Whenever I do that, I clip the van keys to my tool belt. That way I can't leave without my tools.More than once I've taken my pouch, cordless drill, even ladders and a bunch of other tools out of my work van to do something around my house, only to drive to the jobsite Monday morning and leave all my good tools at home.
I do carry a spare set of old tools, but they're dull, rusty and worn out.
That was you?:laughing:I was asked to do a"favor for a friend" job in Cicero.
Street parking in a rather IFFY neighborhood .
I decided to pack one tool bag and take the open pick-up.
My friend had a punch list of odds and ends on a pizza place he had just purchased.
Milwaukee hole shooter,torch and plumbing tools,sheet metal tools ,socket set and any thing else that I could jamb into the one bag.
Fast forward to the end of the day-------Tired, hungry long drive to get home.
Last job was to assemble some work tables,nice pile of cardboard--
Lets see--dumpster way out back and down the alley-3 trips
Empty pick up just outside the door--Great idea!!!
I'll just weight it down with my big tool bag--------
Rush hour on the Eisenhower is slow, I made it to Hillside before I got her up to 50--Yep-- the cardboard launched the tool bag into 6 lanes of rush hour traffic---Hopeless to grab so much as a screwdriver--:laughing::laughing:
