Most all of us have "too many tools", it's part of our makeup along with parts and projects.

Bwahahaha!

I had the men from the neighborhood come visit me once because I helped my wife clean the house and their wives were pestering them about it and I was "making their lives miserable".

That's the same response I gave them.

I have been told similar things, the ladies at the office call me a "piglet" because I'm not a regular pig like all the other men. LOL

That box IS a bit of overkill. But truthfully, my boxes are almost half that size. I don't use all of the tools in them now, but retiring I worked in a shop where one day I was working on a tar pot the next day a Cat 951 track loader and by the end of the week a I was hip deep in a Barber-Greene asphalt paver. NOBODY borrowed tools in a shop. You had to have tools to work on everything.

I'm not worried. Pretty sure my wife wont be looking in on car forums. In fact, I'd be willing to wager big money she'll never see that or any other comments all over the hotrod related forums!

Why do people spend so much money on something that doesn't make you any money? The tools in it are what help you make your money. The tool box itself doesn't, its just a storage unit.

Tool boxes are as important as the tools in them. They not only protect the tools, but will save you time looking for tools, IF they are well organized, and not over stuffed! Anyone who makes their living with tools knows how important it is to have your tools readily available, and not spend valuable time searching through storage to find what you need.
In addition to my roll around tool boxes, I have a work cart that has a secure top box, and two drawers. I often use this when I begin a job to fill with the tools and parts I need to do that job. It's easier to roll it to the car, than go back and forth between my main boxes for each tool. Once the job is done, I wheel it back and return the tools to my boxes, and take the leftover parts off the bottom of the cart. It's the best $100 I ever spent for helping me be productive, and saving time.

whenever I'm training a new guy and he starts looking for a tool I explain that every time you look for a tool its 5minutes minimum lost...Do that three times a day that's 15min a day then multiply that times 5 days a week and it costs an hour and 15min a week ,at the shop rate that's over 50.00 a week I spend for you to look for tools. now I see you looking about twice an hour so now you know why I want the tools in the box and in the proper place...then I empty the box ,put all the tools on the floor and make him put them all away while I'm standing there so he knows where everything goes. that usually puts an end to him asking where something is every 10 minutes ...
