    Re: Tool Kit to fit around waist

    Cut things, bend things, strip things?
    Good point!
    Sorry I only see in my mind the asbestos survey team who visited our school, kitted out in spotless 'workman' trousers (the type my builder son wears), toe 'tecter boots and the biggest tool belt ever. All they used whilst in the school was a pencil and notepad, no doubt they might need tools at some point but we didn't see them use any tools at all.

    Before anyone takes offence I'm not implying ict staff don't need all the equipment, but these lads looked ridiculous! My job in a primary doesn't need anything more than a set of screwdrivers, sundry cables and spare pc bits, all hidden away throughout school.

    You make it sound like The Great Escape. I can just picture stashes of Cat5 plugs hidden in bean tins around the place and ink cartridges in tobacco tins...

    To be honest you don't need a lot of the tools on a day-to-day basis. But I do have an extensive and growing set of tools. Screwdrivers, pliers, cutters, allen keys, knives, hacksaws they're all useful. I've had occasion to use practically all of my tools.

    In one of my schools the head has regular tidying up sessions, nothing is safe, so most of my stuff is secreted around school 'where's wally' style.

    An army surplus webbing belt with removable holders might be an option. Probably somewhat over the top, though...

    Re: Tool Kit to fit around waist

    A while ago, I broke a tooth on a sugared almond and they never managed to fill it properly. One time I was seen by a very black South African locum. She struggled with he tweezers but couldn't get the old filling out. Jokingly, I handed her my leatherman. "Perfect," she said, stuck it in the sterilizer and then used it to pull out the filling. In the end I had to pay £200 to have it capped but she never charged for the repair work.

    It's just guys and their gadgets I'm afraid. But I'd be lost without my Gerber. It's part of me.

    What you don't already have one in your department, I thought they were standard issue to all IT Departments, departmental Humvees!

    Humvees? Pfft. Just get a tank. The staff soon learn where not to park or when not to ask you if you're busy

    > Humvees? Pfft. Just get a tank.

    When I was at university, the IT support department actually had a tank. They'd all bought shares in it and used to take turns to drive it at weekends. I imagine the petrol bill was a bit excessive.

    I have a leatherman Super at home perfect when I can't be bothered to go find anything else.

    I've had mine for 5-6 years now and not borken it once.

    Imagine taking that to Asda to do the weekly shop - at least parking would never be a problem..... :-)
