I have been trying for years to find a few of these to carry the small tools and do low stuff like baseboards...

I have one of those plastic rubbermade type containers (Big enought for a kid to climb into), it has wheels, these I have it organized with everything I use. Learned a lesson this weekend about organization. Finished a whole house re-paint Thursday, went directly to another week long job the next day. Normally I re-load my box ( on the first day everything is organized, by the last day stuff is everywhere) after a big job, this time I did not! Man I spent a lot of time chasing my tail, making 2 trips to SW to pick supplies I normally keep in my box......Lesson learned, re-load my truck after every job!

I use a plastic rolling tool box (lasted 3 years so far). It is about 24" H x 20" W and 14" deep. Its has built in bungee cords on the sides that I use to hold a small extension pole, a roller spinner, caulking gun and cages. The top is a detachable tool box that holds my sanding gear, Onetime, scrapers, knife, 5/1, paddles, wire brush, hammer, a few finish nails and punch, small prybar, packs of switch plate screws, wall plugs, picture hooks, marretts, multi-driver, allen keys, hand cleaner, etc. In the drawers I put in my brushes and putty sticks etc.., and the bottom folds down (out) and I carry a mud pan, knives, small baggies of fast set 20/45, tape, caulk, dust mask, sleeves, whizzes, garbage bags, 300w bulb, etc. I use the top of it as a work bench to support painting trim etc.

All my drops are folded in a large tote with a couple of rolls of 2mil poly. I keep an extension cord wrapped around the handle to use with a pig tail and 300w service bulb, or for fans.


Its not as heavy as it sounds!

Sounds real similar to what I use. The container tops I use to sit tools and paint on when I am working on baseboards. The big container top is great for pouring and holding paint etc.

I have a super rugged toolbok that I can sit on at lunch, stand on if I really need to and keeps water out for all my hand tools, throw my drill in there too.

I run a couple rubbermaids sorted between rollers and more paint application type tools, one for sundries, one as a spray kit. The lids are great for pouring paint over in a pinch.

It works well and keeps things well organized, never have to wonder where something is

I'm thinking about getting one of these. Video


If I got two or three I could probably micro-organize (is that a word) most the tools in my van (painting, carpentry, power tools, etc.)

I have 3 rolling 2-part tool boxes. one of the boxes has the brushes, sleeves, etc; another tools and repair supplies; the third has cleaning supplies and first aid kit, respirators etc. Carry poles on their own and all drops in an open rubbermaid bin...love the rolling boxes...use the tops to stand on when necessary and they are great to sit on and have lunch...what's more, they fit in the back of my 4runner nicely and I can keep them neatly in my garage!

Wagz, I just bought that Stanley fatmax box, I am setting it up today. Pretty cool, not as big as it looked online though. That being said, I carry too much anyways, using it will make me travel lighter,lol!

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

I use totes. One for all my sanding equipment, one for masking equipment, one for spray equipment, etc etc. I also have a fat max toolbox that I keep my most regularly used small tools in. It's a lot to carry around to smaller jobs, but i'm never short on equipment when I need it!
