I’ve amassed a decent collection of tools since I started working in electronics – some useful & some that seemed useful at the time of acquisition. Not surprisingly, it’s the basic electronics tools that prove indispensable – and the above video gives you my take on what those are exactly. Here’s hoping it helps get a few newcomers properly geared up – and maybe put a smile on the face of a few seasoned solderers.
Oh and do drop a line in the comments listing any vital items/glaring omissions. (Note: I classify multimeters as “test instruments,” not tools, just so ya know)
