wow, wish mine was that organized, mine is a lower with 15 drawers, packed to the gills, and an upper with 5 drawers, and top lid full of sockets.. Unfortunately, I left that one at my dad's, and my cousin and him aren't very good at returning the tools to the box, and when they do, not in the right place. To add insult to injury, one of the barn cats peed all over inside and rusted the nonsense out of everything.. Shouldataken it all with me, but it was big and heavy. Suppose, shoulda locked it at least..
Got another smaller one started at my house, much better ogainzed, but not near as full. Don't have another $10K to put into it.
I always wonder what happened t my great grand pa on my moms side's tool box, he was an old school carpenter from back when carpenter meant more than just nailing boards together.. He was from England, wonder if his kit looked anything like this?
The greatest want of the world is the want of men- men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by it's right name, men who's concience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.

My grandfather left his tool chest to me in his will. It looked an awful lot like that.
Little toggles to hold the saws in place, holes for all the screwdrivers and drill bits. He was a cabinetmaker for 40 years, and did very nice work. The tool chest shows his skill ( and his packrattiness!)

I had a Campy full kit as pictured I bought it from a store going out many years ago for penniess on the dollar. I sold it for a grand profit the first time I left the retail industry. BTW a Campy kit is 3-4g's alone they are all precision equipment.
I'll snap a picture of my travel box for you but in the mean time here is draw porn.( this is prior to getting my equipto 6 draw bench. The old pro craftsman combination wrenches were switched out shortly after this picture for snapon.
