I've yet to have an employee bring me a "worn out" tool for replacement. Now, broken tools....that's a different story.
They lose them, before they're worn out....or I find them worn out/rusted out when I clean out their trucks after termination, or while on vacation.
If you lose a tool.....no...."Daddy John" ain't gonna buy you a new one.
Bring me a legitimately worn out tool, and I'll replace it....but it doesn't happen.
For you guys who expect employers to provide everything.....do you have any friends who are auto mechanics ? Ask them about tools to do their jobs.....
