I am in the process of gathering some information pertaining to start up costs and equipment. First off, let me say that I have been reading through these forums for quite some time and have utilized the “search” function relating to on-the-job tools, and haven’t had much luck. I will gladly take direction to the proper location of this information as well. I’ll also add that these forums are awesome and worth their weight in gold. With that being said, Id like to ask you all a few questions.
What was your experience with start up costs? I understand it can be done on a fairly low budget, but I am more interested in what you have found absolutely necessary or UN-necessary. Knowing what you know now, where would you have put your most effort, time, and money?
Also, what is in your on-the-job tool kit? What do you use the most, and are there any must have tools?
To be clear, I have a fairly good idea of what I think would work for me. I’m just hoping to get a few more ideas. Thanks in advance for any replies, as I do value everyone’s experience and knowledge and look forward to hearing what you all have to say.
