AmazonBasics Digital Optical Audio Toslink Cable 6&hellip by AmazonBasics
Audiophillia is full of snake oil salesmen, but nothing tops the overblown fuss some retailers manage to make over fiber optic cables. Here's the secret: a TOSLINK is a TOSLINK.

Stanley 090950 300mm MaxSteel Adjustable Wrench by Stanley
5.0 out of 5 stars Huge, sturdy, 10 May 2014

Measure out the length of it to get a proper idea: it's very hefty and easily handles (for example) the rear wheel axle nut on a motorbike. It's strong and wide enough for just about anything you'd be able to undo by hand and the filed sides - to make it slimmer and less obstructive - are a useful touch. Buy two of them and you'll never have to buy an adjustable spanner again.
