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



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.



Hammers



Air drills, grinders and sanders,rivet guns.



mirrors, flashlights

Default More stuff

Torque wrenches



More sheet metal tools,roto-broaches, countersink cages, rivet sets for hand squeezing rivets, deburring tools.



Slow air drill for stainless, and a pneumatic skin saw for precisely cutting sheet metal, similar to a miniature skill saw.

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.
