    99 with the tools included? or just the red things?

    Oh and sorry... :oops: But it is in my workshop!!

    Best place for a Pirelli 'Ditchfinder' is where it is now, not on a car ;)

    Is that all the tools you have :P

    No. I have one of everything in the Snap-On catalogue (including Boeing brake caliper retractors), but I didn't want to be responsible for the world's first mass suicide through terminal jealousy.

    So I just posted a photo of my cheap set (I was going to say "photo of my tools" but that's not the sort of thing to post on the internet...!)

  • You've got some red paint on your fence. You've also got a big box obscuring said fence.

    If those were my spanners they'd all be randomly strewn about every shelf under other random tools within a day or 2. Good luck keeping them orderly!

    A useful tool...
  • dudes you sad people if you wanna see a big box :shock: , full of tools (mostly snap on), i shall take a pic of mine at work lol.

  • i believe people like them buy "sets of tools" (purely for show) in packs of 100, so that people get the impression they can fix their bike. i just use my lbs' tools

    Ah, that'll be why everything is all shiney now...
    and also why it's outside (by the looks of things) - probably by the side of the road so passers by can have a good look at what a "real" tool box looks like...

    Dave - you'll have to get a red bike now to match the box :wink:

    Now THAT's a tool box.
    Durable hard black plastic case, roomy, light and portable, neutral colour - fashionable in any season, rust proof and cheaper than the plastic bag in it.

  • but surely the hacksaw frames the picture?!?!?!
