Wasn't sure where to post this question ...so I'll throw it out here.
I'm a senior tech ( no service manager ) at a medium sized mechanical company and I need to get a handle on tools for the people under me. I have worked for a few companys in my time and have seen one extreme to the other.
Extreme 1 - you want for nothing. Recovery machine down to a control screwdriver is provided by the company.
Extreme 2 - you want it you buy it. Wood structure...time to buy a nice angle drill. Precast ...going to need a nice rotary hammer.
I have to say that I am somewhere in the middle...but I also feel that the company is going to need to provide a tool account to front these guys what they need to have. High dollar drills and recovery machines ( and other 400 dollar plus items ) should be on the company's dime IMO...what do you think ?
