I have posted before about building a pc from scratch or from components from my current pc.
Anyway looking at this website at the moment http://www.buildyourown.org.uk/
On the site this quote interested me.
Collect together the necessary tools nearby, such that they are close to hand. It is advisable at this stage to set up your anti-static precautions.
I have had a look around for anti static equipment and ranges from a wrist band say from maplin at £5 to anti static mats for like £20.
I am curious is it essential in your opinion to have this equipment? Do i need both the mat and the wrist band? And if so other than maplin can anyone give me a general idea where i can purchase these items.
Thanks in advance for any help.
