When I said I was going to look at some tool chests this weekend, what I actually meant was I'd be spreading fertiliser.

Bought this https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke- ... ontractor/ and this https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke- ... contracto/ today. Managed to get them in the car too quite easily :o Very heavy though. Just dumped them in the workshop and will sort them out in the week.

Clarke stuff is rarely top quality, but it's designed to do the job, and normally does it adequately; I buy a fair bit from them.

By the way, the wheeled base chest is not as deep from front to back as some, which makes it particularly important to put at the bottom any drawers which end up very heavy, and swop them over if they don't end up at the sort of weight you're expecting.

Bugger, late again! I was going to see if our boy wanted to flog his Snap-on roll cab and topbox- he had to take it all home when he got back from his visit in Nov/Dec. While he was training and visiting us they were revamping the motorsport workshop as it wasn't up to Ferrari, Lambo, Maserati or RR liking


Image


All tools to be kept in the bespoke cabinets- pic above was just the start of it!

Having just got back from Kuala Lumpur & RR training last week he is about to land in Taiwan for a weeks Lamborghini training which will come in handy for the end of the month when he's booked to fly to Adelaide and service 3 customers with lambo Huracan race/road cars- theres no dealer there so he's taking the test equipmnt and special tools to spend the week servicing them in an Audi garage they have done a deal with to use one of their ramps and borrow someones tools!!


Take it your be sorted now then, shipping might of cost a bit anyway :roll:

Got my new cabinets out of the packaging and installed.

all of the draws are in use :o and might need another one to go in the middle at some point, but it is already noticeably easier to find things.

3/4 inch drive in the bottom. 1/2 next, 3/8ths next, 1/4 next. inch and above spanners next, pry bars next and chainsaw, chain breakers, scrapers and mini pliers in the top.

Big metric in the bottom of the top box, various pliers in the next, 19-14mm spanner next, 3/4-9-16ths next, 13 and below next, 1/2 and below next, multimeter next and screw drivers in another. Something like that anyway.

Money well spent.

Now you need these :Ernst

I've got sets for standard 1/4 3/8 and 1/2 shallow and deep.

Same for oddball ones.

I have a larger roller cabinet, not top of the line by any means. Made in Canada, not China however.

One thing I would change on mine is that the drawers do not fully extend, there is about two inches in the back that is hard to access. They are bearing guides, and when they get heavy I think that is important.


Hi McFarmer is your Canadian cabinet a Beach like mine maybe or a Gray.

International. I'm told they have two lines, a domestically made one and an imported line.

There have been a lot of break ins locally, so I took pictures of all of my tools and did an inventory of them, in case we get done over and I have to claim on the firms insurance.
