First Aid Kit

I don't think anyone should be on a job without having a 'first aid kit' in their arsenal.

My fist aid kit consists of a smashed box of mix matched band-aids in the glove box, a crusty tube of neosporin in the top of the tool box next to the roll of electrical tape.

Throw in a box cutter and I am ready to perform surgery.

the least important tool is the pencil

it can be replaced by so many things- blood, finger nail scratches, nail scratches, a memory. i mostly use that, but I mostly do my measurements by eye. having no pencil forces you to double check your measurement, and be sure what blemish you are using as a guide post. I enjoy a sharp pencil now and then, but they are always dulling and leaving different marks. The eye is far more acurate than a pencil, the memory is way more valuable to register your eyes data to value. and stand back, look at the big picture; the cell phone is next, with out that inspiration of laying more stuff after your tiles are put to bed, well what's the point? The pencil is the least important item on the face of this planet, I am sure it will soon be extinct.

Paul, you need to put some superglue in that 1st aid kit.

Had to use some 2 weeks ago as an eyeglass repair.

There are several old tubes of superglue, all stuck to the tool box tray.
