alcohol wipes (sub in 90% iso alcohol and coffee filters)
paper towels
your favorite booze
needlenose pliers

Thats pretty much the extent of what i have ever needed, and i take my machine apart quite often.
Duct tape fixes everything eh?

Most i've used is:

Philips screwdriver
needle nose pliers
bottle of isopropyl alcohol
coffee filters
Canned air.

edit: w00t! over 1000 posts ^_^.

I use the duct tape to tape the heatsink screws to the screwdriver so i cant attach the TRUE without removing the motherboard.
