Which iFixit Tool-set? What alternative?

Subject: Which iFixit Tool-set? What alternative?

I recently tried to replace my Mac mini 2014 HDD to an SSD…. the problem was that I did not have a Torx 5 bit…. I thought I would invest in a somewhat comprehensive set like the Pro Tech Toolkit or Manta kit…. I guess one downside is that the bit swap concept is more bulky and more cumbersome than dedicated tools for each bit… I think I like the case for the Pro Tech better…. I think Manta as some longer bits that are useful….. Also, I wonder if there is a reputable alternative to the iFixit Chinese tools…. any thoughts?

Oh, I just broke the screen on my iPhone 6s….. so I might need some tools for that.

Each guide offers a listing of the needed tools for the given task. Review them to help understand what you’ll need.

Someone who is a weekend fixer will likely find the Pro Tech Toolkit is a good choice as it will cover a good 90% of what you’ll need for small device repairs.

A person who focuses on fixing MacBook system will often get discreet handle drivers as they are constantly using the same tool over and over again.

I personally have both the iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit so when I travel I have what I need. When I’m home I often use my fixed handle drivers similar to the iFixit Marlin Screwdriver Set - 15 Precision Screwdrivers

Your use case can be different from me! So you need to figure it out what works for you.
