The rest of those screwdrivers in the other pic weren't expensive. The 2 Husky's together make a good set, 1 of em has standard (philips/flathead) bits & the other has hex/allen bits. Probly like 4 bux a piece or something. That general tools screwdriver in the pic has alot of nice bits too, it was probly like 5-10 bux...

 

Everything in those 2 pics i posted was purchased at Lowe's and Home Depot.

 

If you're gonna get the electric Black & Decker tho, i recommend spending the extra 5-10 bux and getting the better one that has a trigger on it. The cheaper one that i have has to pressed at the top of it to make it spin, a standard trigger would be MUCH more convenient!!

I could always use some extra tools like that around the house. Once springtime rolls around, I have a few different garden projects I'm doing and those tools will come in handy.

Not only that but since I dropped close to 3,000 bucks on my rig parts, what's another couple of bucks for tools?

I have a Black and Decker powerdriver for around the house it works great, but it seems way too imprecise for pc work, at least to me. Had way too many small screws drop deep into the dark recesses of my chassis never to be seen again so finally got one of these little magnetizers from a company in Germany called Wiha. Also invested in one quality driver that I use exclusively for pc assembly upgrades and mods only. It’s a Wera Tools Kraftform Kompakt 1/4in bits driver (also made in Germany) with a rapid bit release and bayonet extension, also holds 6 bits in the handle.

The magnetizer works extremely well, when the driver tip and bits are fully charged (magnetized) you can pick up two dozen screws with the end, so no chance of a single screw dropping off while working on your rig.






Here’s the Wiha magnetizer at Amazon, it’s only $5.70, a great investment, looks like they changed the color since I got mine.

Here’s the Wera Tools page, if you love tools these are the best I’ve ever seen. I only have two Wera drivers and some diamond bits but considering a Wera Allen key set, since you guys brought it up.

I’m thinking someone like Seross69 with his amazing rig(s) and workshop, would appreciate this level of craftsmanship.

The 818/4/1 in this video is the driver I got, it's awesome for pc work, pimped it out with 3 diamond gold bits Phillips 1, Phillips 2, and Phillips 3. biggrin.gif

Got this over the weekend at HD... much nicer than the allen key set I had before:




I might have to pick up a magnetizer; I haven't seen one since my IT days.

For those swapping out the faceplate on the XT it takes a bit more pressure than you'd expect because of the glue. It honestly was a bit nerve racking on my 5 XT. I used tiny pieces of double sided tape to stick the new front plate back on, per the advice of AQ.

AquaComputing should have considered more than 50% of buyers would be swapping out the stainless steel faceplate for black, and made is a little easier on all of us.

They also should have included 4 black countersunk M3 screws with the black faceplate, in my humble opinion.

I'd rather have 4matching aesthetically pleasing black countersunk M3s than a package of Gummy Bears, and they probably cost the same. biggrin.gif

Are black countersunk M3s available to buy separately other than in packs of 100 or more?

If only they would've used the same screws for the front of the unit as they did in the back of it.

Also, include the black faceplate with the Aquaero and just charge a couple dollars more.
