ATF Squirts...
« on: May 12, 2020, 02:55:28 AM »
Just a little mini collection I have.  The “NCETR” is short for National Center for Explosives Training and Research.  I’m assuming they went to the PS4 when the E4 was discontinued.  The other 3 are E4s, nice gift tin for one of them.   :cheers:

The EL/E4 is far superior to the ES4 due to the fine SD and tweezers vs. flimsy scissors. For small electronics, RC, and trains, I'm using what it has more than scissors. Never have I had to reach for it.

Nice little collection! I guess these things are just what's needed for bomb diffusal in well-trained hands.

Thanks Poncho and Cody, couldn’t agree more about the usefulness of the E4.  That tiny grip at the end of the wire stripper pliers is a super tweezer and the 3d Phillips is a nice touch also.   :cheers:

I am surprised at how strong the gripper is on the EL/E4. As I bought, and am finally now using my Radio Shack EL for model trains,  I have been using it to remove damaged rail joiners from the ends of the Markin "M-Track" model railroading track, and it has been able to take quite a bit of pulling force removing it.  And isn't the 3D Phillips exclusive to the EL/E4? I have not seen it on another model, but have used it a lot also.

Cody....I believe you are correct about the 3d Phillips being exclusive to the EL/E4.  Haven’t seen it elsewhere.  I used the gripper to remove a broken Wenger toothpick that I couldn’t get a grip on with anything else.  Saved removing the scales...yea!!!  👍. It’s a shame that the E4/S4/P4 series is no longer made but I guess that compromises must be made to stay profitable 😢.     :cheers:
