New tool box!


Finally got a bigger box this weekend, did a little customization, and put about 15 hrs into moving everything from 3 boxes into the new box and cart. I can afford tool truck stuff, but I have 30 yrs worth of craftsman (old USA CRAFTSMAN) and plenty of cheap but adequate HF and others.
I had to order the side lockers, the should be in by Friday!

The new HF boxes are amazing for the price, I had a few of the older smaller ones and they were ok, the old cart was great, but the LOVE the series 2 stuff.

Anyone else a tool junkie or lifetime DIY mechanic?


That’s nice,mine are not all neat and organized like that lol


Mine won’t be after a few weeks! Only like this once! Lol!!!


I can see @squidskc smiling as he seeing these pics! Haha


I love the new color options HF has now!


I’ll pm you my address if you want to come organize my tools! I’m to embarrassed to post a picture lol


An organized tool box is soooo much more efficient. RIIIIIIIIIGHT… until you use it regularly!!! Trust me it’ll be a mess soon🤣


I don’t think our definition of a “mess” would be the same… I would have better luck finding the right tool if I let a train run it over and scattered everything out.




I can never keep my tool box looking like that more then 5 uses


Both. I’m a mega nerd when it comes to tools and OCD to boot. If my tool drawers aren’t like this at all times I can’t sleep at night. Lol


You must’ve seen my lunacy here. Lol



You definitely win on the organization!!! I try soooo hard but I just never have the time to keep up!! I spent the last 2 days trying to figure out why my truck won’t start, come to find out it was the plug on the fuel pump control module, 5 min fix, 2 days wasted!!! See what I mean?!?!?


Finished my last small engine of the season thanks to storms today. All new belts and a tune up on a stupid yard machines rider that was on its last leg. Anyway… your socket drawer is prettier than mine.


@squidskc yours looks great! What’s your take on the Yukon stuff? I’ve contemplated bolting tow together for another large workspace, I just wasn’t sure they were heavy enough, but seeing your vice mounted to that one might change my mind


They work great. I have two of them. They don’t make this kind with the drawers anymore. Just the cabinet style.

I wouldn’t use them if I was a mechanic, but fixing a couple things here and there they’re perfectly fine. I read somewhere they’re the husky benches rebranded.


I’m not sure what you did in the navy. But you would have done great in naval aviation.


Looked at them again just a few min ago, one drawer above the cabinets, I may go for it, is your vice bolted just to the wood, or thru the metal top too?


How much was that Yukon? I had a Kennedy just like it ,but they are extremely high.


My rate was aviation ordnance.

The metal top is just sheet metal. You don’t have much choice except to take the top drawer out and bolt it through both.

@Grizz you can get harbor freight coupons for the Yukon cabinet for $199. Stupid cheap, but built surprisingly well.
