    Snap-On is addictive. I introduced myself to the new dude in my area on Friday and walked out with $300+ worth of stuff.
    Got a $5000 limit on my Snap-On trade card which can be dangerous at times.

          I thought that was cheap for a handy tool tidy, I wonder how much Snap On would sell one for.

          The cost of Aluminum is worth it IMO just for the fun of working with it.Mike

            I think it is worth the cost just because you don't have to paint it when finished.

                    Hi Tom,
                    Well just my next project but this time with out having to jugle tools and stuff.
                    It is so nice to have a clear, clean bench to start the day.

                      Looks pretty cool, definitely seems to work for you. Nice little project.

                      I'm a much bigger fan of tool boxes, than tool racks/holders though. At the moment, its even nicer, since my Snap On box is in my garage next to my welders.
                      Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.

                        Hi On Fire,
                        Yes I agree it is not every ones cup of tea.
                        I have the tool tidy sitting on top of my rolling tool cab.
                        I played with the lazy Susan and now it rotates smooth.

                        The problem I have is when you have so many tools in one tool box, is that tools are on top of other tools and it makes it hard to find some of them.
                        This way my most used tools are on hand.
                        Like a ruler, pencil, small file and so on.

                                Hy Hockey,
                                I did not start this topic to bag Snap on.
                                That said we have found here in Australia that Snap on has a time limit on the life of a tool. If the tool is older than the time they will not be replaced.
                                If the tool has been abused or you are the second owner again the tool will not be replaced.
                                If an air tool is out of the one year warranty period by a day and dies they will not fix it under warranty.
