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
30 degree/60 degree wrenches for hydraulics in the top drawer. I use a lot of 1/4 inch drive stuff sockets etc.
Crows feet are a must in tight places and to be able to torque fluid lines.
Some of the odd pliers are Safety wire pliers for twisting lock wire and cleco pliers for installing sheet metal pins or as we call them clecos.
Screwdrivers and such
Sheet metal layout tools and measuring equipment
Rivet "sets" for reacting solid rivets.Some tungsten bucking bars for forming the shop head on the rivet tail.Very dense metal and heavy gives good reaction to buck the rivet.
Air drills, grinders and sanders,rivet guns.

i see you are a neat freak. no black grease on nothing.
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.
ya that looks nice kevin the way you got it set up and ya i understand about the missing tool thing someone on my son-in-laws crew misplaced a wrench while we were there at lemoore air base and they had to stay until it was found
