I did not want to carry around my tools in several  broken plastic boxes anymore and decided to get a proper metal cantilever box.

I have had it for an year and while  it's just  a box, it is well made, strong, good looking and it is going to last. Well worth the price.

I got one pretty much like that from the inlaws years ago and its still going, currently full of bicycle spares/tools. A bit of wd40 every few years and it'll last forever I think.

I got a very strong cantilever toolbox for £2 from the local recycling tip recently, the chap even gave me a couple of pliers/snips too. Told me he used to work in a scrappies and make a few bitsa triumphs up back in the day.

Can't have too many toolboxes.

Yes, you need somewhere to put all of the tools. I think it might be the wrong way round if you have to buy new tools to fill up the box :)

I actually did have too many tool boxes.
I had to downsize a bit and i ended up with spare.
The trouble with these big red ones is i over fill them and am constantly whacking them into my legs.
