One of those "Cold-Heat" soldering irons could be handy also.

Old used CNC machines dont cost that much

And welders are cheap, hell you can use a propane blowtorch with those rods...

Why would any body buy a CNC when you can just go to a shop and get it done for you,And i know welder's are cheap but 99.9999% of normal people will never ever use one for modding.
