Just starting off and was wondering what all you old timers use the most in your tool bag thoughout the day ?
 
Not an old timer really, but have two particular offerings - voltstick and a 20cm prybar (I find invaluable for lifting boards, removing nails, loosening back boxes etc etc)

My Superrod cable access kit. I love every difficult route now as they seem to laugh in the face of defeat. Best £200 i have ever invested.

I think the top of the range set is about £100.

Must admit, they are one fantastic bit of kit.

Never leave home without them.

CRMX - The Mega Set
The Mega Set is the ultimate Cable Rod System, offering 5 variants of flexibility. 16 m overall rod length including all flexibilities and essential items from the super-flex and specialised rod ranges mean very few working areas are inaccessible. The Super Grip pair 6-15mm O/D allows you to grip cable from the outside - the harder you pull, the tighter the grip becomes under tension.
Rods




these are the best ones £120

Bought all the supergrip attachments and extra set of bendy rods, couple of the led lights. The glider attachment is great for suspended celings and when your using the hook the glider attachment wont let go! I bought 2 sets so i had 2 tubes to store them in as i work all over the country. You split them half in 1 tube half in the other, my lads loose and forget everything least only one set is lost.

If you chaps are short of any rods, then send them an email.

They sell them direct in pairs for around £12.

The supermagnet is great, but there that strong the lads have lost 2 to girders. Apparently both times it stuck to the girder and no matter how hard they pulled or flicked the rods it wouldn't release. Tried to explain that there screw on ends by twisting the rods know wonder they unscrew and are left attached to the beam :rolleyes:

Best tool is my Fluke T3 voltage tester. I own a T5 but don't like the dial on it. Worried that dirt will get behind it etc. The T3 seems indestructible.

Also love my Knipex cutters and Irazola Screwdrivers.

Whats wrong with plastic trunking lid with a hook on the end of it? :eek:
