Most of us put a decent chunk of time into job stocking, assembling kits, and accessorizing equipment.
In jobsite settings with multiple trades, no matter how organized and tight you run, it can still be a free for all. When other trades need something, they may just grab it. Sometimes, the more organized you are, the easier you are making it for everyone on the job to find what they need. Sharing is all good, right up until the point when YOU need something and it is not there.
Generally, no one intends to actually steal anything. But they may need to use it, and you may be fine with letting them. But many things all start to look the same on a jobsite.
Vacuum attachments are among the most common items that get caught up in the incestuous sharing of tools on the job. It can be very frustrating as painters, because we probably (no, we DO) vacuum more than anyone on the jobsite, and the machines, bags and attachments are pricy.
In the holiday spirit, we’ve made it impossible for our attachments to end up on anyone else’s vacuum without it being blatantly obvious. We have made them easier to find! The visual impact and good natured message of blinging out your accessories solves any confusion regarding whose is which.
It only took about 10 minutes to make these brush attachments unmistakably Topcoat. Go on, vent away about what comes up missing the most on your sites. Leave a comment. It is therapeutic.
