    I don't really want to say where I work, or what area I'm for that matter, parnoid that way, with the current economy.

    I have worked for the last two to three years testing customized commerical, and light industrial packaged units, split systems, and some water to water 410a chillers. Most of our units run from 3ton to 40ton units. I have learned alot working here, but I want to learn more and don't have the funds for schooling, and well I messed up any chance of fianacing it to. I also have a background in comp sci, its what I messed up my fianancing options on, and find controls interesting. Wow, just relized I had put in alot of time with this company. Before I moved into testing spent about nine years wiring control panels and units.

    I think most self-respecting techs own their own drills, saws, gauge manifolds, torch set, scale, leak detector(s), meters, thermometers, etc. in addition to the standard hand tools. Vacuum pump could go either way. Recovery machine & cylinders usually not. Your tools are an investment in your ability to do your job without being dependent on someone else. I would have a hard time taking someone seriously as a professional if they did not make this investment in themself.

    Just for illustration purposes, here's what I roll with every day. Can handle most service calls with just what's on the table there.
    You get to put your tools on your kitchen table? I'd be dead if I did that!!!!!!!

    She didn't know until she saw the picture online. It is better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission! (This logic does NOT apply to all areas of any relationship) LOL

    Mrs. Tech Rob just told me today "So I saw all of your tools on the table in the picture, HMMMMMMM.....". Lucky for me, today is our 5 year anniversary and I sent her a bunch of roses and some chocolate covered strawberries, which just happened to arrive about the same time.

    Ask Supertek65 for a copy of his personal tool list. That is what you need.

    I would just be happy with a priority order. What expensive tool to save up for first.
