This is one of my favorite characters...soo much that I do have a poster my best friend gave me:
Well speaking of work, I am almost done with a project I started at work.
As those know me know that I work in the aviation field, well I have a tool box that followed me from Ford Motor company and I took it to work where I am at now. I will show a pic of what it looks like when I first had it at work.
Last year I was working a lot of overtime working the RON's(Remain overnights) and we would have a bit of "downtime" waiting for the airplane to come in. Rather than sit and swill coffee( nothing wrong with that) I decided to to a toolbox makeover. I straightened out some of the damage, sanded it down to bare metal and painted it.
This is what it looked like after I was done last year. Went from being the worst looking toolbox in the hanger, to looking not so bad.
Well This year I decided to build a "Side box" rather than buy one. Using scrap metal I started fabricating this...
It is heavy, I used quite a bit of "Alclad" Aluminum T-7075-T6 .063 thick or greater. Rivits and Highloks. I am overall pleased with it. I figured out a few things I could have done differently...but this project was bigger than I figured it would be.
I still gotta build a "push" handle on it, but I have to see what shows up in the scrap bin for me to use......
