After very successfully replacing my 2005 HP iPod Photo battery with an iFixit kit, I just picked up a few items that will help on some of the miniature work that I'm into right now.
My eyes aren't getting any younger so the Head Magnifier, Helping Hands and Inspection scope will keep the details in sight.
The two Gerstner Toolboxes are going to free up some bench space and keep the small stuff organized.
The Flush Wire Cutter is the best there is and will make quick work out of small places.
The images show my 38" diameter digital clock that uses Atomic Clock reference reception of WWVB.
My lighted hands digital clock will need everything from my tool order and more.
The clock uses two Microchip 8-bit controllers - One to advance the current Atomic Time, set time zone and adjust lamp brightness while positioning the two proportional servos to the correct hand positions. This chip also outputs a pulse-train of current time into a second controller chip that acts as a smart port expander that drives the twelve purple hour LEDs which pattern against the current time from a table of time & actions in its memory.
Some of my tools date back to the late 70's so a tool upgrade was sorely needed.
As modern devices get smaller and smaller, the right tools are just what the doctor ordered.

The battery on my macbook pro was broken, så i changed it for a battery from my girlfriends macbook pro because hers had a broken monitor.
The rapair went flawless, with the tools and video from ifixit.
No advice, Im just happy there is a website like this.

My son spilled a glass of water on my wife's 2011 early macbook pro. The keyboard and trackpad no longer behaved properly
The repair took a long time. It was difficult. But in the end it was successful.
Take your time. It is a good idea to have an egg carton or ice tray (or two) to keep screws sorted in the order of the repair step. The hardest part I think was step 17 replacing the keyboard ribbon cable when I was re-assembling everything. What I wound up doing was using tape to grab the ribbon cable to pull it so it would seat properly. Make sure all cables attached to the logic board are available after re-seating the logic board. I had twisted the track pad cable, buried the subwoofer connector, as well as the optical drive. Got them all sorted out eventually.

My camera had bits of dust in it, and I want to clean it out.
It went perfect, the suction cup is designed really and the ring makes it a insanely easy to properly lift off the display.
Take everything one step at a time, and don't rush anything.

I was watching a uTube video when the screen instantly went black, with no fan or hard drive noise. The iMac would not power on. By the symptoms of the failure, I guessed that the power supply had failed.
First of all, I ordered the replacement power supply online from iFixit.com on Monday afternoon and it was delivered by 9:30am on Wednesday morning--amazing. Although I couldn't find a guide to replace the Power Supply in a EMC 2390, the guide for the EMC 2309 worked just fine. I took my time and carefully followed the 10 page downloaded guide. It took about 3 hours including setting up a work bench in a warm place, collecting my tools, and a 1 hour lunch break. My original power supply did not show any visible signs of failure, but when I reassembled the iMac it worked perfectly with the replacement power supply. My guess at power supply failure was correct. Now that I have been through the process once, I could repeat it in 20 to 30 minutes--it's easy. The suction cups worked great to remove the glass over the LED screen. The glass is held on with magnets.
As a retired EE that is accustomed to working with very high reliability electronics (spacecraft), I would like to stress the use of anti-static wrist straps any time you work with electronics that have semiconductors. Electrostatic discharge can wipe out ICs and you may never know it until things don't work. Just clip the wrist strap to the aluminum chassis of the iMac.
