Thin 2-side tape from the arts and crafts store:

Its the perfect size/strength for taping in a battery, comes off clean without residue, flexible, much better than the stuff that is supposedly made for the job.

That is the stuff made for the job, packaged differently.

Weller soldering station with rapid heat-up, internal temp probe, and the price has gone DOWN, now $88.

I always say that everyone should have a Dremel or someting like it.

I have a 12v Proxxon in my hauler bag, a 220v Ferm multi tool in my machine shop and a battery powered Dremel on my hobby bench.
All with enough grinding stones, cutting discs, small drill bit sets (Dremel and Proxxon) and sand paper drums.

I can not think to work without one.

Get 2-3 of these, foldable, lockable stack wire shelves to get some vertical space in your pit. A friend of mine has a little desk light bolted up to one of his, I've also seen hex driver pouches or other interesting things hung up out of the way:

My soldering station, hands down. It still makes me happy every time I use it, although it lives on my bench now that I picked up a cheapo 60w for my pit bag. I think I'm going to try a TS100 next since the temp control on the cheapo is nonexistent.
