Luckily, I always had my dad to help me if that happened. I still need to get his help at times if I get in over my head with something extremely complicated (very small devices are usually a challenge). He has every tool you'd ever need to put complex things back together. I'm still glad to know that I'm actually better at putting things back together than I was when I was a kid.
That's awesome! I find myself buying tools all the time for different reasons. Not only is electrical engineering a hobby of mine but I also dabble in metal working and wood working. I'm always buying something, I don't understand why the tool truck doesn't just come by my house.
