I'd hate to be in that position.Crap happens and you would think they would have a 2nd set up there just in case.
They don't carry a second set due to payload restrictions. The shuttle burns about 4.3 million pounds of fuel to reach orbit with a max payload of 63,500 pounds (about 67 lbs of fuel per pound of payload). Adding a few pounds of extra tools something will have to left behind. In this case a few pounds makes a big difference.
