Well if the powerball does its magic, I will have the snap on and matco trucks come over and do that. Actually I have about 1 empty drawer as it is, and 3 or so portable toolboxes I might could use for some stuff.

You don't need the name brand stuff for home use. I have 2 Mastercraft roller cabinets from Menards and they are good quality for the cost. Less than $500 for the big roller cab on sale. Snappy or Matco would be 4-6 times that cost...

My current big box is a stanley. I have another one I bought at auction for 10 bucks that is a base without a top box, 23 or so inches wide. I know you can get by with whatever you have to, but if I won the lottery I would have the fancy stuff because I want it. I would get actual sets of snap on stuff too instead of the mismatched stuff I have now. I don't care what people think, I have my wants and needs regardless. And the tools would be put to good use on my brand new Lamborghini.

Plugged away on the 7th and 8th body mounts. Lots of welding and grinding to do but the shape is there.

John, The metal forming amazes me. I would love to see it being done. I just can't imagine being able to fabricate something like that. But I guess with the right equipment, anything is possible ? Allan

You mean metal doesn't just automatically shrink when you wash it?
It's only my sweaters that do that?

Perfect. You will really enjoy them. They open up a whole new world to play in. If I can help you in any way let me know.

John, if we didn't have 1,000 miles of phone line between us, I already would've been there apprenticing and learning to make floor braces...

Come winter, I will be practicing with these and the english wheel. I may become a "pest"...
