Neat idea for thread. I have several boxes, yet was able to access three just now for pictures. A Kennedy machinists chest -(Image removed from quote.) 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)(Image removed from quote.)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. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Tool pail/caddy made by me. Stainless TIG welded with dividers to keep my hand tools organized. Whipped the handle with paracord for a comfy grip. It is all stickered up now but is at work so no current pictures, just ones from when I built it. I used to use a steel pail I pimped out but the bottom was getting thin from sliding on concrete and it was getting pretty bashed.
Nice one! I know what you mean about sliding on concrete.I had a great D-Flite sign painter's kit that I got as partial payment for teaching a seminar at an art school and the corners of the box(reinforcements actually riveted on)fell off after the rivets holding them on were ground away by sliding it across concrete floors.I finally started using a lighter box so I didn't have to slide it all the time.
