Joe Joe says:

Here in the states we use a hammer with a straight back to use. As a Chisel for block walls.

Joe Joe says:

I agree that Milwaukee head lamp goes through battery quick. Buy Amazon basic rechargeable battery very cheap for them. Klein just came out with a cheap rechargeable head lamp.

Ryan Rice says:

In California we use a lot of EMT OR Rigid conduit, we use pvc for underground


I like the wiha slim drivers1000v ones

Oscar Montes says:

In the US we use emt for commercial work rigid pipe for industrial

Try wiss tin snips they also do scissors for tin. Razor sharp last quite a long time to

grotrev says:

Felo screwdrivers is what I use, they’re awesome

Michael Bristow says:

check out greenlee pvc pipe cutters, quite slick the set we got

Matty Wattam says:

What brand is that folding plasterboard / jab saw?

Kelsie Linnell says:

Thanks for the great video!
I have a cheap pair of multi grips – but some of the guys have the Knipex and they’re so much better! So expensive though. I’m hoping to get some in the future.
That inspection light looks great, Would have been super handy for what I was doing today actually!
I have a Pica marker and it’s been great for getting into deep spots that the regular Milwaukee wasn’t thin and long enough to reach.
Can I ask where did you get the el cheapo ‘workzone’ range of screwdrivers?

Sparky D's Toolbox Talk says:

You were correct, we use alot of EMT in the United States, as well as Ridgid Metal Conduit


Great video mate. Really appreciate the insight and now have a shopping list 👍

Rex Greenleaf says:

Solid list of tools.

I would suggest a volt stick as well, even though this tool is a bit controversial.

Fluke FLK-1ACA1II/APAC (5293895)

Don't need a tape measure? haha, good vid man

owen t says:

I use the Wiha slimline screwdrivers which I have no complaints about. And as for conduit cutters I have Milwaukee pipe cutters which I can just get through 32mm pipe , anything bigger I get a reciprocating saw out . Thanks for the video

Plumb Raider says:

Calls bahco an okay shifter haha

Bahco invented the adjustable spanner mate! :p

I believe Irega makes them for them nowadays, channellock shifters are also made by Irega.

Liam Hunter says:

I’m a 3rd year about to go into my 4th year and I’m about to get my first work Ute/van I have all my hand tools and. A couple power tools but would love a video like this talking about what I need to get like socket sets, spanner sets, power tools etc

Mika Varvoda says:

What brand clampmeters/ multimeters would you recommend for an apprentice?

Lachlan Palmer says:

Advice i got as an apprentice was that, "you don't make enough money to buy cheap tools ". Me personally i have always opted for quality tools that i can keep for a lifetime, rather than replacing yearly.

Martín Electrician says:

Great video! Good selection

Ben Heath says:

Dan Caldwell says:

Got Wera slimfix screwdrivers recently (from Haymans of all places) and they are as good if not better than the stainless ones 👌 Great vid keep em coming
