Quote from: jsowers on January 03, 2011, 03:28:46 PMMy fingerwheel tool looks identical to Dave's and is a KS16750L2 and has a black cover that I don't use. I got it on eBay years ago from Kansas City, Kansas. It came with a pouch of unstamped number cards and a stamper and ink pad. I have no idea the difference between the 1 and 2 versions. It's very handy and one of my favorite tools. <snip>
Quote from: masstel on January 03, 2011, 03:47:06 PMThis is my finger wheel removal tool. Got it in a lot of phone stuff from eBay last year. Until then I had been using paper clips. I can't tell you how much easier it is to do it the right way using the tool, you just can't get a good grip on the paper clip, even if you leave 75% of it "unbent".My tool came with a red "pen cap" top which isn't pictured.While we're on the subject, does anybody have any idea what the intended function the right-angle bent part of the tool is?
