Is there an actual difference between an optical lens chamois and the ones you can find at a store like blick? If so, what kind of chamois should I be looking for? I'm trying to put my 2cd ac gear kit together - I'd appreciate any tips on where to get quality tools, but that aren't over priced.
Thanks much -N

I'd buy this type of stuff from a store that supplies the industry, it's petty cash compared to the cost of the glass ware you're cleaning. Personally I don't use chamois, but any I've seen being used looks finer the type you use for washing windows.
You can get similar tools at DIY stores or tool suppliers.

I would go on filmtools and get a rough understanding on what may be needed on set.
I would start by asking your first. Who knows you might be doubling up on tools. Most 1st's that I have worked for tells me after the first day that we don't need 2 cinebags, and keep my tool bag on the truck and load his/hers on the carts.
If you're building a kit, ask your 1st. I'm sure he/she will help unless you over sold yourself.

A must in my pouch:
Cheap precision pen (Philip & Srewdriver)
And of course,
Extra china markers ( dressed with Velcro) white and yellow - colors to see at night
Also strapped to my waist,
16' hard tape
50' soft tape
Distanc finder laser ( if my 1st uses it)
My paper tape
