Tool Tuesday – Pro’s Kit/Eclipse Tool Kits
If you do any amount of amateur or even professional computer and small electronics repair, you’ll need some good tools to do it with. Even better if you can get these tools on a budget. Pro’s Kit, also known as Eclipse makes great tools that come at an affordable price. Even better, they make some of these in kits that tailored for a specific task taking all of the guesswork out of finding the right tools.
To start with, if you do any repair of Apple products, the Eclipse SD-9326M Apple Products repair kit is the perfect thing. Apple uses a lot of proprietary pieces such as various pentalobe screwdrivers. This set includes many different pentalobe bits to get you into any Apple device. The set also includes tools to help you to carefully pry open the device and pieces to help take components out. Absolutely a great and affordable set for any Apple user. You can see a video of it here.
Another great kit with many practical uses is the Pro’s Kit 500-003 Computer Service Kit. The kit comes with tools that you would expect, like pliers, screwdrivers, tweezers, etc., but also comes with a soldering iron, solder, desoldering pump and a heat sink, all in anice zip-up case. The Pro’s Kit 500-016 Student’s basic tool kit is similar to the Computer Service kit, including screwdrivers, soldering/desoldering equipment, but carries a wider variety of pliers. Either one is a great kit for anyone doing work on PC hardware.
Last but not least, the Pro’s Kit 1PK-1990A Jumbo Tool Kit is aptly named, in that it contains a huge selection of tools. From various types of pliers, socket sets, flashlight, combination wrenches and more. The set also comes in a durable case for easy carrying and convenient storage.
