    I like the 'shop-camo' paint scheme.

    Nice cart! I'm feeling left behind here......:cry:

    I keep most of my main tools in one toolbox and lug it outside if I am working in the driveway (or to the pick-n-pull when harvesting car parts). It weighs a lot, good thing they have wheelbarrows at the pick-n-pull. I keep a bucket that I place tools in as I use them to take stuff apart as I know I'll need them when putting it back together. Individual sockets go in the bucket, not the whole rail of sockets. When I'm done, I empty the bucket-o-tools back into the tool box or where I got them from in the garage. Rolling platform would be real nice, but I'd have to find a place to store it in my full garage though.

    I use a 5gl bucket with one of those slip on tool pouches. It's excellent, I load it with job specific tools and empty it when I'm finished.

    My work cart...
    Ive got most of the stuff i use on every car in here. Wrenches in the top drawer-metric. Ive got flex head and solid head gear wrenches along with regular wrenches. Bottom is almost all my air stuff. In the top ive got 3 socket rails that stick by magnet. Those keep my impacts. Got a magnet tray that gets my notmal sockets as they collect. Otherwise i wouldnt be able to find them as the clutter grows thru the day:D

    Good to know I'm not the only one like that.;) As I complete a vehicle repair, I put away the tools I won't need again on the next trip to the toolbox for a different tool. Preparing food, same as you, clean up pots and pans as you cook and there is less to clean later.(y)

    I like all the ingenious variations of everyone's tool carts shown here............from storage to just enough room for tools to a mobile work center , everyone has a favorite that suits their needs..................My favorite cart is a little of everything......2'x4' with 1/4" plate on top plus a vise , roll it to the job inside or out........beat on things , grind , weld , disassemble or fabrication is only left to your imagination.............the Miller 211 Mig permanently rides unneath as will as the 15" chop saw when not in use...........

    Careful, your 13mm and 14mm wrenches are almost touching. :D

    If you look at my cart there is a piece of 1 1/2" foam left over from my old pole barn insulation. I use it when i need to kneel on the floor
