Version 9
    Tool Giveaway for Folks Getting Started in Electronics

    element14 Presents  |  Engineers and Makers Wish List |  Workbench Wednesdays

     

     

    James has entire kit of must-have tools to get circuits built.  These products are all great gift ideas for the engineer (or electronic hobbist) who's just getting started since it includes the things you need to start building circuits; from a breadboard and jumper wires to a nifty assembly turntable.  It's also a great kit for updating the tools on a veteran EE's workbench.  The pliers included are the best you can get from German manufacturer Knipex.  You'll get a set of 11 different precision pliers, nippers and cutters that feel great in the hand and are lighter and thinner than what they're currently using (unless they already own Knipex).

    See James' more detailed overview of the Knipex pliers in this giveaway.

    THREE chance to win! Three kits of all the parts listed below will be awarded to the element14 member that tells us (in the comments below) the WORST tool to use for an electronics-related task.  This could be based on your personal experience or something that "happened to a friend."  Pictures of disastrous results will give your submission a boost.
