While I found the article interesting, I have to admit that I’m a little lukewarm to the idea of a rainbow toolbox. I keep my wrenches in an organizer, so it’s not that tough for me to find the proper size. Of course, in a tool bag, this could be a lifesaver as you often end up rummaging around quite a bit to find what you need.
Either way, it’s an interesting read.
