I just found this blog entry (unfinished!) in my box. The tool items are still worthy to share, so I'll send it out with a "better late than never" tag!
I just finished eight afternoons at the JATC Local 26 Fall Fest. The trade show is a product of the Credit Union loan program which offers special discounts for the students for tools, clothes, cars and mortgages.
Dominion Electric Supply had a wide assortment of Klein, Ideal, Greenlee, and Fluke products for sale from 3-5 every afternoon when the day classes ended and the night classes began . It was a real treat for me to talk to all the first thru fifth year electricians and to the dedicated instructors who freely give their time and talent to help these young men and women become professional skilled tradespeople.
Some of the most popular items of this years show were the
Klein 932-9RE Rare Earth Magnet Torpedo Level ,
Ideal 61-766 660 Amp Meter w/TightSight Bottom display and 35-083 Twist-a-Nut Deburrrer
Greenlee L-77 Conduit Bending level and DTAPKIT drill and tap Kit
Fluke Amprobe ACD-20SW 400A Swivel Clamp Meter and 411SD Laser Distance Meter
I'll highlight these items in my next couple posts for you.
