No, our three electrical trades are electrician, motor rewind and appliance service. Instrumentation is done through another department.

Does anyone else still use tool boxes, or have I become more of a dinosaur than I thought?

There's nothing wrong with dinosaurs.

I have several tool boxes...... In my garage! I also have a nice utility body, extended cab work truck that most my tools reside in.

My secondary tools, the ones I dont feel the need to carry but have because I know are needed at times all stay in a metal drawer tool box at work. And I have the same kind of set up at home, a EDC and a secondary tools metal drawer tool box. Plus the largest of tool boxes a shed to house the stuff I dont feel the need to keep in the garage.

I'm not sure what is included in the Ontario course outline so I can't say. I just know that the Alberta apprenticeship program is regarded as the most comprehensive in the country and the experience the Alberta apprentices get in oilfield, manufacturing, production, residential and commercial makes them very desirable around the world.

That's mostly what we get down here in Louisiana. A lot of variety and different fields of work.

varmit, i still do. i would never put my tools in a gang box without a lock on them. i lock my tools whenever i walk away from them, too.

a tool box and lock are still on our locals tool list, as they should be.

I still use the Klein 3-tier toolbox with a lock. It seems like i work outside more than inside and it does a good job of keeping tools dry while being covered in a foot of snow. I guess that makes me a dino-sparky as well.

My new Lenox tool bag, 10" tote. Maybe the best I have ever had. Compact, very large capacity, with 16 screwdriver loops, 2 closeable but very large out of the way exterior pockets ( i call them mini bags ). and pockets built tall tools, I can't say enough good stuff about it. Yes the bottom is Plastic/Rubber feet off the ground by about 1/2". Here are some pictures. Way more tools could be in there as over 5 large pockets are not being used. Even came with a cheap plastic parts box ( pictured ), handy for bits, wire nuts
