I Got a Few Tools that I use, but I need an opinon. I have A pair 9's, Wire Strippers, Interchanable Screwdriver, A kobolt utility knife, A Straight utility knife, A pair Of needle nose Pliars, Tape messure.

I dont Know if it would be easier if I had a Philips and a flat head screw driver, or I should have an interchanable.

My birthday is comeing up soon, and I would Like to buy Some tools, anything I should Add in or take out?


thanks.
Cody

Even though having a 10 in 1 or an 11 in 1 is great you should still carry a full set of regular style screw drivers you never know sometimes the 10 in 1 doesn't have the right size shank and things of that nature.

Get, and I mean get one of those levels with the strong earth magnets. Checkpoint is the brand name . Greenlee makes one though it's smaller and so do klien, I can't tell you how good they are but you can't go wrong with the checkpoint. It's a must.

In my pouch I carry a flat and a 10in1. I use the 10in1 for my phillips primarily. I do also carry a phillips in the truck. Make sure to get a beater screwdriver too. Or else whichever one you have will quickly become one.

It's next to the wire stretcher! I send all new guys in search of 45 degree tek screws, because they know about the wire stretcher gag already. When I did a lot of residential I would send greenies out for 45 degree spikes as well.

Actually DeWalt makes a swivel type 1/4", 5/16", and 3/8" nut runner that go to @40 degrees, very handy for driving tight to a wall or obstruction. They work much smoother than a socket type swivel.
