Show your TOOLBOX

Well this is for Matt (hahahah little late)

Anyway thought it would be cool to show your toolbox, and your tool setup's?
Not sure if Snapshot's is the place for it, so I apologize in advance mods:

I work on BlackHawk helicopters for a living, so here's my setup:














That's it Let's see what ya'll got!!

As a tip, take these pictures and get them printed. And then put the hard copies at your parents house or aunts or somewhere safe. If anything ever happens to your tool box, you have proof as to what was in it.

Ahh... canon plug and safety wire pliers! I haven't seen those in a few years. Did you make the shadow boards yourself? I actually liked making them. Are you civilian? I don't miss the FOD walks.

Not showing off bud....sometimes when you present what you use, other people have better idea's for organization and build on top of what you already have....yes I am a civilian, I work for DynCorp Int. We basically do the maintenance on All of the ARMY's helicopters.

Beard...hahahah it doesn't take much other than time man...having to trace out every tool, and then cut the foam. Really time consuming. But for my job you have to it's policy.

Wade...I probabley have around $8K invested maybe more....
Dave...thanks for the tip, but when you have this much money in tools, you get your own insurance policy on yer box. Which I did. Without tools I wouldn't have a job, and I couldn't afford to buy all that all over again at one time. And the insurance company does have pics .
Mario ....you betcha...HOOKE EM HORNS!!!!!

Work won't let me take pictures, but mines all shadowed with dual layer foam, so when a tool is out, it shows red underneath. Makes box inventory at the end of the day that much easier. And I hear y'all on those FOD walks. PITA!

Lee ya gotta start somewhere man....I started out with the 80 craftsman basic set in that cheap azz plastic gray flip box that everytime you closed it and picked it up the socket's would fall out of their spots, so you got to organize metric and sae all over again when you opened it next time...LOL
