So You Think You Can Tech?

Hello M:R Nation –

Being in this business, we receive a lot of calls from folks that want to try repairing their own devices. These folks are a certain breed that look at a challenge like repairing an iPod touch 4 screen and face it head on. While I can’t lie and tell you that every customer has a success story to tell, I can tell you that we are often surprised by the work some of you are able to complete with a little gumption and youtube.

While our main focus is offering repair services, we also like to oblige to the small percentage of DIY’ers out there. We not only offer replacement parts, but we sell the tools needed to complete the job at hand. Some of our favorite tools are manufactured by WIHA and we use these bad boys on a daily basis!

Today, I want to highlight one of our most used tool sets on the tech line which happens to be the  Wiha 26190 7 Piece Precision Slotted & Phillips Set


This set is a standard for the budding technician. It includes slotted 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0mm and phillips #00, #0, #1 .These sizes of precision tools are a great place to start if you are wanting to create a selection of quality tools that will last you for a life time! Here are a few more tidbits about these drivers:

  • Rotating caps for precise turning and control with fingertip
  •  Precision handles – high quality plastic, cadmium free
  • Molded on tapered handles allow rapid rotation
  • High performance blades – CVM steel, hard chrome finished
  • Tips – precision ground for exact fit, hard chromed non-slip surface

So if you are a DIY’er or know someone that would really benefit from these great tools, you have found a great starting point with this 7 piece set! You can order this right here at Mission Repair and have it in your hands, ready to turn screws in no time!

Edit: Or should I say, “AWESOME EDIT”! This just in, WIHA is offering a great deal until April on this tool set! When you order the 7-Piece set, you will receive a free pair of pliers! See the image of what you will receive below:
