Oh come on, you should know me better than that by now



The tool box has 4 casters with brakes.

Each board of the 2x6 wood are screwed together to make one solid unit

On top of that, I "dished" the top of all 6 wood blocks, so the tool box would actually have to be lifted to get off the blocks, or perhaps a tremendous force could do it.

I guess so.

We don't need to be reading headlines... Patman gets run over by toolbox!

Kind of like the movie Home Alone when the kid ties a toolbox to a door and the burglers open the door... the sound of a toolbox flying down a flight of stairs. lol

That’s some nice setup Patman! Huge investment you have there. When I was a kid spending Saturdays at my fathers shop, I recall the MAC or Snap on guy pulling in and the mechanics would be ordering or picking up their new tools on a regular basis. Of course dad would always say, “mom doesn’t need to know “. 😂

investment.. Yea the first 5 years or so, it was usually 5-6k a year in tool payments. Most of the stuff will last a really long time

Yup, tools are an investment -- even the cheap stuff for home mechanics.

There are tools that just sit in my shop that get used once every 10 years. But you know what? I got them when I need them. It's hard buying a tool knowing you'll use it once in a blue moon, but it's the warm and fuzzy feeling that I know I got it. Fills my "insecurities"... or as they say it, a man can never have enough tools... lol

One thing I took away from Patman's pics, were some more tools I need... that I don't have!

Damnit Patman... you just made me need (want) more tools!!!! haha
