Or my dual workstation, open it one way and it’s set for paracord, or, spin it around and it’s set for leather, again sorry for old crappy pics, that last ones where I got the idea..

Nice little setup, I bought something similar a long while back but it had folding legs.
JR
I think I have maybe half a dozen of the full sized versions that fold up and there are a few different styles of those too.
They are crazy sturdy as a portable workbench or just the base of a larger one and the clamping action is also insanely strong in my experience.
I actually also have one smaller than that box where it is just the top part by itself and that can really come in handy too.

Same, I used to work for Lowe’s and somehow didn’t buy one! But a few years ago I really needed something and spotted this one online, someone was selling it and I was like I’m in a whole other state and can’t pick it up, so they were like the price doesn’t include shipping, but I’ll ship it if your willing to pay for the price, and well, I did.. I posted it back in the day,

The one problem working for Lowe’s is you get a discount, :whistle:
I must have spent a good 3k, but if I payed full price would have been over 25k,

I think I will try to light a fire under this thread again if I can!

So Today I had to repair several Mic cables and since I already had the Soldering Box out I figure I might as well stick it on here too!

This is a Workmate Tool Box which is an actual Workmate lid that does Workmate things and hinges over a box with a try. Pretty Handy really.
I keep a Temperature Controlled Soldering station in it as well as a Dremel adjustable vice with dual Alligater Clip Hands attached to it,crazy huh?!?!

So I can put this thing on a floor or table or desk or any handy surface and make an all day soldering party if I need to and I do need to fairly often.
The Vice contraption has a 1x2 on the bottom so it can't move on the box top and I have the Dogs for the Workmate in there too in case I need to clamp anything else down and perform surgery on it.

I Loves me some Workmate!

Thanks I like it!

I am a little surprised that it still lives too.
I have had it maybe 35 years and it is plastic but they just do not make much like they used to so theres that!
I can not get enough parts organization and man do I try all the time.

This is the Kobalt 3 drawer I originally bought for part of my collection, but I moved the collection into a cabinet.  Now it's used as intended. Tool marks on the lid were from when I locked it with a cheap lock, the key broke in the lock, and I had to cut it off.  I'm still consolidating stuff from various places, and removing heavily worn and damaged tools.



Lid. Hammers (Vaughan 20 oz. framing hammer, unknown ball peen, Pittsburgh 2 lb. dead blow, and a couple others), Vaughan pry bar, and a ton of assorted files and other stuff (and yes, those scissors are kids' school scissors, I've had them since I was 8, soon to be replaced by trauma shears). Mora is the wood chisel.




First drawer. Handmedown S&K Metric 1/4 drive sets, precision screwdrivers (in metal box next to the S&K set Allen (actually made by them) keys, and assorted cheap screwdrivers. I'll soon add the 3/8 drive Craftsman set I built to it and get rid of most of the cheap bit drivers that fill the space.  As well, I will put the 1/4 SAE set with the metric one. I use that set a lot for hobbies, and it stays upstairs.



Second drawer. Again, mostly filler.Right now is a Williams 10" adjustable wrench, Padhacksaw (old British made tool, it's got a spring that allows it to reciprocate, but it's dangerous if you're not paying attention--it will pinch you bad!) assorted small pry tools, electrical tape, and a pipe wrench.   The Williams wrench was something the power company lost and didn't claim while working on the lines near the house. They're the ones that painted it yellow, according to my granddad.



Third drawer is a ton of pliers. For sure, that's staying as-is.

Here are a couple more that I pulled from the spares shelf just waiting to be loaded up and thrashed around some more!

This is a classic Bell System Box and I have reconstructed it already a few times as the plastic cracks and the corners fall apart usually. They still make a box that looks like these but as usual they are really not as nice as even this almost worn out specimen either?

Before 9/11 I used tho carry this on the plane too but that ship has long since sailed for good.

This one is an older Pelican Case that has been modded for EMS use and is perfect for Technician use too.

I stuff this one once and a while still and it travels pretty well as do all Pelican Cases that I have used.
All Pelican Cases can be the perfect platform for a tool box I think.

I used to carry this on a plane as well.

The tool bag I keep in my room to handle most smaller tasks. There's some cheap low-end junk in here, but it will be replaced soon.  I bought the bag for $5 in the cheap tool bin at the local Advance Auto Parts. So far, it's held up pretty darned well. My name's written on the outside, and for many of the tools inside, my great-grandfather or my grandfather's name is stamped or engraved in some form on them. The rest I can easily recognize based on damage, paint spatter, etc. I've said to myself--if I see any of these tools on some flea market dealer's counter, I'm picking up the biggest one and warping that individual a new one with it.



Outside L: unmarked electrician's scissors (sold as old-stock Clauss USA), Kobalt long nose electronics pliers (indispensable in tight places) , Channellock E-318 electrician's pliers (some of my favorite general purpose pliers), Proto 226G needlenose side cutting pliers (electrical tape covers up chunk melted out of handle), Kobalt Side Cutters (will eventually be replaced by Knipex, but at least with these cheap ones, it's harder to get ticked if someone messes them up).



Outside R.

Kobalt Linesman's (I have a good Proto pair used with fence work, but the Kobalt are what I loan out), Chapman 1316 "All Purpose" set (needs some bits replaced; and the case is worn out, thus the electrical tape where it folds in half), and an Antonini (Italian made) Cable Master knife.




Inside. Didn't take anything out as it is stuffed and tough to put back. Inside is a Plierrench, Belknap claw hammer, Craftsman soft face hammer, 6" Crescent  Tool USA  Crescent Wrench;  Craftsman USA 1/4 bit driver, tire gauge, Allen key set (Eklind),  Petersen 6LN Vise Grips, several screwdrivers and few other pliers (and some other stuff)

Neat idea for thread. 

I have several boxes, yet was able to access three just now for pictures.

A Kennedy machinists chest -
Presently used for bike cycle restoration and top side gathers what ever falls onto it until I get back to biking.

A Red Craftsman, (road in my work truck till I retired)sitting on a old Kennedy traditional. 

Under my work table is a Traditional Grey Craftsman, a wood square hip style box used for tube TV service. A Black attaché style tool grip.

At my Mom’s is my Dad’s Kennedy Hip box he used for his paint brushes after I modified the drawers. (At least 45 yrs old). When in college I worked for a SK, Proto, (tools), Kennedy box distributor. Plus Kennedy Mfg factory outlet store was down the road from me in Ohio.

Nice boxes LC,
I had two craftsman boxes just like that one, just one had three draws and the other had four,

I should go look in the garage, there was a simple box that had some sockets from when we bought the house, idk if it’s any good or what name?
