Default Show me your toolbox!

Didn't see a thread for this... Show me your garage toolboxes! I'm working on my collection and could use some ideas and whatnot... So post some pics

Here's mine-



Top drawer. Aka the "idk where to put this" drawer


Second drawer. Metric wrenches.


Third drawer, imperial wrenches. Also ratchet wrenches.


Fourth drawer, screwdrivers/pliers


Fifth drawer, sockets/ratchets


Behind the doors... Battery, tackle boxes and a stanley tool set


Bottom drawer, wd-40, clamps and that shit


In the three drawer... Want to turn it into an "emergency box" I can throw in the bed of my truck when a friend needs help with stuff. top drawer is microfiber towls. My dad and I do a lot of carpentry so it protects them from sawdust


Second drawer, more imperial sockets I didn't have room for in the other box and some cheap wrenches


Third drawer... Same as above but metric

Default Re: Show me your toolbox!

I've got a rolling tool cart from harbor freight... just like this one



surprisingly awesome quality, nice big draws that so far fits all of the tools I've got... only thing I added was another can tray on the other side, and i'm considering closing the bottom in. it's a mess right now but I've got 2 sets of sockets (1 on the nice plastic trays in the box, another set on the metal racks that are easy to grab on the go), a decent set of husky wrenches, a bunch of pliers & a ton of screwdrivers... my "good" craftsman set I made a simple organizer for 'em, just cut the face off the plastic package and laid it in a draw. each one has it's own slot, works nice!

for an "on the go" box I've got a little plastic box I keep behind the seat of my work truck... filled with harbor freight and other misc junk tools, it's got common American standard size wrenches, 2 adjustable wrenches (1 small, one big), a pair of channel lock pliers, lineman pliers (with snips built in) a handful of screwdrivers, duct tape, a couple of plastic bags, a length of wire & a couple of wire nuts, a couple of rags, and a knife. with that assortment of junk I can usually patch together just about anything temporarily, and usually I've got the tool I need or can use to "get the job done".

My boxes are behind the motor. One is a rolling tool cart with my most used tools, the other has the lesser used occasional tools.

ha ha, they actually had to take apart a couple small machines upfront, but had no tools in the store. So I gave them my keys and let them borrow some of mine. Which was a great feeling
