    I went to a garage sale and found this tool box. It had some tools in it that I wanted and was marked $20. It had obviously sat in water up to the knobs on the bottom drawer. I brought it home and when I started cleaning it up I found the key. It was marked Kennedy. I was only familiar with the brown wrinkle finish Kennedy boxes, I had never seen a silver/grey one. I have a fondness for Kennedy boxes having made my living out of one in an earlier life at a Jag dealership. Needless to say, it got a clean up and repaint, as near original as I could get. Now it holds my spare parts and a few GPA specific tools. The common wrenches, screwdrivers etc. hang on the wall.

    A coworker gave me a totally rusted out Coleman 252

    So I cut the parts well out of the fount and made a small bits container to go in the box.

    Awesome @IvanN , thanks for sharing. I need to order one of those kits from the Fettle Box. I just ordered a three way tool for SRV replacement. I went to change the fuel cap seal on my recently acquired 99, only to find out I don't have any tool to replace the SRV pip. Doh...

    This is just the box. Not the 6'x8' workbench piled too high or the shelving with the fuel lol.

    Thanks for posting Cookie. I wish I had a shop, haha. I still do most of my work at the kitchen table.

    @The Warrior, I have got the most out of the FettleBox kit! It has had what was needed for almost every stove I have fettled. When it comes to tools, my method has always been to buy new tools as I need them, some basic tools before of course, but then I always feel justified in the purchase.

    @IvanN , that kit will be mine. I order kits as I buy the stove, which is great, but then there's the wait. Be nice to already have the stuff.

    My tool buying has been fairly steady, haha. I now have 2 NRV tools, the articulating jet tool, and just yesterday ordered the SRV tool.

    I envy all of you who have large and well organized work stations. Mine is small and crammed, but luckily it has a few accessories that brings "ambience".

    @IvanN Thanks but to be honest it was my casting and reloading bench until last week hence why it is so clean lol. I need to move that five gallons of denatured alcohol (white can on the right) down to a lower level so that it doesn't get mistaken for kero (black can next to it and the jugs). I'm in the process of making a fuel shed with an automatic fire suppression system. Once I get that finished up I'll make my run for some JP1 at the airport. I have two stainless 180 gallon fuel tanks that I would like to fill :content:. I am an@l about labeling my kero/parrafin and sorting it by it's flash point so that I know what not to use in a flat wick lantern. I also mark an can of white gas with the date when I first open it. The can in the front with the label visible is always the open can or container. I need to figure out where I'm gonna put that 15 gal drum for kero too. All of the jugs of Klean-Heat are going into it soon once I get a water seperater and insulated it from the floor and air.

    +1 on staffan's rig...man I like the look of that

    @cottage hill bill Man I like that tool box

    Ha ha, thanks @IvanN and @The Warrior

    @Tony Press , swag is a word with multiple meaning. The less flattering one is suggesting i knicked something from the office. Something I would never do...

    Tony, I mean the clocks, and tin signs lit from behind and sales posters. Maybe an American term only?
