    Quoted from spinal:

    Newb here... could someone explain when, how, why, where you would use these fiberglass erasers? Just for electronic work or do they have other uses? Before soldering, after? (Thanks)

    They work GREAT when doing board work to clean pads before soldering & anywhere else that needs a good pre-solder cleaning. Just make sure & have a bunch of extra tips on hand.

    I just go to a buddy's printing shop & pick up some heavier weight paper in "parchment" color

    Quoted from Vic_Camp:

    I think their called orange sticks. https://www.jonard.com/searchresults?term=s-389&reset=y
    I use this stick to work on switch blades when filing contacts. This stick allows you to get into the switch stacks with ease. The pointed end can be inserted on the backside of a switch contact rivet which allows a force of pressure bring two contacts together that needs cleaning.
    I demonstrate this sticks use on one of my you tube videos which can be found at....Vic Camp Pinball: Super Score (unusual findings) with Trip Bank issues part 7

    I use those for applying rosin on soldering projects too
