Choosing the Best Tools Box

Posted by jackbandy on July 6th, 2012

There is not just one tools chest or tools box that every person buys. There are actually quite a lot of these items and they come in different sizes, they are made from different materials, they are designed to be portable and some are designed to be permanently in one place. So how is a person supposed to decide which of these tools chest will serve them the best?
The type of tools chest that you buy to store your items will be dependent in a large part in the type of tools you use. Mechanics use different types of implements than carpenters do. Some people use items that are electric powered, some are pneumatic powered, and there are some that are strictly hand powered devices. It takes a different kind of tools box to handle the many designs of and types of devices that are considered to be tools.
There are portable tools chest that are designed for carpenters to carry their hammers, screwdrivers, tape measures, and pliers in when they go to do a job. There is a portable tools box designed for mechanics to carry their sockets, wrenches, screw drivers, and hand powered devices in when they go to do a job. These containers may be small and they can actually get fairly large. The smaller versions are great for the average homeowner to store the implements they deem necessary around their homes.
There is a stationary tools box that a lot of mechanics have in their garages and shops. These containers stay in one place and they have several drawers that allow the mechanic to organize and sort the various implements they use. These storage areas are generally crafted by some of the companies that make the working devices like Craftsman, Beta, DeWalt, and Makita. 
There are tools chest that have the size and the storage capacity of the stationary compartments but they also have wheels to allow the mechanic using them to position them close to where they will be working. These keep the mechanic from having to walk back and forth to the tools box to get the many different implements they may need to finish the job they are doing. Not many carpenters use these types of storage containers for their devices.
A lot of carpenters have tools chest that are permanent or stationary located in their vehicles so they can carry all of the items they need to do their jobs when they go. These storage spaces will be removable but they will also allow the carpenter to carry their larger items like their routers, circular saws, and jigsaws, and keep them safe from the weather and lock them up so they are not stolen from their trucks.

tools chest or a tools box is designed to hold the implements that different people use to make their jobs easier. You have to choose these items according to the type of implements that you use and where you do the majority of your work.
