    Something as basic as a toolbox can save time and money during your working day.
    Because I'am a diyer I cover a variety of trades so I need a toolbox to accommodate this. A few years ago I came across the Festool Systainer fitted with a hand tool insert not cheap I grant you but a great bit of kit, handy to have all your commonly used tools to hand.

    Hi bud,in terms of encouraging the tool addiction job...you really have started with Hi purity Crack ;)

    I have used most of their gear,and the most impressive item was a 6" Rotex sander - absolutely awesome.

    I suppose at £30,the boxes are not bad value,a bog standard Stanley organiser being about £15.

    I must admit I don't own any of their power tools mostly bosch and makita but the boxes are convenient to use and move about.

    Bloody hell, I didn't know Festool made toolboxes.
    But now I do.
    A prime example of how idly browsing internet forums can be expensive. :)
    (Last time I bought their rail saw and vacuum. It was life-changing :))

    That is fancy for some of the telecoms 'engineers' I've worked with. One turned up with a screwdriver and a pair of snips in a Tesco carrier bag, he couldn't even make off the CAT5 he was sent to do.

    Careful it can become addictive. As I said my favourite is the one with a hand tool insert, but the one's with drawers are handy for carrying a small drill with its charger and bits.

    It's very important for a professional to have a tool for everything.

    Mine is a 2lb lump hammer.

    I've got quite a collection now, I blame the local building supply company who had a special offer on Festool boxes.
