Dental kit for your toolbox

MAKE reader Monopole writes in with an a minty fresh tool for getting in to small places and lighting them up, but this tool is not used in its indented way… – it’s a dental kit for your tool box.

Three indispensable tools for any maker are dental tools (for poking around in little things), dental (i.e. inspection mirrors) for looking in difficult to reach places, and of course flashlights to illuminate dark corners. So I was overjoyed to discover at the local supermarket that GUM is selling a neat pack of two nice dental picks, and a dental mirror with an integrated flashlight in the handle for less than ten bucks ! The mirror with the integrated flashlight is worth it alone. When you need a dental mirror you invariably need a flashlight as well as a free hand!

    FYI — I just picked up one of these in my local supermarket (ShopRite, in NJ), and it was only $4.99 + tax. The mirror uses 3 button batteries (included), and the 2 attachments thread into the handle. If you’re careful when opening the card from the back, the package can be used to store the items together when not in use. Otherwise, they’ll float around in your toolkit. Excellent & inexpensive set of tools! Thanks for the tip! — Geoff
