It's great item to have to move your equipment easily thank you so much.
Holds all my specific soldering and small SMT tools I need when I'm in the field. Great kit. Highly recommend.
I was very impressed with the quality of the wire strippers, the flush cutters, the hobby knife, and the curved tweezers. The solder vacuum seems nice, but I haven't tried it yet. The screwdriver and pliers are very cheaply made, but they work. The straight cross-lock tweezers didn't close all the way, and don't have a super fine tip, but after some bending and filing they basically work. Kind of interesting mix of quality, but a good value.
