The following is a list of Tools and supplies I have found useful when building projects. I have only included those that I have found are better than average. I have given Amazon links, but many are available elsewhere. I have divided them into Essentials and Nice to Have.

I have tried about four different soldering irons and some are more useful than others. My favorite is this one, its relatively cheap and comes with a range of tips, plus other bits and pieces and you can adjust the temperature. The stand is useless and you’ll need a proper one.
This is about the third or fourth wire stripper I have owned. With most of them you can easily cut rather than strip or just shave. This one is self adjusting and solid and works well using the wire preparation method described elsewhere.
