Various threads and posts talk about good value tools, meters, check boxes etc...

back in my early days after leaving school I went into a telecommunications apprentiship...

where ALL of my tools & test gear were provided & when appropriate calibrated or replaced due to wear and tear..

I was just wondering how many of us on the forum have to buy all of own tools & gear??

At work I have to use what is bought for me. What I buy for myself is a different matter! :^O

However some stuff I nick from work ends up at home, some stuff I buy for home ends up in work.... :(

In my own business I am responsible for everything, at work I make them buy me the equipment that I need to carry out the work that they want me to do.
