Title: BNC Tool
Post by: maarvold on May 16, 2010, 05:12:20 pm
I don't know about anyone else, but every couple of months I end up having to rework some aspect of my wordclock setup.  I have big hands and it's always a pita trying to deal with BNC connector mating in a confined space.  A tech at one of the studios showed me this BNC insertion/extraction tool:

They run around $15.00 and mine works like a charm.  I found mine by Google searching for "BNC tool".

Yeah these things are essential when working at a post production house or a television station!

Cheers,

I got one years ago when doing video installations. Quite the knuckle saver.
