Is a Condition Monitoring (CM) Technician Worth $2,610.11?

I’ve met more than my fair share of “handicapped” CM Techs;  “handicapped” with the lack of tools, training and poorly designed systems.

As Deming noted “…you can only be as effective as the system you work in allows you to be.”

But by far the easiest of these deficiencies to fix are inspections tools.  Below is a list of suggested basic “must have” tools for a typical CM Technician:

Cre Bonfire X flashlight, 350 lumen25.95
Stanley 2″ putty knife7.87
Stainless bristle wire brush6.50
Telescoping, articulating inspection mirror w LED lights10.95
Monarch BBL Strobe light LED, 3,000 lux587.00
SPM Bearing checker BC1001899.68
Can of Presolve de-greaser, electrically safe12.45
Kobolt wheeled, carry tool bag56.95
