- Mar 9, 2013Jeff,
As I recall, the bits are available but pricey. I picked up a similar tool at the MIT Swap Meet a few years ago minus the bit, but balked at the price of a new bit and never bought one.
If you're getting into anything big though, and no-one comes up with a no-cost bit, I'd recommend spending the money on it. On the last large-scale wire-wrap project I worked on, I used a hand wire-wrap tool from R*dio Sh*ck. Actually I used two: the first one wore out. Not having a power wire-wrap tool really slowed things down and the quality of the work suffered.
Maybe I should dig mine out and get it working. Who knows how much longer bits will be available ?

I finally got an OK brand wire-wrap tool:
the one where you squeeze the handle.
Does anyone have spare bits for it?
