Popular thread on another forum I belong to. Figured I'd start off showing a few of mine. I've never posted pictures on the internet before. Hope it all goes well.

I have a pretty nice variable speed cordless drill.

Everyone was telling me how great they are so I splurged and got myself one.

Seemed to me the old style plug in ones would be better? 

Hoping next year I can buy some drill bits and maybe even a screwdriver tip for it.

Really like to get both straight and Phillips bits if I could.

Maybe if the MRS got a second job......

The red one is a 60" double stack.  The blue one with the black roll up front is a 50" storage chest where I keep the grinders, impacts with sockets, special tools like compression tester set, etc. etc.  Have one more Sears 36" stacked box in the machine shed with just basic tools.  When I got the red one I thought it would be big enough for everything I would ever get.  Wrong.

Tool boxes are just like a garage or storage barn, never enough room.

I had one like that  until it burnt up last winter.  

 

By the way, I heard you've been snooping around in my new shop when I wasn't home!!!  ( :mad2:)   :D    :D    :D

Yeah,  you may be missing some stuff.  Didn't seem right for you to have all new stuff and me to have no stuff. 

Call it tool redistribution.  :wave:

Having tools is one thing.  Knowing how to use them is another matter.

Great looking setups! I would be scared to use them, everything is so clean and organized!

I have one of them too but the "battery" wore out. Last pic. I just made a wall hanger out of it.

 

My old roller cabinets is the first pic. The grey Craftsman was given to me in 1972---very long sentimental story I won't go into. Got the red one cheap a couple years ago. Power tools are in other places scattered around the shop.

Little Craftsman for miscellaneous stuff and a Milwaukee from The Home Depot that's pretty nice.

There is no such thing as a big enough tool box or garage I don't think.
