heat gun shrink tube (nice not necessary) electrical tape ...and a good idea or two is helpful

What are you planning to make? Or is this a general list? If it's general, you need general tools - hammer, nails, saws (including hacksaws) files, rasps, big lumpy screwdrivers, screws, glue-gun, drill, dremel, etc.

In adition: Solder (duh) helping hands or a PCB clamp resistors for the LEDs springs arn't used that much you just need one good cheap small philups head and a flat head for prying instead of batteries you can just use wallwarts for most projects, as they don't need batteries. ummmm.. something important but I just forgot, ha

Nup, looks like their all there. Sorry I can't find what we are talking about.
