That’s really nice. And must be a pretty big mail box!

Lots of money just for the tool box, how much money will you spend filling it up with Snapon tools, here I Aussie land Snapon tools are very expensive and way beyond my price range but they are good quility for sure, but I stick to my poor man tools, they work good enough for me.

Cleaning Kit

Also contained within the same email. In a Facebook post, someone had priced an identical Snapon box, nearly new but without the Triumph emblems adorned for about $600. It won't have the 'correct' serial numbers but....

Nice box ! This has always been the part of collecting tools that I have found difficult. It is easy for me to let go of a pretty good sum to buy a tool I need or want to get something done. You get to the point though you are forced to do something. Spending money on tool.boxes is hard for me because they don'DO anything. They just hold stuff. I am to the point I now have 2 mechanic's bottom boxes, 4 top boxes, a machinist's chest, and a roll around for the home improvement stuff. Still not enough room. The cross bed tool box on my crewcab has tools in it because they have nowhere else to go. I have tools on shelves and in drawers. This is what happens when you have worked with your hands all your life. I am 73 and have never had a desk job longer than a few months. When I die, my wife is going to have to have a giant yard sale. ...J.D.

Tool box on wheels just get in my way in my workshop I have my work benches all set up with tool boards with 3 sides of my work area has all my tools set up each side has tools for my different bikes as well socket rails for the sockets, you still got to get up to grab a tool whether from the tool board or rolling tool box, my shed is motorcycles only, can't even get a car up my back yard only bikes, my Noton has a lot of witworth nuts and bolts so another full set of WW tools, nearlly all my big shed had tool boards my lathe and milling machine has there own tools and looking at my tool boards I know when a tool is missing or not in the right place.
If I need to do work on my Land Rover I just put the tools I need in a carry box or when traveling just take the tools need in a tool box.
Works for me without spending to much money on something that gets in the way.

My roll around boxes came from my days in the auto repair business. When I left that business in 1984, all my mechanic's tools came home. This year I am in the process of moving my mechanical/machine shop over to our attached garage. I just finished putting natural gas heat in that shop so I can work comfortably in the winter. I don't think the wife likes the idea too much, but as long as I give her a place to park her car she has no grounds for complaint. That leaves the other big shop for all my maintenance and construction tools. It has a big swamp cooler for the summer months. Still will have to park the motorcycles and one car over there though.

As for Snap-On ? The first time a Snap-On vendor drove in to a shop I was working in, the first thing he did without saying a word was hand me a credit application. They never got the credit app. or my business. I used to call them "Snap-on-to-your-wallet". ...J.D.
