Toolbox Cover

Sometime ago I moved my tools to a new rolling toolbox/tool chest combo. I was looking for something to keep dust and bird droppings, etc. off the toolbox (it's inside a pole barn that serves as our garage and workshop), so I asked my wife to make a cover for it. Here's the result. I think it turned out very nice.

It doesn't need to fit into the saddlebag, it's got wheels of its own . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Toolbox Cover

That's a beauty Howard ... but I don't expect anything less from Lisa. Talented Gal!

A bit of bad news though. Do I see some final drive fluid coming out of that right wheel there? Daggone it!

Good one, Joe - and a good catch. I'm relieved to say it's just run-off from when I hosed down a lawn mower to get grass clippings off of it. I parked it in the barn after letting it drain outside and some leftover water made that stain on the floor.

Guess I dodged a bullet with that one.

Hey, speaking of which - the next time we do a tech session at my place I hope to roll out the red carpet for the guys: I've got a lift and a tire change now, and have added a lot of tools to what was a meager collection. I still have no skills, but anyone who wants to should be able to do some serious damage to a bike.

Ha. I told Lisa about this comment. She just rolled her eyes.
