    VETO TP3 OR MB

    I have the veto lc that I love and the xl that i've had for 2 or 3 years and still has the tags was just a lill big for my liking. With that being said im look'n for a small diagnostic bag to get me started and hopefully finished with the call without pulling out my 50 lb lc bag. Leaning towards the tp3

    Not much room in the MB but it zips up
    If I was going to get one for hand tools it would be the TP3

    Right. I figure everyone who's interested in these two bags just wants a quick diagnostic bag. What do I need...I'm thinking a meter, 6 in 1, two adjustables, channelocks, dykes or wire strippers, jumpers, electric tape, teflon, maybe and infrared thermometer.. I like that the mb zips, but i dont know if i could have my channies and wrenches. I can't seem to find either on line though.

    i got myself the tp3 bag. i like it its very useful. the only problem i have with it is that i need to carry some sort of small box with me for the bits and electrical misc stuff. connectors and such. other then that its good. but now i have myself a little case that i bought from lowes that i am able to carry those small stuff in.

    Hey I will take that xl off your hands. Just ship it to New Jersey. Better yet I think you should invite me to Maui to pick it up. lol. What is the weather like year round there. Whats it like being a working man in Maui when everybody is there on vacation. Looking at all them bikinis. Stay thirsty my friend.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    I carry both MB and tp3. MB is a good meter bag, but not much room for any tools with meter. Still both bags are alot lighter than my fully loaded LC for troubleshooting.

    not sure if u have lowes in your area but i went to lowes and i found myself a neat pouch. almost like a pencil case but for tools. its rigid and it works well. there is 3 different sizes

    blue(small) carries my marrets and electrical accessories yellow(medium) carries my screws and nuts and black (large) carries my drill bits and they all have place where you can slide a belt thru them on the back and i keep my little bits and accessories in them. its made by AWP hopefully my pic show here.

    they are now on my lc hvac bag. but its easy to tranfer them over to my tp3 bag. i do also have a little parts box, but i only go into that when i need other stuff. kinda handy for sure.

    not sure if im the only one that does this. but i tend to walk into a local hardware store and see their tool section especially In canada we call it Home Hardware. they are a company that tends to invent stuff that is convient. so i go by every so often to see if any new products came in like for example. a few years a go i picked up myself a mini power drill i didnt realize these even exsisted. but i call it my baby. good for small resi jobs putting in a inducer motor and stuff like that. very lite. the people there know me quite well. (-: kinda funny. buying mini pliers and screw drivers and thinking of how this can be useful. some of these tools are useless but some are very handy. thats where i found these little pouches and i think i hit gold with this one. great things to discover when wasting time in a hardware store :smile:
