I am a sucker for CountyComm and their eclectic assortment of gadgets that I didn’t know I needed. I think I placed my first order there when I was in college, likely around 2000 or 2001. The first order was followed by several more over the years and one of those early orders included the handy Norton’s UCS or Universal Cleaning Stick.
CountyComm just introduced a new version of the UCS in titanium. The original plastic UCS is great for light scraping, pushing rags into nooks and crannies while cleaning, and even for setting stubborn pins or detents in tight spots. I expect that the titanium version would do all of that but could be even better at setting pins because of the additional rigidity. As you can see in the image above, the more rigid titanium also allows the UCS to turn screws – another trick that the original couldn’t really do effectively.
