Where can I find a good quality PC Tool Kit or Kits?<br />
I am tired of not haveing the proper tools to tinker around on my computers.<br />
<br />
I want something that will last years, not some chinky set that the tools<br />
wear out in just a few uses. Has the required tools to build a PC, cut and resplice wires / reattatch connectors, soldering iron, heat gun, ect. ect.<br />
Testing tools a plus.

Just put one together yourself , of high quality tools. Thats what i did. <br />
Then you more or less have a custom tool kit for your pc.

</div>I checked this out thanks, I also looked at the 70 peice kit which seems to be the same with a few extra items. The reviews for the 70 peice kit do state some poor quality items though.

Ok after searching around only thing I could come up with is this<br />
<a href="http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat%5Fid=1406&sku=27372" target="_blank">Cables To Go, Workstation Repair Kit</a><br />
How would this compare to <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16899888203" target="_blank">70pc Belkin</a>

That kit looks really good! Personally though, I would get the Belkin, since it is about half as expensive, but if I had the money, the Cables to Go kit is the most complete I have seen.

Anything Craftsman is great. But I don't think they make a PC kit...

Sears Craftsman Tools.. lifetime warrenty.. They might not sell a pc kit, but im sure you can put one together from what they have in the store. If not they can order them. This way you will have alot higher quality tools than with some kit you bought. The only thing i dont see Sears carrying is maybe a network cable crimping tool.

Actually I've taken apart a server with a little metal PCI slot cover. MacGuyver can't touch this.

Well of late I have been useing anything I can get ahold of, but I am<br>
getting tired of replacing screws ect due to improper tools being used<br>
and causing damage.<br><br>
But I do agree at times a good ol brew is the best tool around.
