Anarchist’s 2016 Gift Guide, Day 8: A Trusco Toolbox



trusco3_img_0204

I’ve labored out of an 18th-century-style software chest since
1997 or so, however I nonetheless love a very good steel toolbox. They’re
nice for transferring instruments to a jobsite or storing a devoted
set of wrenches or a socket set.

The plastic or sheet-metal toolboxes at house facilities do
nothing for me. The plastic breaks and the sheet steel is
skinny and bends whenever you take a look at it too arduous. This yr I
found the Japanese-made Trusco toolboxes, and I’m in
heaven.

I’ve a ST-350-B that I exploit for storing the machinist instruments
I want for engaged on my machines at my store in my basement.
It’s a jewel. The translucent blue end is sturdy and
stunning. Every little thing opens and shuts like one thing made
with care 100 years in the past.

And but the
ST-350 is less than $50
. If the worth had been $200, I’d
say: Yup, that value is about proper.

Trusco makes a big line of packing containers, from the large
ST-3500
right down to the lovable
T-150s
to your automotive’s trunk. They was tough to
discover within the U.S. market, however they’re now changing into extra
frequent. Seize some earlier than everybody else finds out.
