    I think one of my friends has wire and shrink wrap so I didn't include it on the list. I'm also getting a 3d printed chassis so I didn't include it on my list.

    In terms of tools I have a soldering iron, 3d printer helping hands, multimeter.

    Is there anything else that I need or should get before building? Thanks!

    Hey @the_senate ! Welcome to TheTCSSForum! Here's a couple of things that I could think of that you might need...

    1. Resistors for your AV Switch's LED and 5mmRGB LED
    2. A set of Wire Cutters/Strippers... https://www.digikey.com/en/products/...A70057/1850296 (You probably have these if you already have a soldering iron, but I thought it'd be a good reminder)
    3. A Pair (or three) of Magnifying Glasses (3.50 Magnification) ... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IQCO1O4...ing=UTF8&psc=1
    4. A set of Tweezers...
    a. These are O.K. but need tweaking to get the tips perfectly aligned... https://www.digikey.com/en/products/...070001/5488233
    b. These are very nice 316L Stainless Steel, but a bit short overall, and a little pricey... https://www.digikey.com/en/products/...-6-ITU/9664472
    c. Basically the same as the above set, but a different stiffness (I can't tell the difference)... https://www.digikey.com/en/products/...-6-ITU/9664469
    d. Same as 'b' but 304 Stainless Steel and 1/3 the price... https://www.digikey.com/en/products/...-B-ITE/9924689
    e. Same as 'c' but 304 Stainless Steel and 1/3 the price... https://www.digikey.com/en/products/...-B-ITE/9664481
    5. Isopropyl Alcohol and some Q-Tips to clean up your Flux after soldering. (You probably have these if you already have a soldering iron, but I thought it'd be a good reminder)
    6. Battery Charger... https://www.thecustomsabershop.com/L...rgers-C86.aspx
    I have this one, (Xtar VP2) but my battery/batteries is/are removeable... https://www.illumn.com/batteries-cha...v-charger.html

    I hope this helps you a bit! Good Luck on your build!
