When I was working, I had a small tool kit I bought from Walmart. I was tired of asking building maintenance folks to fix stuff when I could do it myself much faster and better. When we bought the coach, I just brought it home and put in in the coach. The only things I have added are a pair of channel locks, vice-grips, a small drill (12v Bosch-excellent), and some bits. I also have a box of miscellaneous hardware, electrical connectors, multi-meter. So far, so good.

yeah...it is a "knock-off, but looks decent) Homak box.
Thanks TJ. Just ordered the knock off. I'm doing a purge and the biggest mess I have is the bay where my tools are. I can't find anything. This looks like it will meet my needs perfectly. 😀

I hope it works as well for you as mine does for me.

Sadly, I must report that Kennedy has discontinued my favorite 1022B cantilever toolbox. The Homak BW00210220 "knock-off" mentioned in an earlier post in this thread appears to be the closest available substitute. It looks like a quality unit, though I have no personal experience with it.

The Kennedy 1022B I purchased a while back was, apparently, part of the final run of that particular toolbox. Kennedy does remain in business, however, and still produces other quality toolbox models.

I have had Kennedy machinist toolboxes for more than 50 years and they have served me very well. I'm glad I got one of the final production run 1022Bs, but it is like losing an old friend knowing that particular model will no longer be available. RIP 1022B!
