    All good pics guys!! Trying to decide if I want to abandon my T-locs in favor of L-boxx. I have 4 1’s and a 3. Could make for a good trim tool setup…

    I was wondering about going the other way. Not seriously. But I really don’t like the way lboxxes lock. You’d be surprised how often being able to sneak into a lower box for a second without unstacking is useful. Though the tlocs are a lot smaller. There’s a lot of tools that just won’t fit (recip for one). and they’re more money usually.

    I don’t have any lboxx 1’s. A pair of 2’s and a 3d with drawers. I have a 4 on the way for my cordless dewalt circular saw. Was thinking of making a L4 with dividers for my finish nailers, but I think I like the idea of setting up an L1 for each. Just looks nice and neat, which I like.

    It’s funny you mention the locking design….it is the biggest thing holding me back…I love how easy they go together. The other thing holding me back is the L-boxx would be a third box system in my van…not sure if I want to go that route.

    Yup. It’s a real shame that no one has that really “Killer” set of boxes. If you could combine elements of Lboxxes, T-Locs, and T-staks, you’d be all set.

    Stack Like T-locs
    Big and tough like LBoxes
    Permenant drawer options like T-staks, without losing the removeable drawers of Lboxxes
    I’m sure if we really wanted to we could come up with an almost perfect system……Til someone though of something else 6 months after production started.

    Just got my first L-Boxx 1 today and here’s how it looks — all 12v
    PS22, PS32, FL12, battery charger and extra batteries.
    Not much room left for a bit box but that’s next to source.

    You can never have too many batteries. I count 6.

    That’s looking really nice. You have everything in one box. And like @davper said, you can never have to many batteries.

    Never too many, for sure.

    Thanks, Brian.

    I think I may have contracted “container sickness”. Last night I found myself browsing through the Boxx section of the rewards program over and over again. LOL

    Oh oh watch out once you get a few you can’t stop. They are very nice I will say that. I prefer to store my Bosch tools in the L-Boxx rather than the soft bags most seem to come in.

    Here you go @madman_us

    I made the foam insert by heating up the hole saws with a torch and cutting/melting out the foam. Works great but took some time.

    Oh man that made me cringe a bit, hope you didn’t get them hot enough to de-harden the saw teeth.

    Not even close. You don’t need to get them very hot to melt the foam. Didn’t even touch the paint. 🙂

    LOL I roasted that guy trying to go through some concrete board. It started on fire! (the hole saw, not the board!)

    It’s just a medium density foam I got cheap online.

    i have the same PC brad nailer, last time i used it my hands turned black. the handle started to disintegrate. i think it cant handle +40 degrees lol. i just cut it off with a knife and washed my hands like 4 times to get that stuff off

    If you’re going through thin concrete board like a 5/16 hardie board, I have a good system for that we always use on the jobsite.

    Great idea @thedude306, I have an old socket set that I got foam for and was wondering how to set the sockets in the foam. I suck at using a utility knife.

    I have a bunch of old hole saws tat have now found a purpose in life.

    @dirtywhiteboy When you get a chance fire up a new thread about cutting/drilling hardie board!

    Thanks all.

    Not even close. You don’t need to get them very hot to melt the foam. Didn’t even touch the paint. :-)

    Couldn’t you just use the hole saw by hand and twist it into the foam to cut the opening?
