Whenever you work on a computer, or other electronic device that has an electrical board, circuit card or other conductive elements there is the potential for an Electro Static Discharge. This ESD is very dangerous to the components within the electronic device. For this reason using ESD hand tools and other accessories will make sure repairs go smoothly.
At Kimco we carry an extensive line of various ESD hand tools and supplies for large industrial settings and home hobbyists. Through out testing we have found that the best way to control ESD is through a wrist strap or ESD safe mat to work on. However, using special ESD tools will also ensure that you can do the work with confidence in being protected.
For instance, the ASG 64293 SSCR-4000-ESD ESD-Safe Class 100 Shock-Absorbing Driver is a great tool for working with small screws and parts, while also keeping an ESD safe environment. Another great tool is the Excelta 2643 ESD-Safe Round Nose Smooth Jaw Pliers that are made of stainless steel, but also coated with ESD safe material.
Keeping ESD under control is something that those within their home garage working on a new computer, or building one from scratch, will want to pay special attention to. With ESD safe pliers, drivers, cutters, wrenches, and other tools, these worries are drastically minimized.
