Bag Vs. Box.
What does everyone keep their tools in?
I had a friend who had a toolbag at one point, and thought it was pretty neat, so I asked for one for christmas... seeing as how the hinges on my toolbox were falling appart.
I just got around to swapping everything over and loading it in the bag.
The bag has tools. Tools and only tools. Actually, I lie. It's got some VERY basic spare parts too. Fuses, sparkplug, ujoint straps(not for me) ujoint-ubolts (for me).
I just loaded all the tools into/onto it, and I have to say, I doubt I will EVER go back to putting tools in a box. my tools are all nicely organised along the outside, with the bigger stuff/wratchets inside. It's much nicer to carry, and doesn't dig into my leg.
Before i did the swap over, the toolbox wouldn't close.. now because most of ths stuff is strapped to the outside, there is hardly anything inside.
The only downside.. is it weighs about the same.
All that went back into the toolbox, is the spare parts/specialty parts. (pitman arm puller, yoke puller, boxes of nuts/bolts, wire.. yada yada yada.)
So what does everyone here use? Box or bag?
I will end up taking both in the truck when wheeling, simply because its stuff like the yoke puller that people always need, and can't do without when the time comes.
Box or Bag Box or Bag... oh.. and not those big $bling$ $bling$ stand up cabinets, I'm talking back of the truck... or carry it around type of box.
Hrm, I should have gotten some before/after shots of this. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
