Bigger is better

Upper Deerfield Twp,  NJ

While in NJ, Leonard decided we (he)  really needed a different tool box.  So out with the old.  (Sold it on Craigslist for $100.00.)



And let's make something BIGGER!!

First was a trip to a local steel, hardware, MAN store.   The original building.


They recently went BIGGER too with this addition.


Len bought the aluminum and had them bend it to his specifications.


He is an excellent welder but no longer has the equipment to weld aluminum.    He paid a welder to do it for him.



Len added hinges:


And locks


Then a divider for strength and convenience.


Is this thing HUGE???


It is now in place in the truck bed and loaded.



A good note - we emptied two Rubbermade containers from the basement of the fifth wheel.   Yup, this man always is thinking of his next "project".  Scary!

Wow, it almost looks like a walk - in tool box. I don't think you can ever have a big enough box for tools. There are so many that just won't fit!! Nice job.
