Almost never unless itís break time. Been on the same industrial job for 3 years. I have a cart that has almost all the tools I need that I roll around with me.

I used to run back a few dozen times a day.
Now I only need a few tools, but I often forget them anyway, so 3 or 4 maybe

Default The name of the game is saving steps.

Title explains my philosophy after four years in the trade. People have a limited number of steps built into them at birth. My job is to limit giving those steps away for nothing but my own negligence or non-forward thinking. If I am allowed by time constraints, I take the mental time needed to consider everything I will need for the task I'm mulling over. If I have to come down the ladder, or go back to the truck, I count it as a failure of planning.
