New plumber's apprentice here. The plumber i usually work with gave me a list of things to get me up to speed:
2 channellocks (big and small)
2 crescent wrenches (big and small)
16 piece screwdriver set (allen and star heads are crucial)
Speed square
A few sharpies
Carpenter pencil
25ft tape
Copper pipe cutter (basically a C clamp with a cutting surface on it)
PEX snipper (cheap husky one has served me fine)
Construction shears (great for cutting insulation segments)
Decent folding knife
Safety glasses (yes they're dorky but I would have been blinded without them) WEAR THEM when using sawzall or grinder every time
Small toolbag to carry it all
Total cost was about $120 and it made life much easier

Hope this was helpful!

It's great for plumbers all common sense, but your the 1st "plumber" that calls channelocks 10" or 12" instead of 402 or 404 channelocks etc

hey Roger, back in the day, there used to be a torpedo level called a red line level. It was made for plumbing. It had a raised plastic piece on both sides, one side set for a 1/8 fall, and one side set for a 1/4 fall. Do you know of these? I haven't been able to find one in years. It was very handy.

Ryan Kolbe says:

Line level and string. Don't cost nothing and you don't have to bullshit a run with a tape measure

Theodore Harless says:

Please say "brother"

John Don13 says:

I think the knipex channel locks are the best, I use them everyday they never slip and you get great leverage. The Milwaukee fastback razor, the rigid stop wrench, 1/2 and 3/4 crimpers, light, sawzall, impact


I would say go ahead and 1-in cold chisel and small Sledge or ball peen, plumb bob set Allen wrenches off the top of my head and then it's going to be new work or service but those are must-haves
