    righty.. basic tool kit... you need.. a short philips... a long phillips... maybe a stubby too.. a small flat-blade and a medium-ish one... a pair of long nose pliers... a pair of forceps/fine grips... a torch... soldering iron & solder.. solder sucker...


    with that lot, you can fix everything. A useful addition is a magnetic pick-up tool as well.. handy for getting dropped screws and stuff.

    you'll probably get it cheaper that way, buying separate, rather than getting a kit ready built that'll have a lot of stuff in it you'll never need/use

    If your a mechanic - get snapon tools, if your a computer bod, get any old toolset.

    Get a small reversible electric screwriver too - daves the wrist.

    Belkin (iirc), do a fairly good range for PC builders.
    Not really for mechanic's, so for PC builders only, but they have everything you could ever need, of a good quality.
