The Dreaded "Toolbox" Thread

Post by Smilodon on Mon Jul 01, 2013 6:34 am

In a meager attempt to keep some dialog going (since I haven't been able to do much worth talking about lately for one reason or another), I decided to follow up on my original comments after J.P.'s "Ferrari" toolbox pic.

Thought it might be amusing to see some of the stuff folks use to work on their bike.  And the stickers of course.  Toolboxes and stickers go together like... Er... Two things that go together.



Toolboxes... The black one is new, hence the embarrassing lack of stickers...



Closeup of my many, pointless stickers.

great pics.
I wish I had but don't anymore as I lost 80% of my tools in the flood back in 2010
I have a Sears ratchet set Smile no stickers on the case though.

Oh right! Smilo gets out the photo shop! Nobody has that many tool boxes!

Well... Maybe if you run a Beemer you NEED that many tools!  Razz 

I'm reposting my ancient history one...


Old tools! by designthreedimension, on Flickr




and adding some of them actually being used!



Remember the mouse 'incident'?







...And the 'OOps! Kawi in the ditch incident'?


wheel off by designthreedimension, on Flickr


paint primer by designthreedimension, on Flickr

and the 'OOOPS... Kawi in the ditch AGAIN!' episode?



I seem to have a real need for tools...Rolling Eyes  Maybe I should get more organized in bigger boxes!
Funny looking at the stickers though! I remember getting them all and some of them date from the 70's!

Smilo, while examining yours (legitimate, it would seem!) I see you have a mascot. Is that a Fraggle Rock refugee?

Well, my unofficial mascot back in the racing days was a stuffed Rodger Rabbit... But, he retired with me.  What you see is kind of a "defacto" garage resident.

On one off-season trip to Disney, EPCOT was apparently stuck with stuffed Mickey's dressed in the clothing of a 1000 nations, or some such.  Anyhow, they threw a random one in the bag when you bought something.

So, I ended up with Greek Mickey in a Toga (Apollo, Prince of Mice?).  And somehow it ended up on that shelf.

I consider it my tribute to Disney actually giving something away...

Oh yes, here is a (mildly old) shot of me looking like I have some mechanical skill.



Don't have anything more recent.  I'm usually too busy cussing and throwing stuff to set up the camera...

Hey! Smilo! You're cheating! You appear to have some semblance of organization in your bike's dismemberment AND it's warm in your garage! It's usually about 1 degree above freezing in mine when I need to work on something.
Now that you explain it though, I do recognize the mouse.
I must go get a picture of my mascot. A 'life size' Willey Coyote' has done many miles with me on the 'pillion seat' as they say... Had him since 1971. My Mom gave him to me as a 21st. birthday present. You can infer my maturity at the time by such a gift...Embarassed

Well admittedly, the seeming organization was probably a bit staged (or the picture carefully cropped). There were a lot of parts all over as I recall.

Yes, the garage was warm there, which probably means it was closer to winter. If It was summer, I would have been soaked with sweat, and the camera would have a fogged lens from the humidity.

I was just out there doing a bit of bike maintenance last weekend and it was a killer!

Oh yeah, when I thought of you and Wile E Coyote, this was the first thing that came to mind...
