be proud of your box

I figured I draw mine- not much of a photographer. What does your box look like? Let's see who has the shabbiest, piece of crap, taped together, worn out, can't find anything because there's so much stuff piled on it, dirty, greasy, bottom drawer's been stuck for for so long- I don't know what's in it-but don't have time to fix it, tool box of them all. Post your photos, and let's vote.

preliminary tattoo art

Here's a quick sketch 666. I can clean it up, if this is the general idea of what you want.

My toolbox is just like 666's except black. That is a very good drawing of your toolbox inkwork. I checked out your homepage and have to say that is just crazy how much detail you put into all of the drawings.

J/K man. Nothing says "I'm a professional that takes pride in my work, tools, and abilities" like a Snap-On box. I guess that's why I have 3 Craftsman boxes.....


In a while, Chet.

Thanks 92,
Unfortunately, my drawing is short of all the real detail, or- crap, that really is on my box. I'll see if I can get a photo up soon. I'm serious- my box is bad, and I don't mean that in a good way.
Hey Schnitz- mine is also craftsman.

My Box is an "UltraPro", which is what NAPA sells here in Canada.
The top chest is blue, and the roll cabinet is red.
(Made it easy to spot in the shop - LOL)

Here is a B/W scan that I did from the tool catalog using a Logitech HAND scanner ... many moons ago.

Iv'e had my POS box for so long- when I bought it, it was extreamly expensive at $130.00 brand new. That's the roll away! That was about 15 years ago. Yeah- craftsman, no bearings, thin guage steel, wheels wouldn't lock at first, but now they won't even roll. At this point- I think the stickers are holding it together.

http://hotrodders.com/gallery/data/5...holstery48.jpg Me haven funnnn.
I have a guy that works for me and I SWEAR he has more tools than a MATCO truck and the Bigggest box! Problem is he doesn't know what end of a 1/2 impact does the work or where he put the tool. He's always accusing the other guys of stealing his tools only to find them in a hidden drawer. You don't have to have a great tool box to know the job. Seems the guys with the biggest fanciest boxes have to be making up for something else lacking. I now how to use my tools and have a 30 yr old SnapOn box, hahah. I don't use the tools for my living anymore. Just ask the wife.

I bought a MAC top box in 1969 I think it was and the thing had been discontinued then. It is old tech with rounded handles, etc. Another MAC MAN looked at it about fifteen years ago and was fascinated in that he had never seen one that old (and shiny)...

And remember, a man is only as good as his tool....

Since my profession of the '60's became a hobby, I hadn't kept up with the mega/maxi sizes of tool boxes that a lot of mechanics seem to think(know?) that they need. I was absolutely astounded a few of years ago when I took my car into the local Ford dealership for some warranty work. One mech needed a two step step ladder to get to the top of his box. While I don't think I have a lot of tools by today's standard, they are reasonably neatly stored, thank-you. They do fill a 50 year old Snap-on Master box (the old small one) a Craftsman roll cab and intermediate drawers, the back walls of my 3 work benches, five retired lower kitchen cabinets, several retired kitchen wall cabinets and several wood and metal shelves. I need more - tools and storage, there is never enough of either - and very few are foreign made hohummers.
