Electric kit bag/tool contents

Discussion in 'Firing Systems And Fusing Fireworks' started by Pete Wright, Jul 19, 2021.

  1. I just had a thought about a small selection of tools/kit for doing electric firing.

    Just wondering what parts, so far I’ve listed

    Multimeter
    Pliers
    Side cutters
    Screwdrivers (multi bit set thing)
    Gaffa tape
    Cable ties
    Igniters

    Anything else that could be needed for in the field for when a system has an error, fault needs working.

    Cheers

    PVC tape
    Decent pair of wire strippers
    Depending on your point of view, a box of jelly crimps and an appropriate tool (this one does seem to divide the room, though!)

    Electricians scissors are my most used tool (strip wires, cut cable, cut cable ties). I usually bring a range of tools but the scissors and a headtorch are often the only things used.

    I'm more a fan of individual screwdrivers and much a fan of high vis handles for them.
