    When I was running my 3/4 ton pickup I did, plus a bunch of stuff I didn't list... Now that I've downsized my vehicle to a midsized SUV (Isuzu Rodeo) most of it stays locked in a gang box inside my locked 14' enclosed trailer, which stays on the jobsite. I only haul my mechanic type stuff back and forth in 2 craftsman tool boxes... I didn't even list half the tools I keep in that trailer....

    one tool a week, I have a problem of walking in and buying more then I need. I have tools that are broken after one time use. I may wait til I get out there and buy good brand tools. Oh and by the way I'm looking general fabrication shops or repair shops.

    Don't forget tweezers. When working with metal you always get splinters...Bob

    Mac is right, check out the union to see if they have a list handy.
    My toolbag when I was in the Ironworker's Union:
    1) speedsquare
    2) crecent wrench with the bullpin at the end (I had 2 crecent brands break on me, go for PROTO)
    3) 4 R-11'S (C-clamp vice-grips)
    4) Boch 41/2" grinder
    5) Makita 3/8" Drill
    6) set of nut drivers
    7) Soapstone
    8) 10' Welding lead/stinger
    9) Set of screwdrivers
    10) Chalkline
    11) tapemeasure
    12) Welding Helmet
    13) 2' level
    14) 3 different pliers
    15) 3lb sledge and claw hammer
    16) etc....(I had to carry 2 buckets to work everyday....

    Don't buy TOO many things until you get to work. Look in your bosses bag or bucket to see what he has...ask questions, then buy what he says you will need...at least the basics....Don't be like OTHER new guys, expect to use the bosses or partners tools....you will have much more respect if they see you buying your own tools quickly....MINIMUM!!!!!! It's expected that you buy at least 1 tool a week (as you get paid), but don't buy a $7.00 tool and expect THAT to fly!!!!!!!!! Best to save up your money, Spend at LEAST $200
    the first time you talk to your boss......
