A critical, but often overlooked bench tool - the beeswax stick. This is how you get a cab out of a setting if you drop it in and it gets stuck before you are ready to set it. The wax is sticky enough to grip the cab when pressed against it, and can be used to retrieve all but the most firmly lodged cabs. The light colored one, I just made from the other half of the candle shown. The dark colored one has been on or around my bench for 15 years or so.
