You could try any of the RC shops, but usually I personally find the
local DIY a cheaper source for tools that I use only occasionally.
If the cheap tool out of a cheap kit wears out I buy a decent version
for decent money. For the rest of the kit I don't mind if I never use
it because it was "cheap".
Downside is you need to keep a eye on your tools to see wear before it
damages your nuts and bolts.

Two good places I have found are Micro Mark and Harbor Freight. Both places are located in the US. Both also have websites.

Also, check your local craft-type store and your LHS for small tools. One possible source would be miniature-house supply stores.
Good luck finding what you need.

Check out model train shops. They seem to be very tool-oriented.

smalltools.com isn't the one I was looking for. There is another company with a very similar name and web site that has tons of very small tools...what you're looking for. I'll see if I still have their catalog around here and post their web site.
