    That's an awesome little tool. I think I'll practice with a good old fashioned one, but I may graduate to that.

    A good SAE/Metric Hand Tap & Die Set will allow you to thread and repair stripped screw holes. For PC Modding & Repairs, I suggest purchasing a set that has tap sizes for 6/32 and 4/40 screws.



    60 piece set for $39.99 on Harbor Freight

    Step drill bits!

    I've used these to make holes in sheet metal, aluminum, LEXAN sheets, These are a lot better than traditional twist drills. You should use some type of cutting oil (or WD40) when drilling though thick/hard metals to help the bit cut and lengthen its life.

    I had to read up on those bits. It sounds like they are what's known as a unibit so they may be sold under that name or sometimes step.

    A Micrometer is widely used for precise measurement of small distances. I use a Micrometer to measure the thickness in materials like sheet metal or aluminum. You can also use a Micrometer to measure the diameter of a cylindrical shape or sphere.

    Types of Micrometers:

    Outside micrometer, (aka micrometer caliper), typically used to measure wires, spheres, shafts and blocks[B]

    Inside micrometer, used to measure the diameter of holes

    Depth micrometer, measures depths of slots and steps.



    This is a Starret T436XRL-9 Outside Micrometer from Amazon



    This is a Metric "Caliper" style micrometer made by “Draper.” It’s manufactured from hardened stainless steel. Slider displacements are amplified by a rack and pinion mechanism and indicated on the dial. Four way measurement: internal, external, depth and step. Reading 0.02mm. Slider has lockscrew function. Display packed in plastic storage case.

    Greenlee part # 730EBB-120 Last time I inquired, they were around $450 in the states + Large 3/4" socket wrench, and 2" socket. I wouldn't use anything less than 19" long socket wrench. Estimated purchase price of $550 new.

    Avoid fraying your PSU cable sleeving ends by using a Heat Cutter for cable sleeving.

    This would be nice to own. CNC Shark Pro Plus Router, sold for $3,599.99 by ROCKLER



    You can use the CNC Shark for carving, cutting, engraving, and etching hard materials that include, aluminum, MDF, wood, pvc, plexiglass, acrylic, and plastic.

    You must supply a PC computer with USB 2.0 port and a Bosch Colt router (router sold separately). Simply connect the USB cable to the controller box and the other end to your computer (not compatible with Mac computers). The CNC Shark work table measures 28-1/2” wide by 36” long. The router itself can be moved over a 25” x 25” work path centered on the table. With its open end design work pieces longer than 36” can be placed into the machine, and continuous machining is possible with careful indexing of the workpiece. The table is much improved over the original Shark and Shark Pro in that its made of a blue anodized extruded aluminum channel which allows for great flexibility in clamping down workpieces. CNC Shark does include Vectrix CAM and 3D design software, but you'll want better graphics package like CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator to create advanced artwork.
