Not a soldering gun. Soldering guns make semiconductors cry tears of melted plastic.
Hot glue doesn't count. I've seen it. No joke.
Not required if you don't think you're going to make mistakes.
Small flat-headed screwdriver
To tighten the screws on the terminal strip.
These are those funky things that hold stuff while you're soldering. These are useful for way more than electronics.
Solid core wire
You need this to create the traces. It must be solid core!
