Advice from an Apple Tech: The right tools for the job

Chris Barylick | Feb. 13, 2014
When you want to perform your own Mac hardware repairs, it helps to have the proper tools. Here's what you should have in your toolbox.

You may know of a better price and model, but I was able to find a useful Wagner Digital Heat Gun for about $40 at Home Depot that offered several temperature settings (including a maximum setting of 1350 Fahrenheit), so the tool can become just that much more handy around the house. Take your time, be careful and you might be able to pull off some terrific Mac fixes with this high temperature tool.

That's it for now and if you guys have any advice or suggestions as to better tools, better prices or killer jury-rigged fixes to try, please let us know in the comments section below. Until then, I'll be trying to perfect my heat gun technique without singing anything too badly or setting anything on fire. It's important to have goals.
