Mclark,
You can’t go wrong with K&D staking sets. Their quality is excellant and spare and/or replacement stakes and stumps are available from Uncle Larry’s and other used watch tool suppliers. Check out REDROOSTERUK on Ebay for some other tools you will need. Their STELLA brand tweezers are excellant and inexpensive. Harbor Freight has a few tools that are pretty good and also some junk. Their crystal press is very good and goes for about $14.00. They also carry a couple models of ultrasonic cleaners. I use powerful drugstore reading glasses instead of a loupe for general work but most people stay with the loupe. Bausch & Lomb loupes are affordable and very good. There are some extremely expensive Swiss loupes for sale but I do not feel they are worth the cost.
