    Buying tools is an addiction. I buy tools all the time. Once you get what you need, you tend to buy what you want. Or tools to make your job easier such as a Johnson Bar, or Angle Drills, Pneumatic PRC Dispensers...etc

    I have too many these day

    I use these every time we are running our Honeywell-Garrett TPE331 engines after our annuals. We need them to adjust the fuel controls (5/32 and 7/32)
    I also have to use the "L" hex for fuel cell removals and installations...

    Oh it's a interesting work! But your company accept you to self-equip?

    They actually prefer it, less for them to buy

    How do they control the tools? Maybe there are too many tools and you can lost it, and it can be a FOD on the a/c?

    Very good point. It rarely happens, and company controlled tools are tracked. But not hand or personal tools.

    Craftman,
    What I have normally seen is most if not all hand tools are owned by the mech/tech, and the expensive ones, or ones that have to be calibrated, or calibration tracked are owned by the company. As an avionic tech, wire strippers were typically ours, but the contact crimpers (go/no-go controlled) were company owned. While I have a meter, it is marked as reference only, and cannot be used for adjustments.
    Key wrenches like these are personal equipment, typically torque wrenches are company, etc.

My question for you is, why don’t I hear people talking about you?” Jason Dahl to Capt Mark Hoog

    Yes I see. But I think that the company should track all personal hand tools or have a procedure for you to control your personal hand tool yourself.
    Some tool like contact crimpers are controlled, but many other tool you can buy and take to company. Maybe in a very tired work day, you can forget it somewhere on plane and it may cause damage to plane. I think it should be solved here.

    SOME contract companies and MRO require you to shadow your box, but no one checks it every day.

    In my company, they have no self-equip tool. All the tool's controlled, even for a scissors. Tool box is controlled to, you can only borrow it from store, register and return the tool box with all the tool at the end of working shift. If a tool is lost, they will make a search team to make sure no tool is on aircraft. And make paper work for later investigation too. I'm exactly the person who prepare for the tool management program for my company, and I also write the tool and equipment maintenance program for my company
