Prepare for Repairs with the Ultimate Electronics Field Kit

makezine.com: If you take your electronics projects out into the wild, you’ll pretty quickly want to have a repair kit for the inevitable breakdowns. My personal kit covers almost any kind of electrical or microcontroller project, and while it won’t win any prizes for neatness, it packs a lot of useful stuff into a travel-friendly toolbox.

I really appreciate that this is a guide to assembling one's own "ultimate electronic repair kit" and not a product on sale at make.org as a fully-assembled kit. While I have plenty of respect for the MAKE organization, and I religiously go to my local maker faire, I feel that they are overly fond of foisting unnecessarily expensive and advanced kits to middle-class kids who can't think of anywhere else to put their money except for a shiny micro controller kit. I know, because I was one of them. But the real coup de grace was a computer repair kit I got off of newegg, sold by Rosewill, those cheap bastards. Never have I gotten a package filled with more lies and useless items than that "professional computer respite kit. I am now much more partial to assembling my own materials one by one, so I can ensure their quality. I try to follow the motto of buying cheap, and replacing with quality of it breaks within a year.
