specific tools can be found in an electrical parts company.
(all of the ones that i have been in have electrical, video, audio,
radio, cabling, etc. parts.)
surely, you will find several of these businesses locally.
i prefer to purchase tools from these places because the electrical
parts tools because there are some features not usually found on the
tools at Home Depot, Lowe's, Radio Shack, Ace, etc.

Subject: [rescue] Tool kits?

I want to spend some of the boss's money on a toolkit for the Data
Center, since I use my LeatherMan waaaay too often. (Sure it's handy,
but the place just needs to have some basic tools.) Does anyone have
   Most of the stuff I see on the web is injection-molded plastic
crapola, a la the Belkin kits for $29, but what I really want & need is
a reasonable selection of well-made tools in a case. Any suggestions of
brands, pro or con? (For example, the "Technician's Tool Kit" (part
FT812) from Black Box.)
   If I can't buy a good one, I'll just go nutty at a hardware store.
Does anyone have favorite tools that they are missing from the following
	- Screwdrivers (phillips, hex, torx...?)
	- Needle-nose pliers
	- Wire cutter/stripper
	- Small sockets
	- Hex wrenches
	- Adjustable wrench [for rack feet]
	- Crimper for RJ45 & RJ11 (plus jacks!)
	-A whole mess o' Rip-Tite velcro cable ties
   Thanks for any suggestions.
