Default An Aircraft Mechanics tool box

hey everybody just wanted to show and tell about my tool box and how mechanics work in aviation to control our tools. Nothing worse than loosing a tool. We can't let it happen so we inventory our tools and equipment continuously.The tools are shadowed so when one is out of place it is easy to tell which tool it is that is missing. A lot of military guys will be familiar with this Instant inventory. My tool box at home that I use on my truck looks much different if you know what I mean

2001 Matco Custom trim

I would almost expect it to be neater.

I've toured Gulfstream's facilities before; every tool has a cut-out in the boxes, and the tools that aren't in the boxes are stored in a locked safety cage and checked out one at a time. If anybody looses a tool they'll look until they find it. Apparently FOD is a big concern around million dollar Rolls Royce engines.
