  • Spyderco Endura or Endura II or Delica Knife
    Spyderco Endura or Endura II Knife

The serrated version is a great heavy duty rope cutting knife. A stagehand's working partner. Best overall for what we do is the partially serrated blade.

    Two options: The Endura with a lightweight Zytel grip and locking blade or the Endura II with an all stainless steel grip. Current Endura II's have slight cosmetic scratches on grips. Steel belt clip comes on both models. 1 year warranty by manufacturer. Starts at $55.95

  • Lansky Diamond Universal knife sharpener
    Lansky Diamond Universal knife sharpener$85.95
    Four diamond hones mean fast sharpening. Sharpens serrated and plain edge blades. Perfect edges every time.

    On the surface, the Diamond Lansky knife sharpening system looks just like the standard except the difference, of course, is that the diamond system uses quick cutting diamond hones to sharpen your knife blades to a perfect edge every time. And here's something special you get from TOOLS FOR STAGECRAFT. Normally, the diamond Lansky knife sharpening system only comes with three flat diamond hones. As with the standard system, I realize the importance of being able to sharpen serrated blades. That's why I add a forth hone -- a ceramic triangular hone to sharpen those serrated blades. Anywhere else, you'll find the diamond system includes three flat hones only. The four-hone diamond Lansky knife sharpening system for plain and serrated blades is special from TOOLS FOR STAGECRAFT.

    When using the Lansky knife sharpening system, you know that your blades are being sharpened with the same perfect angle on both sides of the blade. As you draw the hone across the starionary blade, the hone stays at exactly the angle you choose. You can't make a mistake.

    The Special TOOLS FOR STAGECRAFT Lansky diamond knife sharpening system comes with three diamond flat hones for your plain edge blades: course, medium and fine. The forth triangular ceramic hone is especially designed for serrated blades.

    In addition to the four hones, our diamond kit comes with blade vice, hone rods, oil, and durable plastic carrying case. When sharpening with the diamond hones, lubricate the hones with water instead of oil.
  • Triangular Ceramic Hone Sharpener
    Triangular Ceramic Hone Sharpener$14.95

  • DMT Folding Serrated Knife Sharpener
    Folding Serrated Knife Sharpener$29.95
    Diamond coated steel tapered rod. Very convenient.

    Want a diamond knife sharpener that you can carrying in your tool bag? When you need it, just whip it out and it's ready for action! This tapered diamond coated steel rod folds into its own handle for storage like a butterfly knife. It's an excellent sharpener for your Spyderco serrated knives as well as any other serrated or plain edge knife. Fast, easy durable and easy to toss into your tool bag. Sharpening rod is 4 1/2" long.

    When sharpening a serrated blade, choose the thickness of the rod that matches your knife blade serration and push the sharpener forward. That's all there is to it. And it's fast because it's diamond.

  • Thomas and Betts Stripper and Crimper
    Thomas and Betts Stripper/Crimper$59.95
    It's a stripper. It's a bolt cutter. It's a crimper.
    Simply the best tool of its kind.

    My favorite feature on this superb tool is the wire cutter at the tip of the tool where it belongs. Allows you to work in tight places. Crimps insulated and non-insulated Sta-Kons. Cuts threaded bolts cleanly and easily. Wire strippers for various gauge wire. Locks in closed position for storage. Truely the best.
  • circular wire strips and slits cable up to 4/0 size
    Circular Wire Stripper$59.95
    Stripping rubber-jacketed cable has never been easy, until now.

    Strip any size cable up to 4/0 with ease. Pull out the spring-loaded angled keeper and release it into place around the cable. Spin the stripper around the cable until it's cut to the depth you've set. Then just push the lever to turn the blade 90 degrees and pull the stripper off the cable. Voila! The insulation is cut all the way from the circular cut lengthwise to the end of the cable. Never use dangerous razor blades again.

  • Universal chuck key fits a variety of electric drill chucks

  • Stubby finder driver helps hold long screws when using electric drill
    Stubby Finder / Driver$12.95
    When placing screws, I always use my finder/driver. It can be used on any drill/screwgun.

    It magnetically holds in place any bit you choose and it has a sleeve which slides over the screw. This is great for placing screws in hard to reach places.

    I've found another good use for the finder/driver. Use it when hanging wall sconces. It happens so often, you can't get your screwgun in between the prongs of a sconce so you can't screw the mounting plate to the wall. The additional length of the finder/driver allows you to get into those tight places.

    The finder/driver comes with two bits: one slotted, one phillips.
  • self healing cutting mat perfect base for cutting theatrical gel
  • Silent Santronics Tick Tracer non-contact electrical presence
    Santronics Tick Tracer$29.95
    Checks for electrical current without breaking the connection.

    A "volt tick" is a handy tool that belongs in every electrician's toolpouch or shirtpocket. Got a bad lamp? Check to see if it's getting current quickly and easily by just TOUCHING THE CABLE with the tip of the tester. It tests for voltage right through the insulation!

    The Santronics AC Sensor is powered by two AAA batteries. To replace the batteries, just unscrew the white cap. The The Santronics is always ready for use. It never has to be turned on or off. If there's current passing though the cable the entire white tip will glow a steady red.

    FAQ: John, I'm confused. I can't decide which "volt tick" to buy. Can you offer any help?
    Sure, it's really a matter of balancing personal taste with the situations you think you'll be using it in most. The Greenlee with its audible ringer is a good choice especially while focusing. There are always situations when you need to check a cable, but can't see the tester because you're blocked by the light. The ringer solves that situation. On the other hand, if you're working shows that are inherently quiet (soaps, theatre) the silent Santronics allows you to check cables without worrying about the noise of a ringer. I carry both the Greenlee and Santronics in my tool bag because I never know what situation I might be in.
  • Magnet Block will magnetize or demagnetize your metal tools
    Magnet Block$7.95
    Magnetizes / Demagnetizes

    Pass the screwdriver back and forth through the hole in the center and magnetize your screwdriver. To demagnetize, pass the screwdriver back and forth along the slot on the outside of the block.

    Will also magnetize/demagnetize individual bits used in multi-bit screwdrivers.
  • Klein Tool used by riggers to pull steel cable without crushing it
    Klein Tool$89.95
    The Large Klein Tool is the industry standard and used by riggers to haul steel cable.

    Made by Klein, its actual name is a "Haven Grip." The large size is used for cable from 1/8" to 1/2" diameter. It also has a locking device to keep the cable from slipping out.

    The small Klein Tool is used for cable from 1/16" to 1/4" diameter. This is a non-locking cable puller.
  • Klein Ratcheting Cable Cutter
    Klein Ratcheting Cable Cutter$299.95
    Cuts electrical cable up to 4/0 in size with one hand.

    Cutting 4/0 electrical cable cleanly is no easy job. Unless of course you're using the Klein Ratcheting Cable Cutter!

    Make simple work of cutting or stipping electrical cable up to 1 1/4" thick. Cut through 4/0 with ONE HAND.

    The ratcheting cutter closes like a pair of handcuffs. It tightens and cuts through the thickest cable as you ratchet it closed with one hand. And here's another great feature: you can stop at any point and remove the cable--that means you can strip cable with this cutter too!

    Every head electrician should have one.
  • Greenlee Tick Tracer
    Greenlee Tick Tracer$31.95
    Checks for electrical current without breaking the connection.

    A "volt tick" is a handy tool that belongs in every electrician's toolpouch or shirtpocket. Got a bad lamp? Check to see if it's getting current quickly and easily by just TOUCHING THE CABLE with the tip of the tester. It tests for voltage right through the insulation!

    The Greenlee is powered by two button batteries. To replace the batteries, just pull off the black cap.
