sure where I even picked up our set of picks, or when. I do use them so frequently though that I keep at least one within easy reach all of the time.
The forceps, also pictured below, I have not had cause to use all that often. Our friend Bob on Boat Bits reportedly uses them for splicing though so, when I came across an inexpensive set in a tool store one day, I decided to add them to our kit. You just never know!
Picks: they’re not just for dentists anymore!
