What’s the name of the tool in the black t-shirt?
Pretty much same kit!!!
I did it about three weeks ago. I learned a lot about it on the Woodglut website. Check.
The like was for your friend, 👍
Tool box is like Santa’s toy bag
can you recommend some electrical and cordless tools needed to have with the basic tool box or just basic tools which are electrical based that a carpenter should have in their possession
He said "huge nuts" sorry couldn’t resist.🤣🤣
Great job, and nice humor too. I enjoyed this.
OK..Ok.. how the F do you fit all that into a 24 inch tool bag? I kow its a lot of smaller tools and stuff but wtf? wither you are not busy enough throughout your day jumping from job to job or you are just ver y careful not to spill tool about when loading and unloading tools daily. I’m guessing no rush and not working for a contractor. but you have a great tool list of things to carry! Am I weird ? yes probably.
No 5 in 1 tool?
Wow didn’t know you had another channel apart from your skateboarding one!
My guess is that it weighs 56 pounds.
truck/van tour video?
Brother!, it is unbelievable how nearly identical our primary tool boxes are!! Seriously!
I use that same hammer and I love it. I only buy that hammer. Everyone I work with uses the same one too lol.
Since WW2 testosterone levels in men have dropped by over 50% on average.
You should get your levels checked.
When we’re not looking, lmao, tradesmen 😂🤣
Hahahaha I’ve been laughing for a good time with this video :’)
Good video very interesting, always good to hear how a professional prepares for working and what tools they prefere to use, good advice here your really sharing your experience, also you included some fun humour about the Youtuber comments which made me laugh, your videos are very watchable, keep up the good work on your channel, and I will check out your other videos, to learn more, I gave this a thumbs up and subscribed, from novice DIY-er Laura in uk
5:44 THANKS FOR THAT TIP!!!! I’m renovating and have about about 10 million brad nails to remove from baseboards, trim, lumber, wainscotting, etc. I’ve been using pliers and just hauling the damn things out, and this will be a hell of a lot easier!! Love your vids, and have subscribed.
Nice to see another man’s general tool box.
Like you I have one general that goes to every job and a few bags which are specific to trade tools.
A general bag ( or old wooden box in my case) is very personnel to each man, it has been refined over many years of working and learning.
A few comments below which are valid that you should carry this or that, well, that may suit one guy but not another, or you may have that tool in another bag.
I literally cannot function without my general box.
Thanks for sharing, very interesting to see what other guys carry
I have the same hammer Estwing 20 oz with straight claw, I have used it for about 25 years, worked all over Europe and Scandinavia with it. I always get comments from colleagues that they don’t like my hammer, they always say it is too light, so ask what weight is theirs, and it is always the same 20 oz as mine, difference is they are using those hammers with a pipe like handle that is so out of balance and top heavy it feels heavier. I am glad to have worked all my life with Estwing hammers and sure it has saved my wrist and elbow from repetative shock.
A carpenter without a t-bevel? Also a pair of end cutting pliers to use as nail pullers is a most. A few other things that I like to keep in my bag are a small pair of needle nose vice grips for removing stripped screws, a small memo pad for obvious reasons, a variety of pencils, pens and markers, a chalkline, plumb bob, mini hacksaw, line level, safety glasses and ear plugs
I WATCH YOUR SKATE VIDEOS TOO
THIS IS AWESOME I HAD NO IDEA
Love this video
I’m sure that guy who left his stiletto “never came back for it” or maybe he did and you were Calgary, aye?
OMG. Too funny! I teach kids construction techniques. They’re going to love this one. Thanks!
That Stiletto pry bar saved you 10 grams out of your 50lb tool kit. LOL
A guy at work broke his stilleto nail bar last week, waste of monney but they look cool lol
You look like Wish brand Grant Gustin
Him calling us "tool nerds". LOL.
I purchased some excellent plans from the Woodglut website.
I swear you just came into my truck and got MY tool kit. The only difference is your calking/silicone tubes and I carry a contour thingie for drawing contour of baseboards or odd shapes. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, you seem to be doing a lot of the same type of work I used to (insurance jobs)
the first one you couldn’t think of is called a thingamabob and the other one is called a doohickey
How much does that weigh??
7:14 words of a true sage
Dear I’m thinking about turning this shed into a living space what main tools do I need please and thank you
Ben oh Ben I am getting your biggest fan and I am from Abbotsford bc —manny
The pink oatey teflon tape is awesome … costs $5 or $6 a role, but worth every cent.
I don’t know what these tools are called. Can’t help you.
Love it. Very similar to my main tool bag
My only first aid item was tweezers to get those nasty wood slivers out of my hands
🖕 that Estwing is awesome. Old American 🇺🇸 made!
By chance would you have a link to a decent carpenters belt? I have purchase several from big box and am never happy with them. Either the pockets are closed up so tight you cant get a hand in to grab nails or screws or there is no quick place to clip a tape measure or not the right quantity of small slots for screwdrivers or knife or pencil or whatever. I just can’t seem to find a good one.
this is relaxing and funny
Why do you have a bunch of other peoples tools in your bag? 🤨 I’m pretty sure at least on of those is mine 🤣
I though it was the Flash talking about tools.
I did it with the Woodglut plans.
