The world in a box

I've been checking all my electronics purchases. The RS parts don't come labelled either - glad I didn't order much from them. The Farnell parts are all labelled with country of origin - this is a real multinational supply. I have parts from China (expected), Taiwan (ditto), France, Ireland, Thailand, Mexico, Japan, the Philippines, Austria, the US, and the ribbon cable seems to be the only part from the UK! Wow.

Do I need a tool for the ribbon cable?

  1. Just a vice to squeeze the connectors shut and scissors to cut it. Possibly a sharp knife to trim the excess.
