    IMG_1903.JPG So I've had enough of lugging around my tool bag as it was feeling really heavy. It was starting to depress me every time I pulled up outside a job...the thought of lugging it up stairs etc. I've just emptied it and Ive just noticed I've lost a few things but amongst all the tools I was carrying around 55 screwdrivers, 10 pairs of cutters, 5 crimpers, 3 levels, two chalk lines, 5 Stanley knifes, 4 bolsters, 21 hole saws, 5 chisels, 2 tapes, 6 sets of Allen keys etc. Not to mention the usual build up of carp in the bottom of the bag...screws, grommets. Choc block, wagos, 7 rolls of tape, 3.5 and M4 screws and about two rubble sacks of bits of brick, plaster board dust, saw dust etc :eek::confused::D

    But on the bright side you never have to go back to the van for anything.
    I find having to leave the job to go to the wholesalers , or out to the van for more gear soul destroying in some situations.

    Aye , but I haven't got one an I'm an old fart.
    I have tool bags like yours , but not as many screwdrivers .
    I love my little Bacho set like yours though. , worth it's weight in gold.

    WTF ??!! :tearsofjoy: That's a ridiculous amount of drivers.

    My bag is heavy enough and I don't have half that in it.

    Can't help myself in the wholesalers ... I do it blatantly though and show them and say I'm taking these. He normally just tuts and shakes his head. But that's the price they have to pay to keep my business lol. I had a new armeg core drill set a few weeks ago :D
