Replacement tips for the Circuit Alert Screwdrivers.

We currently do not offer them as replacement parts. Technical Service does have a very limited supply of replacement tips.

Most standard replacement bit tips are expected to be used in a magnetic bit holder that will clip in to the driver. The Circuit Alert screwdrivers use bits that have a spring loaded ball bearing in them. We do this because with the Circuit Alert function of the screwdriver, the magnetic field from the magnet in the driver could cause false readings. If standard replacement tips are used, they will fall out of the screwdriver.

My Cable Boss staple gun is jamming!

If you are having trouble with the MSG-501 staple gun, please make sure that you are applying the appropriate amount of pressure when using. The correct amount of pressure to be used while on a flat surface; holding the staple gun as the manual instructed is 55lbs. More often than not, the user is trying to squeeze the handle using the force their hand. With the Cable Boss you want to use your body weight to trigger the staple gun.

Improper care of the tool can also cause it to jam or malfunction. Tool care should always be the priority after safety.

The MSTR-Torch, how do I add fuel?

Take the torch in one hand with the Gardner Bender logo facing towards you. You will notice a fine line right below the logo.

Put your other hand on that side of the torch and pull both sides apart. Once you have taken the casing apart you will find a small lighter inside.

You’ll notice that the lighter adjustment is facing a hole in front of the torch for easy adjustment. The case cannot be closed unless the lighter is put back in this same position.

Remove the lighter from the lower portion of the casing and turn it upside down. You will find a docking port for the lighter to be re-fueled. You will want to re-fuel the lighter in this position.

Put the lighter in your non-dominant hand and pick up the fuel container in your dominant hand. While holding the lighter upside down, insert the fuel containers fuel tip into the center of the refill valve of the lighter. Now press down with firm pressure and it will begin to fill the lighter. Don’t hold it down for too long, that will cause it to leak out. Instead you’ll want to use a pulsing motion as to not get sprayed with fluid.

These instructions to fuel the lighter are also on the Butane container.
This butane fueling bottle is like a whipped cream bottle, if you hold it up-right all you will get is the coolant and not the butane.
