    1972Mach1 Just some guy.....

    In the garage today, and took some time out to clean my main toolbox. I got the Craftsman box at 16 when I started wrenching and being the lot kid at the local Ski Doo/Honda/Yamaha/Polaris dealer back home. I got the Mac 35th anniversary Mustang box when I outgrew the Craftsman 2 years later in 1998 at age 18 and moved the Craftsman box to my house. Was so cool having two sets of tools! Thought I was a big deal hahaha....I remember a regular Mac box was $1800 and this Mustang one was $2200. My Mom gave me the extra $400 so I could get the special edition...same box now is around $6000 plain Jane style. This one has a hologram on the top that changes from a 64.5 to a 99 Mustang at different angles. What's holding tools in your garage, shop, or work?

    Fun thread. The Snap-On is one of my dad’s first boxes that he gave me a few years back. It’s been through a fire in 1989 and a fire in 2015. Some of the drawers need new rails. Second box was a gift as house/garage warming last year. Yeah... I have a pretty awesome dad.

    You guys are way to organized and neat for me to show my boxes. Bought a Cornwell box when I was 18 or so, still have it. Bought a stainless 2-bay Craftsman box which turned out to be a seriously cheaply made problem. Bought a 2-bay Snap-On from my son and a couple of upper boxes over the years. All piled high with crap, bearings, timing sets, random sockets, set of slip joint pliers, drawer liners, etc.

    Tools in boxes? I thought they were supposed to be in categorized piles. :eek:

    Got a used toolbox with used tools in the 80's that went to storage when I moved abroad in about 2006. Took the picture on a visit some years later.

    Now stateside and would like it back. Not a lot of tools in it but some sentimental value. The logistics of getting from KS to AZ are an issue so it sits. I hope it is still at my dads place. lol.

    Currently using my garage shelving for tools. The only "box" is a shoe box.

    Mostly all snap on tools. I started buying them when I worked at my first shop.

    This is my humble made in MERICA setup. Nuttin’ too fancy.
    My mom also got me started way back in the day with a handheld Craftsman two drawer that I still have:).
