This may be a really silly question, but what the heck is a spudger?
– J.M. via email
There are no silly questions…just silly humans. But, spudger is certainly a silly word for a very useful tool.
Spudgers have been around for a while, but have seen a renewed popularity with the increased use of cell phones, tablets, and other modern electronics. A basic definition of a spudger is:
A tool used for poking or adjusting small wires and components or opening the cases of mobile phones, computers, and other electronic or telecommunications devices.
Often made of wood or plastic, spudgers are non-conductive/antistatic tools that are perfect for working with sensitive electronics. A glass-filled, nylon plastic spudger made by 3M is available at QSource.com.
So, J.M., your "silly" question about this handy stick we call a spudger has been answered. Just what is it about you humans and your fascination with sticks anyway? Heh, heh.
