Toolbox recommendations - June 23, 2014, 03:52 PM

Tired of crappy plastic clasps breaking and spilling everything all over the place, handles that snap off easily, and generally small and useless interior spaces. I want a toolbox with at least metal clasps that will take some abuse, a good carry handle, and big enough to fit a standard claw hammer, screwdrivers, a couple of ratchets, some spare bike parts like levers, clip ons, etc. Inserts/dividers for fasteners is a plus, but not necessary. Just need something that can carry a decent amount, still carryable by hand, and can be tossed around a bit.

Anybody have any good recommendations?

Look for something called the Rollbox Collapsible Tool Box, I think you can buy it from tools.woot.com

Some guys from the R6-forum use it I think, pretty cool

Hmmm, they are out on woot, but I'll look into it - thanks.

One I've heard mentioned is Hazet - they have a nice cantilever metal toolbox. A bit pricey, but I'm more worried that it won't fit enough in it. The 190L I think it is? Anybody know of it / work with it?

I have a tool bucket I take with me to the track. I bought a Bucket Boss or something like that to put in/around it. Has pockets for all essentials and you can just replace the bucket if you need to.

I have this


Picked it up because it was cheap, about 5 or 6 years back. I'm not gentle with my stuff, and its held up well. Also have one of those old craftsman steel boxes, looks about like this and pretty sure it's older than I am. Would take a stick of dynamite or two to break that thing.

This has worked out really well for me. No need to fumble for tools, everything is mostly accessible and it stores everything I need for a day at the track:

Using ammo cans as toolbox is a good option also.
