From the dirt to the sag in the bag that tells you that no one gingerly carries this thing around, this picture captures the very essence of “working man.”  This bag stands up to tough treatment and it’ll most likely be in the field with the guys for the foreseeable future.  Ghb624 gives us the lowdown on his find.

Another for my ongoing survey of toolboxes and tool containers people use either for their job, hobby or do-it-yourself work. This one was being used by a crew from the city. They were replacing a sewer line under the street.

It’s not Norm Abram’s method of carrying tools, that’s for sure. (Even less would it be Martha Stewart’s!) No, this is the Real World way of operating — going from jobsite to jobsite several times a day, working in all kinds of weather, and not worrying about getting stuff dirty.

This one’s meant for work, not display.

We can’t put it any better than that — well done, sir.

    well the last interview I read with Norm Abram, he apparently likes to use coffee cans around the shop to store misc tools. just thought I’d put that out there as it would be more jobsite vs shop. my dad was a landscaper/contractor and would use empty 5 gallon plant pots and milk crates for small tools and parts because they were cheep and tough.
