Ask the Readers: Must Have Tools For Your Geek Toolbox?

By Jason Fitzpatrick on May 9th, 2012

While we’ve asked you about the software you keep in your virtual toolbox, this week we’re interested in the actual hardware. What must have tools have you tucked away inside your geek toolbox?

A USB drive full of trouble shooting tools is awesome, but there’s still a time and place for real world tools that make running cable, cracking open cases, and retrieving parts that go missing in the bowels of machines, an easy task. This week we want to hear all about the tools you’ve tucked away in your toolbox specifically for your adventures in fixing, tweaking, and deploying technology.

Sound off in the comments and then check back on Friday for the What You Said roundup.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
