May 4, 2007, Newsletter Issue #23: Got An Oily Truck Tool Box?

Tip of the Week

Do you find oily residues at the bottom of your truck tool box or portable tool kit? Mechanic's tools are particularly subject to residues, oils, and other fluids, all of which can end up collecting at the bottom of the box. It's very easy to install a couple of pieces of cut-to-fit cardboard at the bottom of the box to absorb any gunk that might trickle down over time, and you can even make a U-shaped cardboard insert to protect the sides of the box, too. If you're tired of a perpetually grimy tool kit, cardboard is your new best friend.
