Every Damn time. Have never once done an early day on the last day and it's always on a Friday too.

I am very Anal and OCD. My mind isn't clear and able to get things straight if things are a mess. It looms over my head. I've just disciplined myself to the point that I never return to the van empty handed.

But we all have those 9pm last day of the job days where everything is just thrown in the back and you leave it for another day.

Except he has more than twice what I do.

They are efficient. More than half of those are tool setups that are not Festool tools. It works really well to bring a bunch of them into a client's home on on of the carts and be able to have a large amount of stuff in a small space that is easily moved.

I will get more...

They are the only thing that has kept me somewhat organized on site.

My shop is always in a state of organized chaos.

Here's some shots of the rig I just put together. It's a 7x12 v-nose tandem.

The trailer shows up with the appropriate sheet goods for the job. I try to always keep some ply and sheetrock in stock though.

I have a 6x10 trailer. It is a little crammed, I want to upgrade to a 7x14. I have changed the layout since this pic was taken.

We haven't used that dust pan in months... lol. Not sure why it's on there. It's useful if there's big debris from a demo job I guess.

I just want to know how long it took for everyone to organize their vans, trailers and trucks before they took pictures.

Re: Tool Storage? (Swag Giveaway!)


We wrapped up Friday at 5:30. All I did was unload all the tile stuff (we don't keep that on the trailer) and any other materials or special tools from the job. The guys have learned by now that stuff goes back in it's spot or my wife isn't happy about me spending an hour on Saturday cleaning up after them.

I still mess around in there most weekends and have a list of stuff that needs to happen in there for continuous improvement.

It's not much help to have a trailer that's not organized. That's the point of all this stuff IMO.
