It doesn't work for everyone just works for me... I know where 90 percent of tools are and 100% of material.. mine are mostly soft cloth bags.. I use sandwich baggies inside bags to organize the little things inside bags..

Here and there things go midding but it's easier for when I'm working with someone to know everything is in bag..

I refuse to let other guys bring hand tools on my truck as that's how my tools dissapear

Not to mention i end up dumping it out to find somthing. Ends up being a catch all. Just got tierd of the bucket life lol












Sewer juice, tampons and roaches, what's wrong with that?.....LOL

Reminds me of the time that I pulled a W/C up off the floor and about a hundred roaches were running for cover. I was doing the Irish jig trying to stomp all those fast-moving little suckers.........and to keep them from running up my leg into my pants....LOL



I have a question, what are you doing if you're getting poop water and roaches regularly into your tool bucket? Do you do a lot of crawl space work?

There isn’t a lot of crawl spaces in the city(Toronto), most homes have basements.

I bought some buckets from Lowe's they are called "commander" with the yellow top and black bucket they are the UV protected storage type buckets for like $5.- apiece. The sun is always killing my buckets. These should last I have had some of these storage bins out in the son for years and they are still good.

why buy when you have a free supply of spackle buckets??? upstate there is a yogurt factory that throws out hundreds of 3.5 gallon buckets with nice snap on lids and some heavy duty 5 gallon buckets no lids....theres always free 5 gallon buckets floating around...it takes years of direct sunlight to dry up and crack a 5 gallon bucket that arent UV protected...
