Default 130 Piece PC Tool Kit $36.99 w/ Free Shipping from Tiger Direct via Ebay

Tiger Direct is selling their 130 Piece PC Tool Kit for $36.99 on ebay w/ free shipping:

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Ultra-130-Pi...ht_4273wt_1091

You may be able to combine this w/ bing cash back (usually 8-10%). Popular search terms that yield ebay bing links include: 'wii', 'xbox', and 'sony' (FYI: I have only gotten bing cash back links to show up using IE)

I can't vouch for the quality of these tools personally because I don't use them; however, there are some essentials contained and it should be a good start for new freelance techs. Here is a link to tiger direct's page which may be more informative than the auction: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...20piece%20tool

Nice starter kit. Has everything you might need 99% of the time. Although I hate the fact that they count the screws, carrying case and socket holders a "piece"

Looks pretty good to me and I'd buy it if I needed it...although I already have my three kits are pretty full. Soldering, Computer Repair and Home Theater...I need to build a networking kit soon though.

Wow, counting the screws, carrying case and socket holders is pretty low! I didn't catch that myself.

I hate these toolkits. Since when did a PC tech need open end wrenches for anything? How many nuts and bolts have you ever run into inside a PC?

I rarely carry more than a #2 screwdriver from Ames tool company into a job. Maybe a set of cutters if it's a power supply replacement

LOL. Of all the tools I have I use my $4 6-in-1 screwdriver the most. It has 2 Phillips, 2 Slotted, & 2 Nut Drivers.

I bought one of these back in 03 for 19.99. Alright I guess. Solder gun is useless. Pliers and cutters are cheap. Other than that not bad.

Not a bad set, I'm not too fond of the screwdrivers they usually include in sets like that though. I got myself a good set of screwdrivers from lowes.

I bought this one from Cyberguys. It was worth the money, I use it a lot.
