Upon Kens suggestion of Googling Hand tool Chest / Cabinet this is what I came up with.

This one only cost $1,975.40

This one is the low price of $1,591.91

and both of them have NO tools included.





So I am thinking you guys with talent need to build and sell some Nice ones.

I seen that one too, read the comments and laughed. That is one thing I would not buy from them.



Even with my poor skills I could do better.

So, in a century, we've come full circle. Hammacher Schlemmer (still in business, since 1848) used to offer tool cabinets, toolkits, and, if I recall correctly, workbenches. Here's one example from the very early 20th century:



The closest they come now is offering Gerstner tool rollaways/boxes, and you can bet few of them get used in shops.

Why you would need four identical eggbeater drills I'm not sure, but a hint is offered in the company description: it started out in the educational supplies market. The list of tools they'll provide ( here ) is kind of odd, predominantly metalworking. I suspect they think their market is basic shop classes, probably in elementary schools; and probably in private schools, where the tuition will support a silly thing like this.

But Hey, shop now, and you can get 20 issues of Martha Stewart Living, which would be a Good Thing.

Arlin,

I was in the same boat as you - tools piling up faster than I had room for. My solution was THIS. Very non traditional but very effective. Holds all my planes &amp; chisels and I haven't touched the bottom drawer yet, and it solved my problem right now. It's only money. I got mine during a Christmas sale for about $200 less.

It works for me. I have no clue (yet) what wheel chair folks need. The reach from knees underneath to visible while sitting is very narrow indeed.
Thanks,  Curt

I seem to remember Lie Nielson selling one a few years back for some where between $8k and $10k.

I use mainly metal rollaways and top boxes, too; but our humidity is relatively low and fairly stable.
