Aside from the basics such as multi-bit screwdriver, zip ties, electrical tape, in my toolbox I have: multimeter, PCI video card, various types of ram, PS tester (redundant with multimeter but quick), IDE and SATA to USB adaptor to get data off hard drives, 2.5in 320GB HDD in an enclosure, tweezers, UBCD, and various screws/standoffs/jumpers etc.

Here's my junk tray, that's a 10 year old black and decker electric screwdriver and little plastic containers for screws and standoffs.... I have a multimeter, a bigass bottle of 99% alchy , a magnifying glass and an 18v rechargable flashlight ( go ahead and laugh, the time is coming when you younguns will need a magnifying glass and a flashlight for those front panel headers too!)

My 3.5-2.5 ide adapter and DVI-vga adapters are pretty much invaluable (my workbench rig uses a vga kvm for when I work on older systems)

I got myself a case of strep throat/tonsillitis on boxing day.... Been taking every pill I could get my hands on for the last few days. The antibiotics are starting to work now, I can swallow again!


On the upside I haven't had a smoke in 3 days.

Mines Yellow. Works like a charm, even on those pesky long-to-reach screws, right Sky?

LOL I have a little keychain sized LED flashlight within arms reach that puts out an amazing amount of light. Brightest flashlight I have ever owned. I love it and use it often.But usually because I have the lights down and can't see the i/o ports on the bottom front of my case :)
