Professional Silicone-Tip Solder Sucker
Ever go to a diner and they give you a bottle of ketchup and it says “Extra Fancy” and you’re thinking to yourself “what makes this ketchup ‘extra fancy’ anyhow?” Well, this professional grade solder sucker is “Extra Fancy” and there’s no question as to why. When you hold its machined aluminum body, you’ll think “Fancy!”, the smooth action and release is also “Fancy” and the replacable silicone rubber tip? “Extra Fancy!”

This Japanese upgrade to the classic $5 solder sucker is a joy to use. Since the tip is rubbery soft silicone you don’t have to worry about it melting. You also get a long tube in case it gets clogged or dirty.

IFixit Jimmy – Electronics Opening Knife
The all-mighty Jimmy from IFixIt is the best way out from an iRock and an iHardPlace. Slide, cut, twist, poke, slice, part, uproot, divide, lift, dissect, separate, and pry your devices to check out their insides, void your warranties, and mod your gear.

The Jimmy is a high-quality flexible steel blade that easily slips between the tightest gaps in the toughest devices. Bust through your previously unpenetrable electronics and fix it, or mod it, or open a chop-shop and disassemble it entirely. The ergonomic handle makes it easy to get in there and jimmy those gadgets open!
