I've never had anyone act indifferent about checking out tools. But if it bothers you, buy a blue roll of paper towels. You can always use those during the job.I just hate walking in to the auto parts store to rent "for free" a tool when I didn't buy any of the associated parts there.
My shop rags are 99% T shirts that I just knew I wouldn't get dirty while doing work that I ended up getting a stain that wouldn't come out on.Not everyone has old cloths to use a shop rags. Even I keep a roll of blue paper towels when I need clean up a spill and dispose. Great for when your beer gets knocked over.
True, but again, just trying to help @rjwindham to feel guiltless about using Orielly tools without buying anything. To bad they don't sell 2 cent bubble gum.Anyone with kids will always have some sort of old clothes ... nothing wrong if you have them to cut them up and re use them as rags. Saves a hell of alot of money these days.. Nothing wrong in using the blue paper towel stuff either ..or even that whitey tighty crap .. that people buy too works

I've searched and can't even find the ¢ key on my PC keyboards. Having to remember all those ASCII key codes still makes cents.

Did you ever think about coming up with a solution to clean the millions of dirty little silicone mouse balls? Thus the mass exodus to laser mouse.One of my neighbors claimed to be the "creator of the icon" when we moved here six years ago. I mentioned my time at Xerox SPARC about 45 years ago, that I didn't recognize him or his name, and he's been silent since. I worked on manufacturing methods for making the little silicone-coated lead balls that were used in the original computer mouse. remember those? Did software QC as a grad student for a GUI OS called GEM for Xerox, the true predecessor of both the Windows and MAC UI's that we all get to enjoy today. spent time at Visicorp, who made the commercial implementaions of VisiCalc, the predecessor of Lotus 123 and Excel. On a UI called VisiOn, that never passed my brutal QC regimen. We wrere working this for early 80286 prototypes with 16 bits (!!) of addressable memory.
Had ASCII codes memorized for a lot of years. Now, not so much...
My current keyboard still makse no cents to me. It also has speelling issues.
Dish detergent and DI water rinse. Same for keyboards with greasy brown keys. Manufacturing process used a little detergent/surfactant, alcohol rinse, then DI rinse for final cleaning. No reason not to use the same processes for maintenance. Helps a huge amount if you keep your hands washed, don't smoke and type (you could do that back then), don't spill stuff in keyboard or on mouse pad, keep mouse pad clean.Did you ever think about coming up with a solution to clean the millions of dirty little silicone mouse balls?
