I find it easier to get one of those plastic containers with smaller compartments in them for all those little bits and keep that inside my toolbox. That way, when you knock/bodge/tilt/drop your toolbox (and you will at some point!) all the valve caps/washers/disc rotor bolts/spacers/etc., don’t go everywhere.Posted 7 years agorobdobMember
I used to work at Homebase and have to admit the toolbox selection was poor, but they do take up a lot of space and customers always break the cheap ones. The more expensive Stanley ones are good though.Posted 7 years ago
I think my longest serving toolbox is a Curver one (yes the bin folk) and it’s been brilliant. I’ve seen lots of workmen with them and I can’t ever see me breaking it despite it being plastic. I just wish it was bigger. Not sure if they still make them now.spooky_b329Member
I tried a few toolboxes, settle on an open tote bag for a while but still found everything ended up in a jumbled mess at the bottom, and brake fluid/shock oil soaked the bottom which isn’t good as it spends half its time indoors.
Then I saw a bucket organiser bag in a horse shop, got the gf to buy it and then emptied my toolbox into it before she filled it with brushes, hoof picks and horse treats…it is perfect, decent tall pockets for all the tools, and all the bottles of fluid stand in the bucket and can’t fall over and leak. You would still need a compartmentalised box for all the bobbins, though I just keep them mixed up in a couple of ziplock bags and then stuff them in the mesh pocket on the outside.Posted 7 years ago
