Well I just got promoted from a field tech to a tech in a Idian casino that we provide class 3 slot machines, basically a touch screen with a computer running windows xp converted into a casino game. Turns out I need hand tools Ive never really needed then before and I have looked everywere localy, have found nothing tried best buy/circuit city/ and a few more I need these tools by monday and I have found no tool kits so my last resort is buying all the hand tools seperate, I hope radio shack carries them, what should I look to buy as far as screw driver sizes and types? and all other hand tools?

Congratulations on the promotion.

Since you have to have them on Monday I'd say your best bet would be a local computer supply store like Fry's, CompUSA, etc. Radio Shack would probably have a bad selection and even worse prices.

If you can wait I'd just get a good screwdriver and then order a kit online overnight shipping. Even with the shipping it would probably be less expensive.

Yea thats probably my best bet I just dont want to be unprepared on my first day, I heard that all compusa stores in california closed, I think Im going to end up at FRY'S one hour drive for some hand tools here I come.
