There are a set of wire crimping tools we have for the A-380 that cost something like $30k a pop, and that's just the hand tool not the whole kit. Or the standard RS232 laptop cable used to talk and program first class seats that has been "approved" for aircraft use that cost $1000-$1500 each! And absolutely identical to the $4 one you can buy online.
