    Best Fog Machines?

    At my company we use and love our 1800 flex. Fairly heavy on fluid consumption, but they put out tons of fog as well as being able to turn into position to jet fog wherever you need. Can be set on the floor and shot up, or mounted to truss and shot down. Sent from my HTC DNA via Tapatalk Pro!

    Favorite Multi-tool Brand

    I have a leatherman "rebar" at the moment. It's alright, but I miss my Gerber Flik. Got stolen off of a 12ft ladder a month ago. Good thing about the Rebar is the cutters though.. It cuts aircraft cable..

    Control/Dimming Legrand Ground Continuity Monitoring Connectors

    Maybe if you're going to use them for a break in/out on a socapex run to help identify which circuits are hot and/or identify where you may have dead pin inside your run; but as far as having one on each and every cable, that just seems like too much money (We have these plugs as well, they...
