I believe having a solid medical kit in your car is a must. Part of that kit should be some kind of medical shears, and the Leatherman Raptor shears are pretty amazing. They fold and fit in to the multi-position sheath, but they can also be placed in the sheath when they are fully opening. There's a ring cutter, a strap cutter (which can be used when they are closed or open), and they have a ruler on the lower of the two blades. They now come in orange or coyote brown, and I am looking forward to getting my hands on these. Check them out. _______ Interested in purchasing this item? They are currently available only in black (the orange and the coyote brown will be out in a few months).

http://www.ScubaGuru.com founder Tec Clark gives a two-part instructional video on how to "prep" or "pre-treat" dive masks. New dive masks have a residue on the lenses which needs to be removed prior to first use. In this video we will explore the best agents and the best techniques to use for safely getting rid of this residue as we pre-treat the dive mask.

This edition of the series of programs explaining the technology used to produce items that are familiar in our daily life features ‘Steel Balls’. A bicycle wheel spins smoothly because the wheel axle contains ball bearings. The steel balls inside the ball bearing must be close to perfectly spherical. The program introduces the production method of high-precision steel balls with a margin of error of less than 0.1 micrometers.
A totally non-scientific and possibly flawed test of various dive cutting tools, including EMT shears. Note that I am not placing any fault or flaw on the red line cutter, I'm sure this is just a case of where an end-user had unreasonable expectations of its capabilities.
If nothing else it was good for a laugh and I learned something new!
