    Question Starting my first portable

    I've ordered 2 wii systems off ebay to work on. I'm a complete beginner. What tools do I need? I've already got a dremel. Is there a thread on affordable, quality tools I'll need? Also when I start cutting up motherboards how do I start a work log thread?

    Tools please!

    I am building an Ashida portable and I don't know what tools and extra parts not listed on 4 layer tech to buy. Please recommend things to remove soldering as well as a soldering iron and other important tools/pieces.

    Question PS2 controller mod input issues

    Hello! I've never posted here before, and I've also never used a soldering iron before either, so there's a good chance that the solution to this is very simple - however, a brief search didn't help, so I thought I would ask here. Basically, I'm currently converting a regular (third party) PS2...

    Question What are the Necessary wires needed for building a portable?

    I posted a question like this about The Ashida Portable so I figured it would be better to ask here. So what kind of wires would a beginner need for soldering things like the battery contacts, the speakers etc.
