Great , I have a few sets of these. I needed a good set when I was stripping one of my Traxxas Emaxx Unlimited engineering chassis. Every screw was stuck and it took me a good while to sort.

ive lived without a locking plyers (forgot their actual name) but its really handy having one. same thing goes with this, not sure the proper name other than wire stripper/cutter/crimper/multitool, i inherited this wire stripper.jpgI inherited this from my grandfather, he was definitely the kind of guy to buy something like this instead of using just a knife or scissors. he was a very cool guy (y) he loved the proper tool for the job

Ball head Allen bits. Good soldering iron I have a 90 watt Weller station. don't know how I'd live without it. But there are good cheaper options. Oh and a 45* and 90* needle nose pliers or forceps. I have both I prefer the pliers but the forceps locking feature is nice.
