TIME FOR A TOOLBOX UPDATE!

So first off the toolbox stands the same, i have a little table attachment for a little extra "bench space"
Ive been looking at buying the full size side cabinate for one side and the half size cabinet on the other, along witht eh little add on table thingo just to make it even bigger. But for now i dont need anymore space.


on the top i have my snap on ratchets to the left, a 3/8 flexi elbow, a small 3/8 flexi and a 1/4 micro ratchet.
On top of them is my torque bars for the rattle gun, then on the socket tray just some impact sockets, torx sockets, ebits and various other sockets...
And of course to the right a full SP socket and ratchet set (with breaker bar)
Also just the snap on deep socket set... and some touch up paint just for marking things.


Ive got 3 spanner draws, range of ratcheting, ring, open, pipe, long, short and angled





My milwaukee draw.
3/8 impact gun
Screwdriver thingo...
drill
4 batteries in total, 2 of them are the 2amp range...


More of a Misc draw.


Personal belongings draw for my phone and such...


Electrical draw.
Ive also got a power probe as you will see in one of the lower draws.
ive now replaced this bluepoint multimeter with a better SP one which i got as an award.



Engraver, fuel line disconnect tools, picks and hooks, cleaning products... punches and chisels


oil filter claw in the top there is probably the best tool to use for oil filters.








paper work, and my (Common/pain in the ass) folder which ive organised for each car.. basically just issues ive diagnosed previously so if one day the same issue comes in on a similar car i can look back and remember what i found last time.


Random stuff... Power probe: if you dont have one of these GET ONE they make simple diagnostics much quicker.

im disappointed in you aus.
you only have 1 shifter and it appears to be imperial and looks like an 8 inch version.
how will you ever undo those metric nuts with a tool designed for imperial items only?

However after recently changing jobs and what not I decided I needed to upgrade the toolbag to something slightly more practical and easier to use that wasn't quite so homegrown and agricultural.
although I do have to admit the old sidchrome roundtop with wheels bolted on was awesome, when I moved into a service role it didn't look quite professional. and since then have moved around a bit in jobs, but it works well.
now this did happen over a year ago but anyway, I bought one of these:


FACOM BS.R20 toobag that has wheels and everything else.
it did cost me a bit in space as I could no longer keep the decent sized 3/8 socket set in the bag but as most times I had the car right next to the site its been replaced with a Bahco socket set that has everything bar the kitchen sink. but strangely enough the 3/8 extension still are in there
And the toolwrap now doesn't sit inside the bag but as a whole it works out well

one day we may get around to emptying it and taking a photo of the tools in there,
but until then it still has everything including the kitchen sink.
Being in a role that has everything from Electrical through to Pneumatics will do that to you

Aus your hammer is touching your speed handle. Big no no... You're gonna need those extra side cabs.

Do you rate the Milwookie cordless gear?

Love the cordless guns, I use them all the time! Never failed me and have been dropped in oil, covered in trans fluid and thrown around
