Just a small question here. How many times have you seen a worker using tools for a job that they were never designed for?. A common on over here, is Electricians using a pair of pliers as a spanner, to loosen and tighten nuts and the pliers have the name as an Electrician's spanner over here. Can you guys name any like-wise situations?.
Ryan, Yeah, I've seen that happen before!. A new apprentice learnt the rule of "never lend out your tools", when he saw our Boss using HIS brand new Klien pliers to drive in a 4" nail, which I might add, he wasn't doing that very well either!.

Paul, That's one of my pet hates, seeing a guy using a screwdriver as a drill or a chisel!. I was at a house fire a couple of years ago to pull the mains fuse and happened to turn around and here was one of the firemen using my hotstickto bash holes in the soffit of the house!. I went and asked him what in Gods name he was doing with my stick and he said "Gotta let the smoke out some how!". This wound me up even more!.

Isn't Duct tape conductive?. I've seen a pair of vice-grips holding a Drop-out fuse in before today, with a 50A wire wrapped around it, BTW, this was not done by a Liney or a Faults worker!. How it was done without a serious shock to the person, that done this, is way beyond me!.
