Our Fiber Optics Tools web site is different than most because we do not recommend tools and equipment that we do not use.  
As a matter of fact, many of the high-priced fiber optics tools and test equipment are just that -
High priced and unnecessary.

You can be assured that all of our tools and test equipment offered on this site are of the highest quality.  Many of the pieces of
test equipment are, in fact, made in the United States.

We guarantee satisfaction on all of our products.
