    Thumbs up

    i love that tool box. surprisingly enough i never thought about building a better wrench box. i will have to get all my sets together and look at building some thing to do the job the way i want it to.

    if i had an extra $1000 to spend on that tool box i suspect it would solve my storage problems...............and give me an excuse to buy more to fill it up.

    the foam cut outs would work great if i had a big enough drower to keep them all in and could get the box to where it was needed.

    i have them all in a fabric carry case right now. some thing from Stanly i think but cant remember its about 12"wx20"lx10"t that zips shut and has a shoulder strap. so far its been the best option i can come up with.

    if build something I'll post up some pic's when i finish it.

    thanks for all the idea's

    What do I do with all my tools.......

    Frikkin' lose them!
    Don't know how they grow their legs in the shop, but they manage to walk off eventually. I have so many partial socket sets that I probably have 6 or 7 3/4" sockets, but I'll be ****ed if I can find a 9/16" anywhere!

    It doesn't help that I have a severe case of FSS (Flat Surface Syndrome) and crap piles up everywhere.

    Flat Surface Syndrome, wow there is a name name for my disease.is there any chance for a cure ?

    I'm OK with sockets, i have a cool set in a plastic case with deep well, standard and 1/4" in standard and metric. its a 100+ piece set that covers almost all my socket needs. best part is i can tell if i lost a socket at a glance, so 4 years later its still a complete set.

    i still have not had a chance to make a better carrier for my wrenches as i been buisy working on my new mower.my old one took a dump, and i managed to score an old ford newholland mower. with a little clean up, de-rusting, repainting, and some tune up work. now i have a sweet new mower thats old but works better tan the one i bought new. i love this thing.
    check it out. i cant believe how nice this thing is. i still need to get a book on it and find an easy way to change the drive belt, but after that it will be good as new. yea i know i should have changed the belt when i had it all apart to clean and repaint.. it just didn't acure to me to do the belts at the same time?????? no idea how i managed that goof up ?

    That mower looks awesome. The easiest way to change that belt is to get someone else to do it.

    I wish there was. I've battled it for many years with only marginal, intermittent success. The best I can hope is that I can occasionally see the entire surface of my work bench. Eventually everything ends up back in the pile!

    I find that if I order my tools in small sets it's easy to keep track of them. I never bought those giant package deals, but the small sets so they all come in small cases, and such. You cant see all the wrenches, but I have 5 sets in that drawer, just SAE, next one down is metric. I have 1 gear wrench set, 1 craftsmen 1/4-1"set, 1 craftsmen 1 1/16-1.5" set, 1 set of snap on line wrenches, and 1 set of snap on flank drives.
    Plus I have two other boxes with all the cheap tools I have collected...

    I spy with my little eye...A classic 78?

    Snap on definitely is my choice when it comes to tools/storage for them
    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.

    At my shop I have one kit in the tool box and the rest are hanging on the wall. they are all hanging off a pice 2'' x 1/4 with 1/2 round rod welded off the front. I have every wrench hanging on the wall from 1/2'' to 2 3/4''
