had our little Monday meeting this morning. Guess i took the situation off kilter. The reason he "sounded" that way was because he was going threw receipts for monthly billing on some jobs (most our install work takes over a month) His explanation is, our company should purchase any tool you should need because you are using them on our jobs..u may damage them or break them, its the company out of it not you. We can buy u replacement that day. I told him sorry i misunderstood.
I then asked for a digital manometer because the 'dial' type i have sticks and i tend to shoot the liquid out of the other kind. He said go get one. I then ask for a a set of digi-cool about $800..he smiled and says um maybe in a few years
excellent guy to work for..When i was first learning the trade both him and my journeyman both agreed i should learn to work with the fewest passable tools. Now that i can a quire the proper tools it just feels weird asking for them.
