Evening all,

I'm just about to start my first job which is a maintainance job in a hospital and need to buy a tool bag. I've been told that I only need to take the basics so therefore only need a small/medium size bag.

What do you lot use and what would you reccomend?

Hi Stean
I use a few sorts and boxes but just got the new mastercart from B & Q its £29.99 but its great for long walks and as your be working in a hospital might be worth a look has 3 wheels so you can either pull it with the handle or roll it standing up.
Regards
Kung.

if you take the central divider out i should think the fluke should fit easily.

whatever you buy, make sure its ballistic nylon!! this is the most strongest man made fibre available. i have had three tool bags...2 cheapo and now a dewalt bag. they do various sizes and are on ebay very cheap! just buy fromtrusted seller as some can be fakes. if original, it will be all in original packaging and dewalt authentic tags etc. this is the stuff that all the tradesmans trousers are made of too! dickies and snickers etc use ballistic nylon. i can vouch that my bag and trousers are 18 months old and are mint all round! hope this helps. p.s - the extra tenner will save you massively! buy a cheapo and i garauntee that your hole saws and pad saw etc will be bursting out everywhere within days! it will look like a large tea bag

Stean I was working on a millitary base an found that the CK toolroll model T1718 and a small multimeter covered most things and if its a bigger job get a decent case.

If i can stick my nose in this one from B&Q, although is a bit more expensive is what i use.

The handle moves out of the way so you can get to your tools in the main body of the bag.

Jason.S I also bought myself this bag and i have to say it is excellent as it is easy to locate tools and easy to see when they are missing so i could not rate it highly enough, best buy i ever made

I like the ck. Good for keeping organised - I hate rumaging around for tools and since I've had it I've never left a tool on site
