  • Still haven't found the hammer! Not really looking hard for it. The gloves are gone, the burn has healed, and I still have a clean garage. Well, for a garage...

          Spray cans were conquering the shop and I was bending aluminum anyhow so I did this: These are a lot like the ones they sell for enclosed race trailers but a lot cheaper......

          The idea is to put all the stuff I use regularly in the new box and keep my big SS box for all the weird stuff. With a little throwing out I think I can get down to just the two boxes but we'll see - I may need to keep the old Snap On top box. I'll keep transferring stuff and see how it works out. Most of my "regular" stuff is in there and I can roll it easily to the project which is nice.

          • Now watch yourself going to the "Old Box and Location" for the tools you need.
            OR rambling around going "Now where are those"......
            I'm terrible at changing locations of Anything !!! I'm still looking for those plastic "Christmas Tree Pins" that I put away in a logical place back in 2015 when working on the Timber Cruiser refit then.....

            • Spray cans? 2X4-6 wall support with a bungee cord sorta tight. Easy to read and sit firm

              • You know Dan that toolbox is just too neat. I'm thinking that I might have to have an intervention. Repeat after me, I will leave some tools out after use, and I won't throw out some used up pieces. Neatness isn't everything!

                        Don't worry - there are still plenty of messes in there! I'm just trying to get my tool boxes down to smaller number and make my hand tools more accessible. And Bob - no 2x4s were harmed in the making of my shop - it's ALL steel except for a pressure treated wood reinforcement over each roll-up door. Nothin' to burn that way.
