We’ve been looking hard at our hand injuries lat ely and are focusing on cutting tool and glove selection. One thing in particular that we haven’t been able to come up with a good solution for is a tool that works well for removing tubing that has basically seized or 220;become one with” the glass connections on condensers, cold fingers, etc. I’m sure you’ve seen this before and most people reach for their pocket k nife or a razor blade. It generally ends badly. Either the blade sli ps or the glass breaks and in either situation we end up with stitches. Anyone found a tool that works better under these conditions?
