Filtering through the garage pile.

Illustration for article titled Filtering through the garage pile.

My first big boy tool box. It became an odds and ends storage thing years ago after the bigger adult tool chest arrived. But this deserves a clean up, grease up, and a useful continuance. I should have treated it better.


It will receive the spare, old, duplicate tools and I’ll add in some rudimentary replacement budget pieces to make a good travel box for any road trip drive or for vehicle prone to break down away from home. A lot. Like my old Volvo started doing long ago.

I’m realizing I already have a pretty good set of Craftsman “american-forged” box/crescents to put in it. I’ll source a full set of sockets in shallow and deep with extensions in sae and metric-it is almost necessary now. I never know what ill find loose. Plus other useful bits. Fuses for the car, etc.


For those oppos who do have a travel box, are there any must haves you recommend?
