Sparkfun’s new Hack Pack Workshop Supply Kit is ideal for those setting up a new communal shop. With enough gear for five workstations, the kit comes with all the basics for your shared hacker space or electronics classroom.
The kit includes five variable temperature soldering irons plus stands, solder, tinner, cleaner, wicks, and brass sponges. Digital multimeters, wires, strippers, flush cutters, needle nose pliers, hobby knives, screwdriver sets also come in the kit. And, for all your heat gun needs, the Heaterizer XL-3000 is included, too, along with some heat shrink.
And let’s not forget, the most versatile tool of all, Sparkfun’s Third Hand Kit. Everyone should be able to eat a taco while they work. Or hold a PCB steady at a weird angle while they solder. Your call.
