The first link has better pictures but the second has a better price.
They will do the same job as the one in the video.

I linked a full set but got the reply "i give up" so i don't understand what he is after.
Unless "Trimmer tool" is the answer he is looking for.????

He will end up with nobody answering any questions he posts up.
I am not a person to ignore people asking questions if i can help in any way but have to draw the line somewhere.

firstly, when i said i give up, its because clearly you dont know the item, 
secondly i spoke to the guy in the video and he told me this, 

It's unfortunately now discontinued. R.S. Components used to sell three types of Trimming Tool, the yellow one I use, that black one with two different phosphor-bronze ends & a blue plastic one that doesn't fit very much that we see. I'm having to use ceramic trimming tools & got a cheapish set via AliExpress. We also use the "colour tv alignment set" which Rapid Electronics still sell. The green hexagonal tool in that kit is vital. If we lost the black tool you saw, I'd have to make one out of wooden dowling with a phosphor-bronze flat strip inserted. Sometimes that PB flat strip could be recovered from the carrier strip that some Molex type connector pins are supplied with as a bandolier.

and this >>Your not the only one Alan to give up I've asked questions to him too to help and he seems to only answer certain questions ,still never mind hope he sorts it out .




does not help the situation,  all i said was i give up, there was no malice no anger nothing, just that i gave up trying to find it,  and i have always thanked people for helping, 


but if your going to rude, and turn this in to some thing it is not, then i am not to blame, 


i wasnt rude or nasty or anything, i am sick of taking dig's by people, speak nice or don't bother,

I was using trimer tools nearly 40 years ago so i do know what they are called even if they are a bit harder to find today.
I wouldn't want any metallic bits just plastic or nylon. 
People try to help and i put a link to the "Trimmer tool set" what else did you want.
