Hi Jonny

Big issue is FOD (foreign object damage) with aircraft. Tools going astray in an aircraft can be catastrophic. Nice tool box and something I would buy (but doubt I could afford with that spec).

I am ashamed to say I couldn't resist James, but it is for proffesional use so tax deductable, and I really needed something like it. ;) still hurt a bit though.

WHEREVER do you fit that onboard your own boat, David??? I would think that Luke would be pushed to find space for it! :naughty::naughty::naughty:

Plenty of room in the Lazarette John, even with the outboard, beer and loads of other stuff(I wouldn't sacrifice the beer space) it's 9' 6" X 3' 9" so there will be room left for a liferaft too if it wasn't already mounted in the loft, all that said it's for work really. It's often a long walk around pontoons or a canal bank.

Peli 0450 Mobile Tool Chest

Internal Dimensions:L522xW279xD321

Was £665.52Now £434.69 Ex VAT

Thats it I'll stick with my old Apple crate and cheap tools for the boat! OK! I lied I actually keep my tools in one of those plastic boxes with a lid and I never buy cheap tools unless it's for a one off use, I also save all those silica gel bags (I get them free from my local funiture store) and put then in my tools box, so far none have ever gone rusty, I love tools and Gadgets but unless like Antares it was for trade use I can't see any use for it on a boat,, When it comes to home use I always buy the best tools, but for on the boat I go mid range, I learnt the hard way about having expensive tools when working on site, turn your back and they got nicked, I used to use expensive cordless tools on site, but found some cheap ones in Lidl's made by Parkside, 18v drill/driver was around £39 and the spare battery's £10 and so far it has outlasted all the other drills I've had, the only one that came close was my Milwaukee but at over £250 a go I know what tools I'll buy in future,,,

I need to invest in some tools for the business and if times were very good, I'd go for one without hesitation.

Prob is I need a new battery SDS drill plus impact driver first :naughty:
