Good stuff ,back a few years I carried a metal tool box,but I've really found that the stuff in my belt is all I need,the rest stays in the truck till needed.

As a union hand I am expected to have a required list of tools with me all the time. That would be a big belt!:eek:

Veto Pro Pac all the way for me, expensive yes, but man does it keep everything extremely organized - that alone justifies the prices. Efficiency leads to more productivity.

Plus for me the old tool box style can damage tools, if you got a file rubbing up other tools, not a good thing... but there is such a classic look to them.

Yes, I still use a Kennedy K-20 to carry a lot of my tools on a daily basis. I carry my "use all of the time" tools in my bucket with a bucket liner. I do mostly industrial maintenance, so i never know exactly what I will be into when I arrive on a site. I put my toolbox, my bucket and my dinner on my cart and I am ready for most things that i encounter. This set up has worked for me for a lot of years. I learned long ago that two smaller tool containers are better than one huge one.
