    your most used tool??

    What is that one tool you carry with you to every service call that you just cant live with out???

    other than the standard, long 5/16 and, electrical meeter, and yada yada,

    I'm looking for the kind of tool that you did not know you needed until you had it.
    I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it.

    What I don't Know Far out weighs what I do.

    The one thing I see a lot of guys trying to get by without and using it would make life much easier. A well lit working area.

    I use a 150 watt coiled Fluorescent bulb in a reflector lamp w/ guard and ext.cord with LED in the plug.

    Works in the cold and withstands abuse.

    Lately in ceilings and such an extending mirror has come in handy.

    For service calls it's a voltage tester. It's nice having the piece of mind that comes from knowing for certain that the circuit you're working on is dead.

    For installs it's an extra battery pack. One in the drill (or saw), one in the light and one in the charger at all times.
