Studio Maintenance Tool Box...??

I am looking to put together a simple, logical, and useful set of tools for general maintenence for any studio, whether it be digital or analog. For starters; one would have a properly sized set of Phillips head srew drivers for racks, several clean paint brushes to remove dust, a soldering iron, contact cleaner, canned air, alcohol, Q-tip swabs...etc.

I sure would love to hear other suggestions for a properly maintained tool kit.

Thank you

The Shark vaccuum would be a good tool for the studio. And a cable tester.

A nice DMM (Fluke or similar), test tone generator, oscilloscope, a small box with multiple resistors in it that lets you switch between them easily, needle nose pliers, wire strippers...and I'll think of more and get back to you.

A dual trace scope, Fluke 8020 meter, a laptop and an Audio Precision analyzer.

That 'll do it.

A small range of Electrolude products. EML and Fluxklene come to mind.

One of those headbands with a super bright led light they sell at outdoor lifestyle stores....and a welder's mirror (looks like a big version of the dentist's mirror), great for peeking behind a console

A labeling machine like a Brother P-touch.
