I love getting new tools.. I still need some cutter and stuff I got 15 sections of the 1.25" cable.. and working on some cutters my guide hose is pooched.. my general needs new cable too it's old..

I usually just use scrap money to buy new stuff.. lately we've been ripping out significant amounts of cast iron so getting some weight...

You're buying tools for the company with your own money??

Of course not.... I barely have enough money for leisure let alone tools..

I've gone to minimalist tools at work.. because something broke and they wouldn't replace it..

Yeah Yeah sure, they play the game of not supplying tools making you believe they get work so you can have a job. But yet your boss has a brand new Harley, a convertible, a huge winnebago, 5x wheelers in a 4 door garage.

They would F-ing hate me and fire me, I would put all new stuff on their account and make sure it gets dirty so they can't return it. That game plays both ways. I'd be sitting in the truck all day doing nothing until the boss shows up with tools needed.

I learned tricks from the old timers and made some of my own. They wouldn't supply a tool fine I took 45 minute breaks each day until the tool was paid off.

Lol.. we have old timers that do the same thing.. Im not really like that I try to be productive because the office staff count on me to clear the calls littlerly....


the tool was a shop vac it died, and I said hey replace it he didnt want to so no big deal.. i just took every power tool off the truck... he used to call all the time asking me if I had this or that because the job called for it..


His customers will notice.. no big deal for me.. He had a blow out last year wanting all our "plumbers" to have ladders.. and for them to have electrical testers to do work on electric tanks..


I have 2 more shop vacs at home but they are not going to go in the truck nooo way..


I Understand the point of view his "plumbers" do lots of riser replacements in some large buildings.. and all the scrap is for them to keep.. which is mega bucks like 5-10 grand every 3-4 months split between 6 of them.... mines like 600 bucks a year unless I take everything I can maybe 1K..



We are the residential and drain cleaning company (all sector drains) and we are second class citizens.. they are strictly Hi-rise and commercial...


I even do their service work sometimes stupid stuff mostly or If im at the building I will do that companies calls when the super asks.. replacing partition stops, valves, partition stops, no heat calls lol whatever.. I don't change cartridges and seats usually just because i only carry residential basics for my area.. Waltec, Moen, Delta, Emco, Riobel( lately ), they carry like Cuthbert, Sterling, Galtmaster, Belanger, and about 10 more that i cant think of as regular stock..



you wouldn't believe the amount of different stuff plumbers put into those building over the years.. its like make it standard guys so you know what you need.. so alot of times they rip it out and put in moen....
