Show Your Toolbox thread
 
I'll start.

My toolbox, my old man's messy-ass garage, which was the #1 reason why I NEEDED a toolbox, I was sick of spending half a day looking for my screwdrivers :mad:
I only got the box last Christmas, 5 months ago, the top 2 chests are completely full, bottom one is 2/3 full.

Not shown: Lincoln 140HD mig/flux-cored welder.
Shown: 2009 Burton Hero 151 Coalition Edition :cool:, Big Red jack stands, Pittsburg 1.5ton floor jack, an axle that's supposed to fit an '05 STi but doesn't :mad::mad:

Wad up with that axle? Where did you get that from?

RockAuto. I've never had a problem with them, and I still don't.
They're the second store to gimme the wrong axles which don't fit.

Apparently there's a FACTORY back-order from Subaru on my front axles and NO ONE can get them; Napa, Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, etc...

So I'm thinking ppl who've bought reman'd '05 STi axles installed them, put a diff car/model's axles back in the box and returned them to get the core charge, than the stores don't have an idea what the right/wrong axles are, and just sell them again thinking they're for my car. Thats my theory at least.

I need something half that size asap. Damn that would make me eager to do the work on my car. Looks great man.

Re: Show Your Toolbox thread
 
Thanks Man! I would also need half If I didn't have a old ass truck with seized bolts and need all types of leverage. Also I'm basically done with the mechanic tool, now diagnostic and power are on my agenda. I was ebay hunting all summer, since my job cut me a check for banked vacation time. :cool:

not yet and i saw some pretty good deals for the last few weeks too.. defiantly getting something soon i saw a nice 220 set from sears i liked but I'm still ordering stuff for my suspension so once thats over ill be ready.

Re: Show Your Toolbox thread
 
I know your friend is giving you access to his tools, but tax season is coming and President's day is the next good holiday to get a blowout on tools and stuff.

Just a suggestion, anyways. It costs as much as doing one major car repair, but if you assemble your set right, Whenever you fix your car, money stays in your pocket and all that.

Re: Show Your Toolbox thread
 
i know there is just no place to keep tools in the condo where we live and they don't allow people working on their car in the garage so just 1 nice set should help me with the basic stuff i can do right now

And You lived in NY?

C'mon man, you take your car to a mall parking lot with three freinds and work on your car there. If anyone asks, you say you're trying to get it started. You pick like three different spots and alternate between them, LOL.

But honestly the Craftsman Maxx Access tool set sounds right for you, it's more versatile and as long as you're not hard wrenching (which you said you're not) perfect.

Re: Show Your Toolbox thread
 
Some people would not be too surprised to see all you need to work on a lude can fit in a husky tool bag :biggrin: Only thing that doesn't fit is the 1/2 breaker bar, torch and torque wrench, saw, brake lube, pb blaster, 3lb sledge, vac pump, etc.... That's why I need a box....:bike: (I'm away from home atm, ill post a pic of my bag laterz)

It holds more than what I have right now. Its pretty empty now since my job supplies a tool box and pretty much everything is there. If it were blue, I could have taken it but I can't complain. The one at work is a two bay box with a stainless top.

these tools are rediculous in price but their performance is nice. I know at first I had a hard time justifying paying 150 for a 3/8 flex head ratchet but whatever.

Mercedes Benz only allows blue? The "silverstar" people? Lolol at least you can use it as furniture, sexy time table, door barricade against zombies, battering ram to knock over the same zombies, and my personal fav:KITCHEN ISLAND. When I get my own house. FOREVER THIS.

I also have a tool cart and electronics only tool box too, and does the job i need it to. But those big boxes :faint:
Back to hooking myself out to fat chicks.... Again. Been looking on CL for 1950-ish tool boxes. Those look BOSS

Kitchen Island. Lmao.

Do the 50's boxes have fins at the back?

^^ Recent addition.
Tool chest/kitchen island.
At the moment it's completely empty. A coin toss will determine pots n pans or drills n drivers.

Mike lol! Be well aware if any tool box came 1950's caddy style or Bel air design, YEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!! I would!!!!! I miss that look, its like driving a comet :wank:

And Kitchen Island with the wood top like the craftsman 350-ish rolling cabinet is beautiful. A chef table from a culinary catalogue is ballpark $450 at the minimum (at least the ones i like)

Doing an ice tray / socket holder mod for those loosies i snagged the other day. Gonna keep scouring the interweb :spider: for cheap tricks to organize tools.

Invisible like button for that kobalt cart!!!

I liked the coat hanger hooks idea you mentioned.
I did find some ice trays recently...

Aaaaaand....

^^ 1950's Kennedy machinist box

Found one of these upstairs at my pops house. Still loaded with his early early machinist tools, conversion charts and notes.
If memory serves his is a 5 drawer unit.

I know this is probably wasted words since they already give you a box but paint it if you want to use yours.
