It was not intended to be a long trip by any means, unfortunately it took Bobby a little longer than he had anticipated. Under normal circumstances time would not be an issue for his journeyman escapades but in this situation the power source that he had plans to use had failed him. When it was time to fix and repair any job that came his way, Bobby would always choose to take the equipment back to his shop, if only for the fact that he had a reliable power supply and all of his tools right there in front of him, in this case the job was deep in the country and the owner had an unreliable source of power coming to his home. As Bobby attempted to connect the power cord to the source, he immediately realized that the customer was using a power converter and this could be the reason for many his problems.
One of the worst things that can happen to someone during the height of their work schedule is losing all power to the tools. As an electrician, Tom was responsible for carrying out electrical repairs to about 3 or 4 dozen customers, which meant that if something went wrong he would have to be on site as quickly as possible to have the matter corrected. Because many of the tools we use today depend on electricity to function, simple repairs that might require a drill would have to be put on hold until the problem with the power is rectified, unless of course you happen to own a cordless drill and even then you will only be able to function as long as the battery lasts. It is true that power tools are here to stay, now if only we can do something to make the electrical source a little more reliable.
