what's in your box?

26 posts in this topic

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.

no prob, i always have a tendency to see the funny, or things that seem funny to me.

anyway, gettin back ON the topic, the most useful thing i have in my toolbox ismy multimeter. i need to get a new one tho as it is not measuring resistance anymore...

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!!!

Dont have much.. but some of the more interesting things include:

a 3.5 foot long double edged long sword compleat with sceath.. For protection: Current local law states that if its in plain sight its not illegal to wear.

A multimeter.

Assorted electronics partd from old tv's and electronics.

I think I still have it:

A very old homebrew laser sight connected via alicater clips to for auditory output instead of visual... use that for other things sometimes.

misc tools I also use around the house

digital breadboard

"Cyber spy" hearing enhencment tool gotten off of the net for 2 bucks.
