Hey guys, what would be the bare minimum needed for tools to accurately diagnose restaurant refrigeration equipment? Also,How much money would these tools cost me?

Thank you for your time and input,

8 x Fingers
1/2 x Brain

Cost???
Someone said that bringing a child up costs 1M sterling, add to that 5 years apprenticeship and some experience and you are looking at about 1.3M sterling.

:cool:

Cost wise i think you would be looking at $8100 for a basic set up of hand tools, recover and vacuum tools, scales and torches plus test meters, drills etc but would still find yourself wanting a few extra things.

I once asked a senior engineer why he only brought 2 adjustables, a Phillips, a slot, and a multi tester onto site.
His reply, and I quote: "If I can't fix it with these, it's too big a problem to be fixed on a callout."
