I carried an electricians line belt and pouch with dykes, duck bills, safety wire pliers, safety wire, 1/4 ratchet, set of small snap on 1/4 drives on a rail, Apex driver with a film can of tips, some open/box end wrenches 3/8 to 9/16, a 6in cresent wrench, 3 cell mag light with halogen bulb (very shock proof), rack of allen wrenches .050 to 1/4 in for loose instrument knobs, electricians knife, and other misc. items. Everything you need to keep the delays to a minimum.
In the Hangar, a pen and the flashlight. My faithful rollaway carried the rest where ever I went.
Only if it's a customer and I will be paid for it (time and a half - real money, not Time Off In Lieu).
And even then, a maximum of 6 hours on top of an 8 hour shift because of the European Working Time Directive which limits my duty time to 14hrs.
If the a/c belongs to my employer, I am obliged to work 2 hours overtime (IAW my contract of employment). After that I walk off the job, due to my local manager deciding that he will only allow TOIL at one/one ratio (in fact, he announced this earlier this week).

Google it for the EU document but it's all legalese bollocks. In summary:-
The EWTD applies to people in "transport" within the EU. We may work up to 14 hours and then have a 10 hour break before further duty.
There are also limits to the number of hours worked per week, consecutive days on duty, special rules for night workers, etc.
Crew hours are limited, now mine are too. All good, safe stuff.
The days of the "ghoster" have, thankfully, gone.

Mini-Mag and Super Leatherman on belt. Sometimes a 3D-cell Maglite. Leatherman doesn't get much use. I usually have a 100 LB ( or 50 Kg if you like ) cantelever tool box in tow ( on the end of a 3 foot length of stout chain riding on a custom-made aluminum platform cart ) Jam-packed with most everything I need.
So it's a mobile phone that does email.
How can it help me?
If it was a PC that could connect to the company network and I could then
use our Technical Info Portal (all fleets, all manuals) it would be useful.
Otherwise, it's just a mobile that does email.
