I respectfully disagree. Get one set of proper tools and MAKE SURE EVERY

Kinda like a surgeon counting his clamps and scalpels before sewing the
patient back up. A lost screwdriver can seriously wreak havoc inside a piece
of electronic equipment.

Servicing hospital equipment taught me to make sure every (labelled) space
in my toolkit is properly filled before switching the serviced equipment
back on.

My experience also tells me it may be more expensive initially to invest in
a quality toolset for every person needing one, in the long run this tends
to be cheaper than sharing a single toolset and replacing damaged/lost
pieces. People tend to take much better care of their "own" tools than a
shared set.

I tried sniffing coke once, but the ice cubes got stuck in my nose.
