I had several old keyed padlocks from a long ago and decided to try and get them open!.. I'm slowly getting the hang of it, but this lock pick set is definitely the perfect set of tools!!
So far I've been able to get a couple of the locks, but it's a work in progress!
Take your time with the locks. Patience is definitely a virtue with this!

Hi, I'm Joe with the Fixers Collective.
It was my first time working on iPhones. I didn't even own one at the time.
It was a good thing that the weather was cool here in NYC because, when the first person that i helped dropped an internal screw onto the plush rug, I was sweating profusely. Several of us Fixers got on our knees, noses to the rug. It looked like we were grazing. It sounds very funny now, but no one had presence of mind to take a photo at the time. Irving found the screw to everyone's relief and amazement.
It took a whole hour to do that first 5 with several back tracks: the battery connector didn't seat well at first; the case was partially open, but we (owner's boy friend and myself) were ultimately successful.
I saw the benefit of your magnetic mat and several specialized tools.
It might be useful to have the splurgers made of a slightly stronger type of plastic as they have a tendency to distort quickly in use.
Work over the table, have another person at hand to hold down the phone when prying it open and to help keep loose metal parts in place (with a tooth pick) while getting that first screw into the battery connector- at least at first. Watching your videos was indispensable.

My 3 year old AT&T iPhone 4 had a temperamental Home Button and a battery that had lost a lot of its capacity. I decided to replace the two components to extend the life of the iphone until the next generation is released (iPhone 5s? iPhone 6?)
The repair was how-to story of what NOT to do. I took great care during assembly, but I wasn't careful enough. I didn't realize that while trying to separate the screen from the frame, I was pulling against the two ribbon cables. I ended up damaging the longer of the two cables which is responsible for the digitizer function. The damage either occurred during the separation or the re-assembly. Be absolutely sure that the longer cable is fed through all the way and not folded upon itself. Upon re-assembly I had a perfectly functioning Home Button and a new battery but a phone that had no digitizing function...esse
When reinstalling the screen, triple check to make sure that the longer, thinner screen ribbon cable is pulled through fully and not folded onto itself.

The device had been dropped, breaking the display/digitiz
I broke the first digitizer because I hadn't thoroughly cleaned the area where the glass sits. The second attempt was better and I got it together without too much problem.
Make sure the digitizer cable is correctly folded back on itself otherwise it will interfere with the display seating correctly. Use enough stickum on the edges where the display assembly sits. Be very careful and don't force anything.

I lost the keys of a lock, which close my garden's house.
It was a very secure lock that I can't cut (it's a S10 security).
So I try to lockpicking it ! It takes me about one hour to open it because I have absolutely no experience with this tool.
But it works !
It's an addictive tool, be careful ! Once you try, you will try to open other locks or door, just for fun.

My laptop's WiFi card is giving me a headache, so I purchased the WiFi card and realize that I don't have the tools to actually replace it. So I saw that iFixit is having a Black Friday deal, AWESOME! Purchased it and wait for 3 days (international shipment) and the item arrived! After opening the package, directly I replace my WiFi card, as expected from iFixit, all the screws size are there!
I goes flawlessly, no trouble at all thanks to iFixit who provides all the necessary tools and also the guide!
Check the guide and buy the tools from iFixit, trust me, you won't regret!

Macbook Pro logic board died; Apple wanted $600 for a repair, found a replacement on Ebay for $100.
iFixit guide was invaluable. Opened the machine, removed old logic board, removed heat sinks, put everything back together with a new board, all working, everyone happy. The iFixit super-duper screwdriver kit was a joy to use.
Read the repair guides before you start. Get tools from iFixit.
