When searching for shop accessories chances are you will run across several types of pick up tools. One of these is a vacuum pick up tool. This often pen-sized tool may not do much for those with woodworking or metal shops, but if your interests lie with electronic components, you should definitely give this tool a look. Many are small enough to fit in your pocket, made to pick up and safely move delicate electronic components without marring or scratching. These are static-free suction devices designed to accommodate the needs of small electronic parts. Other larger models do the same job with either a vacuum cup or suction.
