    I like that Jerry, where can I get one.

    I have too many tools, but I use almost everyone of them, if I can find them.

    No John,<br>
    What we need is that replicatore thingy from Star Trek TNG. You would just take it with you and ask it to make whatever you need. Just say Hammer, stilletto 22 oz and whoop der it is. No more runs to the parts store or lumber yard either. 2 x 12 DF #2 23 ft long. Whoop der it is.<br>
    I am just as likely to have this thing as a fleet of Promaster vans. :)

    haha yes! THIS is the future of tool storage indeed! AKA no more tool storage!
    BUT… what do you do with the tool once you use it and no longer need it? Do you poof it back out of existence?

    And John L – I know you are kidding somewhat, but would it be worth hiring somebody to do something like that – keep things organized per say? haha

    I have had a few guys organize my tools before and within a month they were all messed up again .

    That stuff looks terrific, I had an erector set when I was a kid. It was one of my favorite toys/tools. Maybe it was in my blood already but I think it gave me great inspiration to get into the field I chose for a career.

    As far as organizing your tools, Once you do and make sure to put everything back where ya got it a few times it becomes habit and you’ll know where everything is after a while. To the point of you don’t even have to think about where something is, You’ll just go right to it.

    John L, Have you ever had to take apart a birdhouse cuz you left a tool inside one? LOL

    haha Boyd that would be a sad day for John L!!!

    I was thinking earlier today wondering if there existed companies who pre-arranged and built/designed (or custom-built) trailers and work vans in such a way for particular applications: specialists or generalists… I think it would be quite fun to design a plan for a nook and cranny for every item that a ____ might need/want… Just like the same way that Mobile Shop has their ultimate maintenance cart labeled and arranged in an efficient way….
    http://www.mobile-shop.com/system_components.php

    and yet, they offer the cart empty (so you can fill with your tools) or pre-filled with tools… In the same way, offer the trailer with the racking and shelving and bins (sure, sortimo is similar here) OR with all the bins FILLED – with bosch tools, miter saw, table saw, nails et etc

    I always drill all the holes first before I put the insides in .That way I don,t lose any drill bits inside.

    I might get some ideas from a pre-designed layout but I would probably end up changing it to fit my own needs and habits

    #53567

    For sure. I am thinking that having a base layout that then you could customize as each guy needs would be sweet…

    Here are two more awesome examples of tool storage options in trailers:

    Wow ok, I see your point, I could get some good ideas from that set up. And maybe wouldn’t have the need to change anything ๐Ÿ™‚

    #53577

    My thoughts exactly Boyd! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Now, the tricky thing (in my mind) is coming up with helpful layouts for guys who would obviously have the skills to have a sweet setup but can’t afford to pay somebody else to do the work (and sell it for good profit)…. (for these guys, it might be ‘helpful’ to sell plans of sorts for layouts for various sized trailers based on various trades… since time is still important to these guys and taking the time to think through for them how generally to set up and arrange your tools in a trailer in an efficient way might be helpful)

    versus having pre-manufactured (per-say) trailers for guys who also obviously know how to custom build their own trailer, but out of time savings (which is money to some) would rather just buy it and have it totally ready…

    And then have the option to not just have the trailer already setup, but have the tools in there as well – for each particular phase or task – be it roofing, framing, etc etc… These are the sorts of business ventures I am dreaming of ๐Ÿ˜›

    maybe I need to talk with FastCap about these ideas ๐Ÿ˜› and not put them all over the internet ๐Ÿ™ haha

    And I suppose the other thing of note regarding mobile tool storage/usage is the massive difference between vans/trucks/trailers and hauling material versus tools… Perhaps one could assume the material would just be defaulted to the truck bed and then dedicate the tools to the trailer OR vice-versa… if you have a big enough truck and go the knapheide route, you could store all your tools on the truck and then ‘neatly’ organize materials from wood to screws…

    I think the L-Boxx should come out with a base system that could be used to strap the boxes down in the bed of a truck. I donโ€™t know what design it would be but I think it would be a great addition to the line.

    Perhaps even some sort of sliding mechanism where you clip it on and then you can easily โ€˜pushโ€™ it further back into the bed of the truck via some sort of track that the boxxes slide on. That way you can stack a couple of l-boxxes, put them onto the track, and then easily slide them to the back of the truck (while keeping them secure within the truck)

    I found the part you could use to cheaply use as the ‘base’ for your sliding l-boxx storage setup: http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-L-RACK-T-Top-Handle-L-RACK-S/dp/B00E1RVT30/

    As many of you well know by now, I am all about combining storage setups because of lack of space. This might be the most thorough, well thought out design for an ultimate workbench of sorts. Amazing.

    I have had a similar idea but couldn’t ever visualize how to do it. That bench is AWESOME

    That’s a neat setup. Everything you need to build it are listed out. No excuses!

    Glad to know I am not crazy in thinking it is a sweet setup. Glad to benefit from his wisdom and labor (and all of yours as well).

    Though I think Jerry and his investors and the happiest ๐Ÿ˜›

    That work bench is super sweet, I’m gonna have to build me one of those with loose change when I can get it.

    #56743

    It really isn’t that bad if you already have the wood on hand and/or you can modify some of the cost of some of the items he has on the list – you don’t need to get that nice of casters unless you really need them, for example….
    He breaks down the price per item on his site
