    Tools for what? Basic airsoft teching? I don't have links, but here's a good list of tools to be used for teching an airsoft gun:

    Screwdrivers of different sizes and types (Flathead, Phillips)
    Dremel
    Xacto knife
    Wire cutters/insulation stripper
    tapemeasure/digital caliper
    soldering iron
    metal file (Like for rounding cylinder windows)
    Multimeter (for testing electrical current)
    vice (for holding things in place)

    30 or 40 Watt Soldering Iron with "Chisel" or "Screwdriver" Tip
    60/40 Rosin Core Solder
    Long philips head screwdriver
    A small screwdriver set with allen bits, torx bits, flat-head tips, philips head tips, etc.
    A decent vice grip
    A DREMEL!! I got the cheapest one speed dremel and that works fine (make sure you have attachments for it)
    #14 O-Rings
    Needle Nosed Pliers
    Other forms of pliers
    A drill and a nice set of drill-bits
    A nice, well-lit, work bench
    A File
    Some sharp knives

    I just came up with this in about 5 minutes, but that should just about cover it for tools

    Make sure that screwdrivers are magnetic, so much easier when screwing on motor grips.

    Also get a nice set of Torx and Allen screwdriver sets. And a pair of "opposed" tweezers(don't know exact name, can hold objects without you putting pressure on it), A nice desklamp.

    Also a set of pucnches would be nice.

    You'll actually collect the stuff you need by multiple trips. You'll think you have everything, then something will arise that will enevitably require a trip to Lowes to buy a new tool. That's how I amassed my collection, That list barely scratches the surface. But for starters, with about half the list I posted, you can do pretty much anything. Though I did forget to add Teflon tape to that list.
