A Beginner's Toolkit

A Beginner's Toolkit

There are so many tools that are unique to our trade. The Guild has published a Checklist, as well as a Guide for Building a Basic Tool Kit. The Journal also featured an in-depth article series entitled "What to Buy: A Series for Beginning Technicians." 

NOTE: We strongly recommend reading through these lists with a mentor. They can help you determine which tools to prioritize, answer questions you may have and demonstrate how to use them. Do not feel the need to buy all of these tools upfront! Most technicians take years to build up their supply (and most of us still find ourselves buying more all the time).  

The Checklist, Guide and Article Series can be viewed and downloaded below.
