    What is the size of your Computer Tool Kit?
    I'm talking about tools that are only for/can be used on a computer.
    Tools used for other electronic devices that run off computer chips and such count also.

    Gee, I dunno.

    I have a fairly good set of tools because I was a mechanic for years.
    Computers really don't require much in the way of tools, I've found.

    I don't have any specialized diagnostic stuff. If there is such a thing...

    That's sorta what I like about 'em- you don't get dirty and you rarely bleed.

    1 small box of mini screw drivers + and -

    One medium sized + screw driver

    that&#39;s for basic building

    some people are advanced modders.. maybe even Chip makers. (start with a breadboard.. then get it produced into a silicon chip)

    An Antistatic Rist strap isnt needed, but it saves you &#036;100s of dollars in damage.
    Wire Snippers/Strippers, Sodering, etc

    Anyone here heard of Yoshi from The Screen Savers? did you see his room on that one episode about his living area? Man, that&#39;s an example of Godlike. he had probably over a 1,000 tools all use for his computer mods.

    1. Take the fuse out of a power cable
    2. plug it into the PSU of your computer
    3. grip your PSU with both hands periodically as you work inside the case
    Works for me - you&#39;re grounded each time you touch the case and without the fuse, no power can get through to the case.


    The only equipment I use is a screwdriver, a pair of fine pliers (for twisting parts off cases or getting at slippery jumpers), and my fuseless power cable (I keep one around - it saves time).

    Then again, I&#39;m not a modder - I&#39;m happy with my components just the way they are.

    but what about other power sources.. such as the Powered Cable TV cables from outside. With this rist strap+Copper pipe connection outside.. They dont even shock me even if i touch the pin and input at the same time.
