It is no secret that auto mechanics have a ton of tools. Some mechanics keep tools in a standard tool box. Others keep their tools in a mix of tool box and roll cart. I personally love using a roll cart or roll kart as I prefer. It gives great flexibility, and mobility.
This is how I personally have set up my kart. It is a setup I have had for years and years. That does not mean I am saying other ways are wrong, or my way is better. This is what works for me. If there is a brand of tool I use that you don’t like, that is cool. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
