    i just sat here at my computer for over an hour adding up what ive got into tools so far... this is only after about 2 yrs in the heavy equipment/truck industry... including my toolbox ive got about $8700 at my shop... and i dont have nearly enough, i most likely wont ever be done buying tools, theres a guy at my shop with a $8000 box and easily $40,000 in tools and he still buys new stuff every week...
    oh and my newest and favorite tool the 1/2" drive TECHWRENCH

    I was that way about tools for a long time (when i was a proffessional wrench bender). Now, I have about 50k worth out in my garage, basically I have a full fab shop, at my house. you should hear my neighbors, when I start welding and grinding stuff here in "da Hood"! I hear much debt coming up in your very near future! :D

    Dude... you're from Kenowhere? That rocks... I grew up in White Allis (West Allis) and my wife grew up in Rat-town (Racine). For those not in the know... Kenosha has more drugs per capita than any other city in the United States...

    $8,700? That's nothing yet. I spent $100 on three things on the Matco truck tuesday. Gonna order my 56" Craftsman Professional roll around next check. This massive box is almost the same width of the three row custom Matco some guys at my shop have, but is $4,000 less. Comes out for $3,299 with 39,929 sq.in. of drawer space. With top box on it, it'll weigh almost half a ton....just the box. :D Sick.... Beats the 26" Craftsman I got now.

    What box do you have?
