I have found these tools to be very helpful and make completing jobs easier!
- Dewalt 9mm Snap-Off Knife: Not for the faint of heart but this knife can be used to discreetly remove cast. Of course you use it in conjunction with your cut strip of choice and only need to push the blade out to one or two clicks, just long enough to cut through the casting material and nothing else. Is your blade starting to get dull? No problem snap it off and keep going.
- "Super Mite" Serrated Cutter Product #: 50/1550-125: These are a great cast removal tool, especially when working with young children who may spook easily at the sight of a cast saw or hook blade. These can be purchased at most O&P distributors.
- BLACK+DECKER Lithium-Ion Cordless Rechargeable LED Screwdriver: Having a compact and lite weight cordless electric screwdriver can help save you time and frustration. Either when assembling or adjusting a Jewett in a hospital room or attaching an ankle joint to an AFO, an electric screwdriver can save time. The speed of an electric screwdriver can also aid in removing or fastening stubborn screws, just be sure not to strip them out.
