So I have been going through my toolbox and rearranging stuff again.
Found some organizers when I was at Lowes getting stuff so the kids can finally hardwire the home network instead of using WiFi.
Boy is this going to cost me a few bucks that I can't spend on the boat since we can't take it out due to the shutdown
I knew I had a mixture of mostly Craftsman stuff, but this will be an opportunity to unhoard and get rid of the cheap no-name and rusted wrenches and random sockets. Didn't realize how many random tools have gone missing, and buying individually is more expensive each, but I just can't bring myself to buying whole new socket sets.

Metric wrenches have holders

But the SAE don't.

Of all the surprises it was the missing 1/2 inch combo wrench that caught me off guard.
Realizing that I'm using more Metric than SAE, even though I mostly have Chevys. Even the 29 YO Chevy half ton is metric.

Oh Great, Justi, you just brought up a project I was going to have my grandsons help me with but had gone by the wayside with all this quarantining crap. Now I'm going to feel guilty if I don't get to it myself.

I did a very small repair on Tina's GMC Terrain a week ago and was surprised to find it's metric. What else have we given up to those Brits? JK.

I have metric and SAE tools in most of my roll around box but they're scattered and need to be sorted. If I work it right that will take at least an entire afternoon. Today's vehicles have gotten way beyond my mechanical ability so when a repair is needed my handiest tool is my phone. Same with the boat. It's the pits getting old! Crap!

Oh well, I guess when I'm finished with changing out some of my underground sprinkler heads and adjusting others I guess that'll be my next project.

Organization looks great.

I took the easy way out & bought a new Husky 220 pc set that comes in box where each piece has its own home.

Works awesome & they always have good sales after Christmas
