i bought my own tools finally. i do need a awl and clamp still. sigh. yea my pliers were $10
What an A-Hole. I would have complained, "I can't use these tools!" and he should know what tools to use because he has his own set. You are better off using your own tools and leave the big tools for him to use when he forgets to bring his.
