Awesome egg! Is that the ez pot pro you say is too expensive? That link isnt coming up for me. I got mine from joe jenkins. I have to pay shipping plus 45% duty plus 7.5 % vat tax to import these. I got two and dont regret it for a second. Respect

bdub, I'm getting one of those as soon as possible, which is not long considering they are made forty minutes from me. I've heated a lot of irons with a propane bottle before, and I am sentimentally attached to my firepot, but the firepot fouls irons and this tool you just mentioned is just too handy and compact to ignore. I'm in. Thanks for the tip.

Not going to buy these guys, though, unless they come Way down in price: http://www.slator-usa.com/store/p15/BIG_BOY_Contractor_Pack%21.html

Employees. Wait, can I say that? Actually I agree with Mike and say a ladder. The best tools are virtually useless on the ground.

So many tools i cant live without; freund offset tongs, stortz slate hammer, stubai pelican shears (all available from stortz and sons) but most recently id have to say..... I cant live without my EZ POT PRO portable fire pot for soldering irons. Im a dinosaur and i dont usually have anything to do with modern anything when it comes to tools especially but im sold on this one.

Here in the bahamas it has always been a problem setting up the pot for soldering. Typical problems with the heavy pot, large tank, etc but being on the ocean there is almost always a steady breeze. I rigged up a box in the past that would sort of work but nevertheless soldering on the roof was always a pita.

Check out the EZ POT PRO http://ezpotpro.com Anyone who solders often will have to have at least one. Small, light, portable, built in ignighter, wind resistant housing and best of all runs 8 hrs on a 14oz bottle!!!!

Btw i am not affiliated whatsoever with this manufacturer. I solder every single day and this product has increased my productivity significantly.

Vickie the Boss Said: What is the one thing you use in your job that you cant live with out?

Tool or Equipment (for installation) or Gadget (for business).

Vickie,

Today it would be my computer. When I was a Pup I had a Pitch Book. When they came out with the Mini DVD players I was all in, matter of fact between those times Polaroid came out with an instant movie film maker and screen. Today, its the Pute. I can market with one and sell with one. I have a Cell Phone but don't talk on it because I can't hear but I can text and it gives me a live Hot Spot for WiFi anywhere.

You can buy the biggest building in the world, have the highest trained staff and applicators but NOTHING happens until someone sells something. :)

This thread is never reconciled with the actual post date, after the date it was made.

ie: the topics page had it listed as last post by TRG on Friday June 13...

FWIW, maybe it's ploy to get people to read it???

my willpower,,without it I would never have seen the 1st day on a roof thru,,I mean after u say to yourslf "wth am I doing here ?" lol

lol. Yeah. And if we can keep them out in the "field" all that loose dirt and granules collected in the bottom of their nail bags just blends in with the scenery. (The new-hires, that is.) But now that you mention it, gophers have pouches too. I realize now that's why they call them pocket gophers. And, lord, the connections just won't stop...we all started out as go-fers. I can see that language can get a little dangerous when we look closer. Which brings up another thing with this thread. Something else I don't believe I can live without is my nailbags. I think if I have to give those up it's game over for me. Maybe I can treat them like any other addiction and just try to cut down. Does that ever work?? "It looked extremely rocky for the Mudville nine that day, the score was four to six with but an inning left to play and so, when Cooney died at first and Burroughs did the same, a pallor wreathed the features of the patrons of the game. A straggling few got up to go, leaving there the rest with that hope that springs eternal from within the human breast..."
