  • Surgeons Tools...

    Cleaned out my Veto today. Thought it might make some good pics for someone starting out wondering about some hand tools they might want. This is the bag & tools I walk in with on most every service call.

    What's in your "Surgeons" tool bag?

    I'm dying to ask but I'm afraid of the answer

    What's with the turkey baster?

      Glad you asked! You're pretty observant. It DOES go in the bag.

      I've used it many times to get that last bit of water in the bottom of a toilet tank when changing the valve.

      Wonder what you were thinking?

        P.S.

        Any suggestions for additions or removal of tools from my bag are welcomed. Always trying to improve.

        Thanks.

            Why the bolt cutters?

              Have needed the bolt cutters a couple of times. Have a small dental mirror in the pic somewhere.

              I keep a separate "solder bag" with everything copper related.

              Have to see if I have room for the pipe wrenches. Thanks.

                See JC, we could work together.
                Buy cheap, buy twice.

                  If you had me "dentaling" joints you'd see all those tools in the bag come flying at you. Then me screaming "PRODUCTION! I NEED MORE PRODUCTION!"

                    A long extendable magnet to pick up the small screws or nails you drop?

                    I use it to find studs in drywall to hang things.

                    How much does your bag weigh? I guess about 30 lbs. Am I close?

                      It makes me smile when I see your new mini channel locks.I just bought my third pair in 4 months.Why are your crescents so clean.

                      I swapped my nut drivers out for a 1/4" minimal(12 count,4deep8regular)socket set,ratchet and 3"extension.

                      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.

                        That's a good tip Mrs. Joey. I saw one at Northern Hydraulics the other day with an LED built into the end. I got distracted (A guy surrounded by hardware, tools, engines, etc.) and forgot to grab it on the way out.

                        I haven't weighed-it's but probably 30+lbs.
