Hello everyone, I bought the rolling bottom piece Milwaukee packout. Currently I am non union and it is awesome for that because I have lots of power/hand tools. But I will be going union very soon (tilt up heavy commercial work)and wonder. Do you guys think it will still be good to haul my hand...
Hi all, I was landing and installing breakers in a panel last week. Everything is fine until I go to torque the bolts and seems like 10-20 % of the square heads strip out before I get them torqued. Is there a better bit I should be using that fits better? Or just torque them with a straight...
I'm off to buy some Ridgid pipe wrenches today and I was thinking: what are some tools you guys keep in the box that might not be "typical" electrical tools but when you need it boy are you glad you have it?
My first day is Monday as an apprentice. However the company I am going to be working for is surprisingly quiet on anything I need to bring. What did some of you need to bring/ know on your first day. Also if I am looking for tools of the trade can some of you recommend some good...
Hey everyone, I joined this forum because it looks like a great way to ask questions when my future journeyman isn't with me. Ha! I also have a few questions about the union apprentice program I'm going into!
I got put on the waiting list out of 100 people who had the interview, I was number...
I am a consultant working on a project in the tool industry. I previously posted here a question about levels and I got very useful responses! So first, thanks for that :)
I wanted to ask you now, how many electricians are there in the US, if you know.
Also, how many levels do you or the...

Hey y'all, intro here; this looks to be a great forum professionally. Hope to receive and eventually contribute some good ideas.
I'm starting this (hopefully long) career in a couple days after 3mo search, just buying tools now. Been doing construction off and on for a couple years now.

I received a shipment of NWS tools, and launched a quick reviews. NWS is an awesome tool brand, full of awesome ideas, not overly accessible everywhere but I imagine that will soon change. Would appreciate any feedback,
First one is The combination pliers, massive focus on...
Hey everybody, I have been rocking the Knipex Installation Pliers for a month, and I got to admit they aren't the gimmick I originally thought. They can do a lot of stuff.
I really rely on these for everyday a work along side a...
As mentioned in one of my other threads here is a quick review on the Knipex Cobolt or mini bolt cutters. This tool makes you want to commit breaking and entering just to see how quickly you can do it! It has the ability to turn anything it touches in butter. Any feedback would be greatly...
I love Klein screwdrivers, but I have been relying on my Wera a lot more. As they are a lot better for the price quality I find. Decided to make a quick video comparing to the two, tell me what you think and which brands...
Why don't Electrical Supply Houses put prices on their hand tool displays like the Big Box Retailers do?
I try to steer all my business to my supply house (builds my account rebate and my relationship if/when I'm in a bind), but they don't put prices on the tools they have on display. The...
