I love craftsmans hand tools! Everything else craftsman makes is junk but their hand tools are cheap and I love to misuse and break them, then go swap it for a brand new one.

old snap on on the left (or right, depending) of me working hard. thing has springs on the wheels and a hitch to hook up a Cushman buggy or something. Wonder if it's intended use was in the aircraft field?

3 car garage.
The top 12 drawer I got for HS graduation in 1977, the rest have been added along the way. Small red one I used for work when I was a machinery mechanic. Wasn't about to take my Craftsman to work there. But little red now has all my drills, taps, files and metal working tools in it.
Work bench has a metal office desk bolted under it. Nice big drawers for certain tools. Also have another Craftsman roll around with clamps and body tools in it.
First time I can ever say I have enough drawer space. Oh crap, jinxed it now.

2 car garage has cabinets, peg board and a couple of floor cabinets. Pretty much have tools for each garage. Different things get done in the two garages.

I keep adding swap meet toolboxes to my collection.
The bigger one is a husky bottom that I bought when I went to work building robotic stuff in silicon valley. The one on top is a older husky that one of my customers brought me after seeing how I had to pound the tools down in my drawers to get them shut. (Thank you Byron) The little side cab is HF and is surprisingly heavy duty. Yes I am going to put another pair of wheels.
The decal collection is already started.

The other box next to the mill has a bunch of drills,taps, and some of my mill and lathe tooling. Homak top and Craftsman bottom. (the homak top was my top box for about 15 years)

The 1959 gerstener machinists box was given to me by my mom's husband Bill before he died. It keeps all my better micrometers ,test indicators and fancy measuring tools. Alot of them were his from when he was a machinist back in the early sixties. (ever see a lufkin micrometer?) The big weird drawer in the middle has his old copy of machinerys handbook 16th edition. His dog tags and pictures of his kids are still on it too.
Thank you Bill, where ever you are.

I have 3 big 2 door cabinets that hold all my air tools and electric grinders and all a bunch of other stuff that doesn't fit in the roll around. Those are on the lh wall by the lift.

I have a cart that is for wiring, with a 5 drawer box and a bunch of shelves for wire and wiring supplies.

This is about 1/2 of nut and bolt world. The rest is in boxes, buckets and bins stacked on top of a 2' X 3' cart that REALLY needs to get sorted. I went to a garage sale one day and for 20.00 I got a truckload of stuff from a guy who had a parts store at one time.


You asked.
Now you know.

later, mikey

What makes it a keeper is not only the fact that it was your Stepfathers, but the age of it and the fact that it is an 11 drawer. Gerstner is still in business but the 11 drawers have not been around for quite awhile. My co-worker has one just like it that was given to him by an older toolmaker who has since passed.
And as far as a Lufkin mic....yep. I have a couple of them. Oldies but goodies!!

Well heres my little toolbox I have right now. Unfortunatley that is ALL of my tools. I bring this box to and from work every day. Heres a basic rundown- basic handtools, stick welder (pawn shop find), and a few other small things. Also take note of the amazing lack of "speed part" stickers. I am slowly adding to my collection but at least I can sey they are all mine .
edit-still cant figure out how to make an image appear

I can close the lid on mine
But I have to use a stool to see in the top of the big Craftsman.
How many of you have to do that?

Little red box has a sticker on the lid I put on when it was my job tool box. When you close it, you read; "Welcome to Miller Time"

I close the lid on mine every time I pull down the big door in front of the building.

decals....
Here is a better pic of my old top box. The strip of reflectorized decals on the third drawer down are the little year stickers that you put on your license plate.

I don't put them on my car when I renew.
I drive around with the sticker in with my registration and ins papers.
If I don't get pulled over all year, and told to put it on, it goes on my toolbox. Like teacher giving me a little gold star for being good

I have them going back to 1979., not a complete collection of course, but quite a few.(and a few are on my OLD box at home)
Anyone else do that?

later, mikey

Here is my tool box and the magnet that says it all. Sad thing about it is it doesn't hold the most expensive tools
