    do not take another tradesmans tools without asking!!!!!

    I think this is the most important rule of all. Especially with expensive tools.

    Isnt that right! I can’t stand when other tradesmen want to latch onto my stuff! If I don’t have something I buy it…why can’t they? I’m not the tool rental house…

    do not take another tradesmans tools without asking!!!!! this one drives me nuts.. guys do it all the time.. personally im just about ready to start telling my coworkers my tools are completely off limits

    one of our guys took my $90 japanese hand saw the other day to cut pressure treated.. i had already clearly told him twice.. do not touch that saw at all!!.. i keep it in my trim kit and i use it very sparingly for cutting small detail pcs and for finishing notches in pcs of hardwood transitions and what not

    I remember you posting about it before, did you make sure he remembers this time? lol

    Somebody taking my tools without asking is like walking into my house without knocking. It’s an intrusion into my very private space.

    When the tools are not in use, do you keep em locked up in your lboxx’es or put away in the truck?

    They are all in my my shop. Most have Systainers or are stand alones. I do not keep any tools ever in a vehicle overnite. No need to.

    They’re mostly in systainers in my shop. I don’t travel further than my yard with them.

    I guess that is good for you and I, but for people like chris on a job site or something, it would be good to be able to lock them securely

    Man the nerve of some people just going into your tool box and borrowing a tool you told them 2 times not to borrow. Some people just don’t care.

    I’m thinking you could get a length of aircraft cable and cut/crimp to exact length you need, daisy chain another onto something solid like pipes, staircases etc, then lock it with a padlock.

    sounds good, but not always possible or practical.

    To be realistic, I would say that Deltas list is a bit advanced for someones first day ever. Bottom line is just abide by my big 3.

    1) show up

    2) on time

    3) be prepared to work.

    If this list proves too difficult, your career in construction is gonna be real bumpy.

    ive always belived the fewer the rules, the fewer the loopholes.

    1. respect yourself
    2. respect others
    3. respect property

    must say that yours (both warren and delta) make it easy with clear cut examples

    The tattoos one is not applied to over here. Tattoos are a huge part of the Polynesian culture and are highly respected. Many local women have culture tattoos on their sweetness.

    this is a great point. so often we look at things without understanding.

    I need to show the list to our employee. He does pretty good, but could learn a few of those items.

    I feel for a lot of the guys on this forum. You’re all regularly facing all sorts of challenges having to go from place to place with the tools you have to make a living. That can’t be easy.

    Then on top of it they don’t want to pay you enough to make a living or operate a truck to carry all the tools you need.
