FILLING THE NEW TOOL CABINETS
1 Rob’s old toolboxes and cabinets were crammed full of tools, so he decided to see if he could store all of them in one large three-tier cabinet from Draper Tools. 2 The base of the new cabinet sits on substantial swivel castors, which are secured to the underside with several bolts. The middle drawer sits on top of the base, followed by the top box. 3 Despite its overall size, the top box and middle drawer can be lifted off. Rob decided to drill some holes through their bases and the adjacent cabinet to enable him to bolt them all together. Each cabinet is supplied with a lock. 4 While all three parts of the cabinet are now bolted together and their respective drawers can be locked, there’s nothing stopping the whole unit being wheeled away, so Rob anchored it to the floor with a security chain, lock and shackle. 5 It was time to transfer all of Rob’s tools into their new home. The spanners drawer looked a little messy, but was soon tidied with a few crocodile teeth storage racks. These were bought from the Classic Car and Restoration Show at the NEC. 6 Rob decided to keep his old cabinets and move them to the rear of his inspection pit, where he could store a selection of spanners, hammers and pry bars, along with his rustproofing products.
