my motto on buying tools, 'if i don't have the right tool starting a job, i will when i'm done.' and that's closely followed by 'you can never have too many tools.'

my chest is divvied up just to my liking. and no one else's.

oh, another good one, ' i bet this craftsman wrench can tighten that bolt just as tight as that snap-on wrench....'

I absolutely DESPISE borrowing tools. You borrow a tool, most of the time, its a deal where its a questionable quality tool, you end up destroying/damaging it , and you buy the lender a replacement, then buying yourself one. Take the shortcut, and just buy it the first time, FOR YOURSELF. If you needed it once, you'll need it again. See? I'm cheap !!

I am a car audio installer and have a 8 drawer roll around craftsman box. Personaly I love craftsman tools and havent had any problems out of them, but also im not doing super heavy wrenching with them (heavy engine work).

I lay out my box so its easy to grab my tools while im still in a car or trunk while installing. I have my connectors in the top, T-Handle allens in the first, screw drivers and bits in second, then pliers, dremeil, digital multimeter and crempers in the thrid. Bottom part of the box has all my sockets in the first (all on rails) second drawer has my open end, ratchets and open end ratchets and small 1/4 ratchet set (for quick radio removal). Bottom storage is for numatic cutting tools, drill, light and saw.

I set mine up for easy and quick access.
