I had to mention Tapper because I had no awareness of it before seeing your videos. Last night was the first time I played it. I was shocked at how great the game was. Then I realized If I ever get a chance to buy a tapper I would not think twice about buying it and definitely never sell it.

Tapper is on my must get list.  I've only come across two.  One Beat one for 1k and a nice one for 1500.

john, for flux you should use a flux pen, the paste is old school and only useful for wires not PCB's

I really think every person should learn how to use one of these
http://www.amazon.com/Elenco-Electronics-LP-560-Logic-Probe/dp/B000Z9HAP4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393552396&sr=8-1&keywords=logic+probe

You can fix a lot of dead PCB's with just one of those and a soldering iron.

Ian if you have a board that needs fixing I would and Im sure others would love to see how this tool could be used to save us a little money and fix things ourselves. Please make a video and show us the way.

This is a great thread don't know how I missed this. I will have to admit I have copied most of John's equipment just so I can look at his how to's and be able to know I have the right tools.

Gotta point of advice here, right now if anyone is in the market for a new wire stripper/cutter I just picked up the one John has from Radio Shack today on 4/6/2014 for $15. Normally it's $20.
