    No, not that one... you sick minded geeks! :D ;)

    The techier your box the more cool you'll be to everyone else! Mine is not very geeky, I have enough tools to get what I want done 99% of the time. I have my Dremel elsewhere, and a hammer I dont store in this box as I dont have room. Kudos to Leatherman! Its as useful or more useful than a Dremel I think. *waits for war* :worried:

    My 'average' looking toolbox.

    The storage on the very top.

    The black removable tray, where most of my used/useful tools reside. (The cat likes the smell of my Buck knifes leather case)
    [​IMG]

    The bowels of my box, where larger clunkier tools reside.

    Post'em up you geeks! And Im especially curious as to the bit-techs toolboxes, you guys have got to have some sick tools! :D

    Soon. Spring is here in Colorado. OK it's supposed to be 90F to 95F. More like summer. I'm moving my stuff to the tackroom.

    Cats? What we use them for? Lols I guess.

    Placeholder, I'll get one of mine up shortly.

    EDIT: Here we go, these are what's in my home workshop;

    Draper box. The cabinet section holds my dremel, Hot air gun, gluegun, orbital sander, jigsaw, drill, orbital polisher etc.
    [​IMG]

    Misc, notably LAN tester, Miniature side cutters & pliers, security bits for & Bosch electric driver. There's a gas soldering Iron hiding under there too.
    [​IMG]

    Left to right; Pliers & side cutters, Soldering equipment, Screwdrivers.
    [​IMG]

    More misc. Ethernet crimpers, Circle cutter, BERGEN Long hex bits.
    [​IMG]

    Torx tamperproof drivers, Torx precision drivers, 9" adjustable, de-burring tool, needle files.
    [​IMG]

    Measuring equipment - Mitutoyo digi micrometer, Sealey digi vernier caliper, squares, rulers, multimeter, rulers, tape.
    [​IMG]

    Screwdrivers, Bullet & Spade crimping kit.
    [​IMG]

    Tap & Dies, hammer, letter & number stamps. (I see someone has borrowed the T&D set and left the sleeve behind :grr:
    [​IMG]

    I know it's not technically a toolbox, but there's MOAR on the wall;

    That's most of it but not all of it. There was a line in a famous movie that went "If you can't find the right tool in this garage then you don't deserve to be near a car".... You see where I'm going ;)

    EDIT2: excuse the damaged RC Heli on the bench, I flew it in bad weather the other day (in my defence it was calm when I got in the car and set out for the field) and lost it at about 20-30' up :duh: Teach me to fly that in the wind again :( Thankfully it's only a cheapish Honey Bee King II which I'm using to fine tune my flight skills and isn't too expensive to repair. Parts are in the mail for it ;) I'll be damned if I'd take the other 'copter out in anything other than clear blue skies and 0MPH wind speed though! (carbon fiber chassis and servos & motors that cost more than I make some weeks :jawdrop:)

    that is ridiculously well organized. if my toolbox looked like that i'd be afraid to ever take any tools out of it for fear of messing it up. of course, that wouldn't really be any different to now, where i am afraid to take any tools out because i don't know if i can get them back in.

    Its a flightcase made by 5 Star Cases:

    http://www.5star-cases.com/

    It was custom specced at a special rate with 2 tool boards (the one you see in the picture hinges down to reveal another behind). Its great, you could easily drive a car over and I use it all the time to stand on to get a little bit higher!

    Ark Flight Cases Manufacture all the cases for my hardware, including PC towers that go to shows, my monitors, my Bass amps, pedals & guitars and also on some occasions high end Customer PC's that are going to be moved around a lot.

    I like using them because they're not too expensive, they're reasonably local and best of all, they will get something done for me at about a day's notice and will manufacture a case to any spec I give 'em.

    Tools aint cheap, my bro's snap-on box alone was something like 8000 dollars after trading in his smaller snap-on box for i believe 4 or 5000, he has something like 20,000 Canadian dollars worth of tools! It's insane!
