I'd like to see what you have added to your smithing tools. Here is my inventory.

$20 punch set (brass and nylon)
$20 gun screwdriver set
$15 small needle file set
$30 calipers

Assoreted files and general tools. Plus emery cloth in varrious grits

I've seen guns work on $400 guns with nails as punches. A few dollars for basic tools are a wise investment.

What else would you suggest?

I was attempting to clean my PT145 last night and was in need of a punch set. Admittably, as a newb to the taking care of your own gun crowd, I was in need of some punches.

This will soon be a purchase for me as well as a small screwdriver set.

Do you have a vise? The ability to work on your gun and know it won't go flying across the table is nice.

Yes on the vice, but needs to have the padded inserts so as to not scratch the gun
