I’ve been working out of my old tool box for almost 20 years. It was a great tool box, but it was time to move on. I talk about the need for this in one of my recent videos.

I Need a New Tool Box!:

Well, I tried to get in touch with Mac, but unfortunately I never heard back form them. Things didn’t turn out so bad though.

I saved up for a long time and it paid off. I got a smoking deal on this Snap-on KRL1023 I found on Craigs List. Half price, and it’s BRAND NEW. Sure it was in someone elses garage, but it looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. The stainless steel top still had the plastic on it! A deal I could not pass up for sure.

Here’s a link to the tool box:

BTW, I did a special video for Premium Members of my website touring the new box with tools in it.
