A cell phone, don't know how we lived without them or how attached we have become to them.
I remember my father with his big huge rectangle shaped pager, it was the real fancy one that had two different tones so you would know who paged you. Then we went to the Motorola trunked 900Mhz radio system, then we went to Nextels. We did have bag cell phones before the trunked radio system but the costs sky rocketed and the coverage area was real bad at the time.
SHOP VAC AND AN AIR COMPRESSOR. if i ever own my own company i would put a winch on every truck. living in colorado goin off the road will happen at some point and since cell reception is always spotty better safe than sorry. o yea, and a heavy duty grill guard, once again, this is colorado. i hit three deer between montrose and telluride in one winter. i never knew how tough a chevy cavalier really is.
Everyone esle mentioned most everything and every comment was good. I will suggest 2 things, a foam pad and a plastic tray.
The foam pad is great for kneeling down, espicially on tile floors. It's even better for the commercial plumber when standing stationary for a long period of time. Your back and knees will feel the difference.
I use rubbermaid dishwasing trays. Works great when working under the sink and when gluing fittings on a finished floor. The tray, flashlight and toolbag go in with me on every job.
Forgot. A 12" level. My 9" is too short and 24" is too long but most often my 12" is just the right size.
How can a guy like myself be efficient with either dragging a corded light or trying to prop up a flashlight,both of which always seem to put critical component in the shadow at some point.Or even scraping enamel off my teeth trying to hold a mini.
Years ago I saw the headlamps for climbing/camping.
Energizer's led is economical.At any time I could have a few on the truck.One for the helper and another as a gift to someone interested.
I could not imagine screwing around on mine or somebody elses dime with anything else.
Flashlight does go on the customer's house prewalk,makes for a good pointer.
