An aspect that customers never see is the care and maintenance of my tools and the day to day running costs to keep all these tools working.
|The impact driver is an essential part of a modern carpenters tool kit|
My impact driver is an example of this. This week I've had to purchase two new batteries (coming in at over £50) and replace the brushes to keep it working.

The constant maintenance, sharpening, repairing and updating kit takes lots of time and costs a lot of money every year. A modern and efficient carpenter has to have far more kit than any other trade in the building industry.
