Every one of us has a toolbox that we keep our odds and ends in. Here's where you post what's in yours. Maybe you have something thats uber-t-rad that the rest of us have never considered. Be proud of your gear, and share those contents!

Things "out of the ordinary" in my box:

1: Allen wrench set that have been modded via drill press to have holes in them to accept those propritary ones

2: processor wrench (more like a crowbar with teeth)

3: SHITLOADS of rg-6

rg-6?
is that some new type of ultra strong whitening toothpaste?

i don't have anything really out of the ordinary in my kit, just assorted wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, strippers, the pop rivet gun sounds like a nifty idea.

allways remember to carry a spare set of strippers around, you never know when you'll need a little t n' a :lol:

Well, I've got a rather cool exact-o knife. I cant find my strippers, so I have been stripping with an exact-o knife lately.

Dont take that the wrong way, by the way.

I like my hot glue gun. I've never used it for anything useful, but I like watching the glue come out...

It was meant to sound stupid...ya know, humor? I guess that sarcasm never really translates to a computer screen. But as for sounding queerish, that's all a matter of perception. Things are only as sick as you see them, no flame intented, bro.

Is that a digital multimeter? I know they look cool, but i've found that they're not as accurate...you know, margin of error.

Those digital ones do look really 'l33t. I was tempted to buy one last time I was at the rat shack, but the analog ones are more accurate, and they cost less money.

yeah, i am planning to buy a whole set of new cooling components (heatsink, fans, temp probes...) from that site, so i am saving money to buy them all at once so i can save on shipping, thats when im getting this thing too. Man, i really think shipping costs suck, for real, wouldn't it be great if there were no real shipping costs. there actually are no sites that dont charge shipping. if there's "free" shipping then the product costs more than on a site with shipping charges, so its the same. it pisses me off!!!
