For real????? Where do you work? Do YOU own the tools, or the company.
Those are your tools. Maybe the company provided you with them, but they surely will be your responsibility if you lose, break, or blow them up? I provide all 1st year apprentice with a basic set of hand tools, but the other trades on the job know enough to ask to use someone's tools.
for real..

tools are company owned.

over 30yrs of electrical work i've always been told that my everyday tools
were my responsibility. They help keep me alive by seeing to their proper use and care.

i am the only electrician and need the literal language to keep the monkeys away.

yes, my username is my alaska hamradio callsign

type it in a search engine..

i work at denali national park just south of healy ak..

fantastic job, but these folk tell me that my elec license means nothing to them. gov't yaknow.. can do whatever. so im looking for concrete info
that says an elec tools are not for the untrained. grease makes a nice conductor in a 480 panel.

Very good Mac. I am also a ham.
