    Hi Everyone,

    Wondering if anyone has advice on which tool kit to get? Its a full package with pliers, cutters, etc. Any feedback would be helpful!

    Thanks,

    I have Hilco and it seem to work pretty well for my 2 courses' labs that we used it in. I did use it to trim my temples from a pair of sunglasses and it also seemed to work pretty well then.

    I think in the long run it doesn't matter.

    Buy the minimum required, or better yet, just borrow.
    After school, you'll either enter a situation that already has these tools or at least buying them will have some tax advantages.

    We have Hilco and they seem really nice, but I don't know anything about the others.
