The 'Tinker' model of Swiss Army Knife has just about anything required,
A few times at work I've taken it as a personal challange (translate:
getting paid to fiddle around) to build an entire test fixture using
just the swiss army knife. It can drill holes for the screws, turn the
screws in, etc. That's for 'breadboard' grade fixtures that just use
plywood for the base, terminal strips, etc.
Sometimes minimalism is fun. For awhile.
