What are some basic tools for a workshop?? Links please.
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)
Wire cutters/insulation stripper
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)
Needle Nosed Pliers
Other forms of pliers
A drill and a nice set of drill-bits
A nice, well-lit, work bench
Some sharp knives
I just came up with this in about 5 minutes, but that should just about cover it for tools
Yes for teching. That's great thanks.
Thanks for that list I got like screwdrivers and stuff but didn't know what else.
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.
Here's the stuff I have:
1: dremel and metal working attachments. Cut off wheels, grinders, polishing bits.
2: handheld flat metal file.
3: rat tail file.
4: Medical hemostats. Both curved and straight.
5: tac hammer.
6: needlenose pliers.
7: linemans pliers.
8: micro butane torch
9: large propane benzomatic
10: low watt electronics soldering iron. (I'm a weller fan myself)
11: high watt soldering gun.
12: different core solders.
13: duct tape
14: super glue
15: JB weld
18: small cordless driver (I'm partial to hitachi.)
19: Phillips and flathead bits, and an extra long Phillips bit.
20: torx bits
21: metal speedlock drill bits.
23: heat shrinks
24: zip ties
25: small lighter
27: metal punch
28: bushing seater
29: allen wrench set (metric and international)
30: socket set.
Sounds good thanks. Got to start making a list.
Wow lots of stuff thanks!
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.
Okay sweet sounds good
One more thing I don't think was mentioned:
Electrical Tape! (many, many uses).
K sounds good. Will add to my list.
Pipe cutter is handy as well. One of the cheap twisty kind.
K I'll look at that. Thanks
