I know a lot of the guys on here are the owners. Of course you own the tools.
This is for the owners:
Do you have that one tech that provides is own tools? How do you care for that tool which is providing you service?
To the techs:
Where are your tools?
I have a great love of tools as all here should. I enjoy using my tools to do the company's job. I provided the tool, when it brakes doing your work...replace or repair it. That is how I feel...AND I hold the same back to the employee using the company tool, or should I say misusing. If you break the tool replace or repair.
In reality it is the company that normally pays due to yahoos. I am not talking about those guys. I am talking about your A-Team. Do they provide their own tools? If you are entering this trade? We understand times are tough. But a framer does not show up on the job without a hammer! Why would you show up without a torch, set of wrenches, or a flashlight?
