scary part of seeing this is if I put all my tools in one spot at one time, I could probably fill this monster. Especially if I had all the ones I lost over the years. At least I could fill it as long as each tool was laid flat and not stacked on top of each other. I will pass on the monthly rent charge though.

Just get ahold of the King. He can whip you up one pretty quick in the off
season. Now transportation to CO with the Screaming Ford and a Dozer to
move it with the exchange rate of CA to US and expenses will be a little high
but you only have to worry about which tool is in which drawer. Swing by
Sams or some sort of place like that so that he isnt dead head all the way back
up North. I bet Joey could put a pretty decent dent in their inventory on one
shopping spree. But man would it be fun filling it up.

That's not just a toolbox, it's a habitat. At the end of the day, he climbs inside the one on the left end and he's home! Flops in his Lazy Boy, clicks on the tv and has a cold one.

As Sberry put it, if you could afford it, you probably dont need it.

Im still running the same $800 3 piece C-Man box I bought when I got out of high school (30 years ago). The thought of a larger box, has run through my mind, for about a nano-second, until I remember how much $ they get for them.

Ive gone to re-purposing blue print cabinets, index card cabinets, 2 door shelved storage cabinets and industrial storage bins for holding my "excess" tools. Color me "cheap". I know that does not fly in the "real" world, but works great in my shop.

I just missed a Kennedy cart with three lower cabinets, a big machinist's top box and a good Wilton vise (not machinist's) on local CL. Guy was asking $200.
