Knick-Knacks For Setting up an Electronics Bench
However, I know from long experience in tech matters that there are always some little "knick-knacks" that you always end up needing. For example, in most basic machine repair, you always find you need an assortment of screws, bolts, nuts and washers around if you don't want to have to go to the hardware store twice a day.
So what kind of little fiddling things should I look at getting that the more experienced might have on hand without thinking about. Are there tapes, wires, odd little tools, collections of components etc that are useful but no obvious to novices? Is there something you'd wish you had when you first started?
Heh, I am afraid I don't know exactly what to ask for because I'm asking about things I don't know to ask for.
