Here you will find all of the essentials you need to outfit your electronics workshop. This category has a little bit of everything. Many of the products here, like the helping hands and PCB holders, or the silicone rework mat are used daily here at Adafruit HQ.

If you are brand new to electronics, we also carry Ladyada's Electronics Tookit, which is a set of the most important electronics tools to get you started. All of them hand-picked by Ladyada herself.
