    This morning I also bought another(lost othr) 24" level.

    Where is your plumb bob on a gammon reel? I tip my hat to a plumber with a speed square.I hate going into a framed house and the plumber and electricians blocks look like the were cut by Helen Keller.
    Those mini Channellocks can be the handiest thing. 2 things:

    1) I don't have room for a plumb bob on a gammon reel.

    2) I don't know if I would know what to do with one. How do you use yours?

    I guess I could make room for the Plumbers Rule.

        Oh yeah and try out a Fax Max tape, you will thank me its a little more than the cheapies but it is worth it! and you can prob cut down on the screwdrivers in your bag, I have a drawful in my truck and just keep a 6 in one and a tiny flat head in my bag. You will use them the most anyway! that should shave down about a pound or 2

          Can you weigh it please? We are fighting over here Rick thinks it weighs 20-25 pounds tops.

            Get rid of:
            -all the crescent wrenches, replace with craftsman 8 and 10" duckbill crescent wrench and a ridgid offset hex wrench
            -all those channel locks, I personally have never needed anything but 12"
            -screwdrivers/ lenox 9-1 screwdriver and 1/4" bit set
            -duckbill snips/ midwest red offsets
            -needle nose pliers/try the husky needle nose/lineman pliers combo tool

            I would guess the bag weighs 37 lbs.
            Buy cheap, buy twice.

                Is this the east coast version of drawer full or is that something special?

                  Also, get an o-rachet from sears, best socket set I ever bought.

                    Good to have in a tool box or tool bag.

                            Don't you need a grease pencil or china marker to mark meters? I know Rick does cause I almost killed him when he used my lipstick pencil instead

                              Jumpers are a dangerous thing...LOL

                              I keep them out of my bag that way I can't forget them ( I do HVAC also).

                              I have had good luck with the internal pipe wrench (Goldengrip) Works good on busted up / cruddy tub drains.

                              Do you have a need for a good Klein wire stripper / cutter? ( I guess depends on how much electrical you are dealing with)
