    good choice, multico, I used these when I worked across the pond and they are excellent. I wish I had taken mine back with me :(

    On the note of boxes, bags etc.
    Everything depends on job specifics, where as it is impossible to fit all tool's required in to one or even two boxes and never needed for one job, then it becomes too many tools, but always having missing something left in a van or home or workshop...
    Lately started to use one box for power tools, to use on the job on the day (rest is in a van)
    One bag for cordless tools, batteries and chargers
    One hard tool bag for main hand tools
    One bucket for more specific hand tools from a different box
    One folding table
    One set of folding tressels +cables+spirit levels or lasers (in its own box)

    And already, having trying to set myself the particular task-job every morning I end up with too many or too little of tool's anyway. :(

    Days like it, I miss doing workshop jobs, but when in one, miss doing site work...
    And of most, I literally wish to drive my van right in to the job, so would have all tools "by hand" IE on 5'th storey building stairwell... :p

    Have too many tools, sure they breed, usually use boxes for some of them,got multi drawer filing cabinets in workshop for hand tool storage,& I need more, also got side filers for power tool storage, but not enough.

    Have a patio to do here, seriously considering to get someone in to do it.:eek:
    Suddenly finding it hard work now.:(

    Yep, I have had to use a crutch more and more recently to move about. The trouble is, if you don't battle on it becomes a slippery slope to spending days in an arm chair. It just a matter of taking your time and not pushing it too much.

    A bit old fashioned, but for tools when working, the plumbers grip is good. It spreads out and you can see all your hand tools. It also keeps the job clean and tidy.
