Advice on tools for new job....
- Hi Guys,
I quit my job and will be starting a new one tomorrow. The new job
will involve more electrical work. I will be building CNC machines
(Grinders) and will be doing the electical wiring, mechanical
assembly, as well as the applications work for the customer to get the
machine cutting the customer's parts correctly. There will also be
some field service work too.
All around, I am very excited with the new job and the great variety
of work I will be doing, should keep it interesting.
As I will be doing machine wiring as well as electrical trouble
shooting and repair, I am not sure what tools would be most
beneficial. Perhaps some of you guys that have had similar jobs could
suggest some of the more "useful" tools of the trade. I know about
the usual suspects (pliers, wrenches, nut drivers, socket wrenches,
Allen wrenches etc,), I am just not sure of the tools for electrical
repair and trouble shooting.
I would think that a good multi-meter is critical, perhaps some step
drills for making holes in cabinets for wire runs (hopefully they will
have the larger knock-out punches). Wire cutters, wire strippers and
aa soldering iron are also assumed, beyond that, not too sure what
else to look for.
Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated!
The US's own Dr W. Edwards Deming had a lot to say about the impact of
"cheap" on quality. When he was spurned in his own land, like most
prophets, he turned to teaching the Japanese about quality and they
listened, to the US's detriment. Those who ignore history are destined
to repeat it.
Here endth the lesson....
