Not being an engineer, I'm very glad someone took the time to assemble these kits.
I've been considering it on and off since I first heard of PIDing, and if finances allow for it, I'll definitely get one.

Can you get by with only a screwdriver?

You might need wire cutters/stripper, I never used a kit though, I just did it all on my own. It's super easy.

Thanks!  The way this kit is put together (and the instructions that come with it) help make it look nice.

Hmm, You need  a 7mm socket (which he'll send you if you need one) needle nose pliers and a screwdriver.  All the wiring is pre-cut to the length you need and stripped on the ends.  Jim has seriously thought this thing through.  We used a laptop computer for the instructional disc so we could have them in front of us.  The disc has detailed pictures and directions.  Check out the main page of his site for all the details.

P.S.  I don't work for Jim, nor am I getting paid by him, I'm just a guy who really loves the product that he's making.

P.S.S.  His customer service is top notch.

 
Everybody needs an addiction.

I'm not addicted to coffee, I just have to have a cup EVERY morning.
