You know the story...you put that antenna up last summer and the ground under it is now littered with broken zip ties.  Cheap junk from the big box stores that can’t handle mother nature.

Introducing Thomas and Betts Ty-Rap® brand cable ties.  50 pound test.  Completely UV stable.  Stainless steel locking device for maximum strength and maximum life.  Ty-Rap's smooth, notch less body reduces the number of stress points to increase its useful life, while ribs and stipples grip the bundle and prevent slipping.  The low-profile head and its oval shape make it easier to pull bundled cables through bulkheads.  Easier on your hands, too. 

Let me know if there is a specific size or style you are after. Chris at KF7P dot com.

Our Premium Solder is a low temperature silver bearing rosin-core solder with a melting point of 430°F (221°C) composed of 96.5% Tin, 3.5% silver and a rosin-Core of 3% and works on silver, copper, bronze, stainless steel and nickel.  It's low melting point minimizes heating of delicate parts, while producing a strong conductive bond.  The rosin soldering flux breaks down the oxide of the metals, layer the parts, and promote a strong metallic bond between the solder and parts.  The silver content of 3.5% provides added strength, vibration resistance and better conductivity than non-silver based solder.  15 foot roll in easy dispenser tube.

Ferrite marking pens

Customize your ferrite for easy identification with our marking pens!  Ferrite comes in different formulas or “mixes”, and it is almost impossible to tell different mixes apart.  Be sure to get some of these inexpensive marking pens and customize your ferrite so you know which type to use.  White can be used as a base  for writing on with black (or other colors), or a color code chart can be used in a way similar to resistor color codes.  12 colors available.
