    This year is my first year doing Level 3 Carpentry at Weltec here in Wellington. We mainly use the main tools you explained in the toolbelt. We were given a list to get before the third week as the first two weeks we were doing small projects like saw horses so we get experience using the tools. Then we pretty donโ€™t use any nail gun, all hammering nails in manually lol only time we use a battery powered tool is drill gun haha koz we WIRED UP IN THIS BITCH ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Leads and all brother hahaha but yeah hoping to find a job to continue my Carpentry journey as it is needed to progress to Level 4 Carpentry lol

    P.s love this vids and also still up for a job if wanted ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ long shot but is worth a try LMAO not sure if iโ€™ll look like a millennial asking for a job through YouTube haha even though Iโ€™m not as i was born in 93 lmao kefs haha keep them vids coming uso! Iโ€™m part of the notification squad uce!



  2. Sammy Lester on January 16, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    i agree with everything except the gas guns! i have 2 that i run, i always use them for everything roofing/running around but for static work (eaves, ceiling framing, etc) i MUCH prefer the extra punch of an air gun. everyone i know and work with is the same as well! plus gas over here is AUS is like $20 a tube and thatโ€™s just shit



  3. Tom Stevens on January 16, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    $800 for a skil saw? Wth?



  4. jdryak on January 16, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    A circular saw (what you call a "Skillsaw") does NOT cost $800.- in the USA. They go for about $70.- in 2018.



  5. Maurice Brown on January 16, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    One is a drill and the other is a impact driver. Is Markita gear that spendy in N.Z. these days .. wow I better buy a few sets.



  6. Frankie Villa on January 16, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Dude thanks for the tip!!! Iโ€™m trying to get my apprenticeship so your a big help.im definitely subscribing ๐Ÿ‘



  7. StoneCold Sweden on January 16, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    Huh here in Sweden carpenters apprentices get to do all the dirty work pretty much, like concrete work and that stuff, not decks



  8. begley09 on January 16, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    Always interesting hearing the different experiences first years have. My first year with UBC, as a Formwork carpenter, I got destroyed. I was treated as If I should have known what journeyman known or very close to that level. Which yes, was very frustrating but it made me want to learn that much more and at a faster pace. Still have a ton to learn but reflecting on it now, I like that I was expected to do more then just push a broom around. Some things I was taught was how to use a worm drive saw and how to cut 4×4โ€™s in one go, how to lay out walls for the forms. Overall, just made me a better carpenter.



  9. Darcy Thompson on January 16, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    I first year should never be using a square as a guide so cut! Part of being an Apprentice is learning how to use tools, and use them correctly.



  10. Martin Strath on January 16, 2019 at 8:24 pm

    Interesting to see how diffrent countries are when it comes to tools and other things used in work. Here in sweden all companies must provide us with all the tools and workcloths for free.



  11. T Regis on January 16, 2019 at 8:24 pm

    You’re really cute!



  12. Darko Serafimovski on January 16, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    What kind of mask do you use?



  13. Bryte Fitness on January 16, 2019 at 8:29 pm

    Is that belt from Occidental leather?



  14. jimmyjq182 on January 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Only guy I ever saw on a job in my 18 years in construction with a expensive ass Hammer like that wasn’t worth a s***!



  15. Brad Fry on January 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    I’ll move up there and be an apprentice I already have all of that apart from the gun, already a qualified floor layer.



  16. MrWookLoaf on January 16, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    How long will one of those gas cartridges work for on that nail gun? Do they recharge them?



  17. Farmboy1544 on January 16, 2019 at 8:32 pm

    How many decks did you have to build before you could afford the Stiletto hammer. On my job site you would be laughed at for having anything so precious.



  18. Scott Duncan on January 16, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Yes we use pneumatic nail guns because code requires to shoot 3 and 1/2" common Nails which don’t fit in cordless nail guns here in the US also when framing houses we do a lot of structural plywood with 4 + 12 or 3 and 6 nail pattern so cordless nail gun wouldn’t be able to keep up. just thought I’d let you know why thanks for a great video



  19. Peter pan on January 16, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Your union will have a tool list after that the employer supplies it
    If the construction company doesnโ€™t own construction tools
    WTF!!
    Has New Zealand gone full libertarian
    Next youโ€™re going to tell me I need to supply my own safety gear
    really!!!!!



  20. Ray_Banz58 on January 16, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    For me all i need to bring is my hand tools. The company I work for provides everything else



  21. fatality Fatal on January 16, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    400 buck hammer lol I kno guys from el Salvador that will smoke you with a 6 buck hammer from Walmart



  22. Oi Mate on January 16, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    Would like to see a 2nd year video!



  23. Rob Smith on January 16, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Very useful video cheers ๐Ÿ‘



  24. Torpedo Hippo on January 16, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Didn’t know you had to buy your own tools. In Denmark the company you get hired in buys you the tools. Of course that means that they own them, not you.



  25. Freezey Sketches on January 16, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    800 DOLLARS!?!? FOR A SKILL SAW?!?! Thatโ€™s insane



  26. redberrey on January 16, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    i hate those empire squares, i can never find the swansons with the grooves that most use



  27. 24revealer on January 16, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    Wow, you must pay your apprentices very well if you expect them to supply their own cordless tools and Paslode nailer. You must have a good contract where you guarantee them steady work for the first year to make this happen??? If i expected an apprentice to show up with a $800 dollar tool bag and $1500 in power tools, I better be ready to hold their hand when mommy isn’t there. An apprentice should make purchase decisions on tools when he is closer to being a journeyman and knows what tools he will need for the line of work he will be doing. I’m in Canada and most of the time I’m happy if the help shows up at all. If they have a lunch with them that’s a bonus, and if they eat something other than coffee and donuts, they might actually be able to do something…



  28. john paul on January 16, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    Hand tools would be fine for first year. Maybe an impact driver



  29. miloraca on January 16, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    I live in Australia, stick framers still use pneumatic nail guns,much more reliable and cheaper to run than gas nailers,prefabricated framework, you can get away with the paslode gasser,I have done both in the last 20yrs



  30. Luis Jaimes on January 16, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    know how to read a tape measure.
    own a tape measure.



  31. Shawn Bowen on January 16, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    hey bud you forgot to mention the board stretcher they are super handy for green horns also a knot puller is super handy



  32. NovaMains on January 16, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Please do a video on all of the tools you have ! ๐Ÿ™‚



  33. jamie fullerton on January 16, 2019 at 8:53 pm

    As a first year apprentice in Scotland back in 2002 i earned ยฃ99 per week . Got all my hand tools from the company i worked for , smoothing plane , hammer, saw , tape , level , tool belt , tool bag , block plane , chisel set , stanley knife , nail punch and i think that was it … maybe missed a few . Bought myself a 14.4v dewalt drill and 2 batteries , but never used any other power tools till second year and that was just a go of my trades mans paslode , collated screwgun etc . Never actually bought and used my own till 3rd year . Skills test in scotland at the end of 4th year demands the use of hand tools only , well it did in 2006 . Great video but it is a big ask for a 1st year to purchase all of that



  34. Dan Theruggedman on January 16, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    Man I have so many questions?! So is your job with a Union or private company. Is residential construction different than commercial construction? What if you start with a company and then up and quit? Just questions from a Union Carpenter St. Louis MO, USA.



  35. wb5mgr on January 16, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    We have paslode guns here in the US, I’ve had one for almost 20 years but they are much more prone to break down under hard production use in my experience than a standard pneumatic nailer which is why large US crews still use them. I see pawn shops here chock full of worn out paslode gas guns, but never any hitachi or bostich pneumatic guns.



  36. Anand Lucertini on January 16, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    how much do apprentices make in aus an nz?! I heard first years make around $7!! What a joke. Basically free labour



  37. Angel Chapman on January 16, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    Hello Scott I just got a college place for "furniture course" basically all areas of woodworking for duration of 3 years to get my HND ๐Ÿ˜Š what would you say is the best tools for me to have of my own to start ๐Ÿ˜ ? Thanks for your time. Angie.
    P.s I want to start my own business doing mostly design, commission pieces and restoration.



  38. fatality Fatal on January 16, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    Starting out you need a good pair of boots a knife a hammer a tool belt and speed square. You’re kindof a douche. Lol your tools arnt even nice. Guys who start for me need no power tools I provide those. A seasoned vet I expect tools from. Starting out wear boots show up on time and clean trash and stay busy!!!!



  39. Peter Kite on January 16, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    What do you use for fencing if not an air powered coil gun?

    All of these tools are essential to be sure, but to ask a 1st year earning $13 an hour (roughly) to go out and spend thousands on tools is a little extreme. I would have an apprentice limit his tools somewhat so he could save up for a solid work vehicle like a ute or van, because how are you going to get your 2m level to work in mums hatchback? Making economical choices is a good idea as well… it works out better to save up for a 8 piece set rather than buying skins in smaller sets or individually. Good video though mate!



  40. Michael Wood on January 16, 2019 at 8:57 pm

    Thanks for listing everything in the description.



  41. sok ngor on January 16, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    wow you guy are paying an arm for tools huh over here a circular saw would be $200 for $400 for the top of the line



  42. Brian Johnson on January 16, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    Stabilla levels are the best . its what we use in Canada. I use one. There not cheep. As for a hammer. Sorry but i only use a steletto 15oz titanium hammer. The only hammer to use in my opinion. Worth every penny.



  43. Paul Hotbolt on January 16, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    what about a bender scott???



  44. GoFuck Yourself on January 16, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    wtf…2 drills one drives the screw in better…fuqwit one is impact other is the screw gun with possible hamer drive feature if your combo pack has it……….Those gas nailers suck. Go get a fucking air compressor and a real nailer be done with it. Stabila is a nice level but seriously overpriced. Their guarantee is just the bubble out of package, not if you damage the level and thats it. OX makes a fine level as well for half the price. Id never hire that guy.



  45. RangieNZ on January 16, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Air nail guns are still very much alive in AKL/NZ. I’ve just finished cladding a house with one. No fuel cells to buy either..



  46. Swiggittyswag on January 16, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    Theres a difference between a drill and an impact gun



  47. Bogarth Ajzip on January 16, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Useless



  48. Bob Blarney on January 16, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    An extra battery for the tools is always useful. A sheath for the pullsaw is a must. A digital level module several beam lengths can be handy too. A portable workbench, a No.4 bench plane and/or block plane are nice add-ons for finish work.



  49. murray crichton on January 16, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    In the UK as an apprentice you need to master the art of tea making.



  50. Johnny Badfinger on January 16, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    A nail bag. That’s it until they can save or get there own shit in what ever order they want. A cordless kit preferably
