Talking about my DIY, PVC tool tube, there.

Crazy Jake I always wrap tools in a brand NEW white cotton T-shirt. I have used the T-shirt more times than the tools… once to bandage a nice cut.. (needed a new one) and once to take off my mud covered gear and slip the T on for a burger.

Another Question

These are all some very good ideas, as well as the PM's I received. I'll be sure to let you guys know what I come up with.

One more question: Does 20" seem to be the approximate length you guys use when mounting the ABS tube up-front and low?

Thanks again,

Chuck

NH Thumper I have a pair of cheap cotton gloves ($1.79/pr) that I wrap around the stuff that rattles. Then I can wear them to protect my hands (or to keep them clean).
I also put my sockets in an old sock.

Must admit, those Viewtainers are nifty little things, nearing the "perfect" category for carrying tools in a tube. I like 'em.

Cabrito I have a wolfman tool roll that fits nicely in mine. I also use some small pouches that zip up.

planalp It's hard to find the perfect tool wrap. I use one from Sears. I put too much crap in it to be able to use the Velcro straps around it when I get it rolled up, but I like all the little pockets in it for small stuff. As long as I'm careful sliding it in and out, I don't lose anything.

The sock is a great idea. I've heard other people just wrap their tools up in a towel or something along those lines.
