I have always been a sucker for tool rolls, and I am thinking of building a few, since the ones out there are just to generic for me... Seems like I can never fit my tools the way I want them to fit...
Another issue is that I just never know which tools to place together. So far I am thinking a handyman (around the house tool roll) one for standard and one for metric... Etc.
Then I ran across these tool rolls.
I think I'm going to try and replicate the Master tool kit.
Looks like it could be a fun project!
So, if you have them, show us a picture of your tool roll and what you like to carry in them...
I have thought about doing this too. I have some of those sets of straight and "S" wrenches and have wanted to make the tool roll for them. One could compare the dimensions of the tool shown in the illustration with and actual tool. Then use some math to extrapolate the dimensions of the tool roll. As for what material to make them out of, I don't know. Does anyone have any old tool rolls for tool set sold by aftermarket auto parts stores? Is this page from a Western Auto catalog?
This is what I got with my late '27....plan on completing the set.
Jeff, is that the original bag that came with the car?
I'll bet the tools survive longer than an original tool bag.
Try to get the lug nut tool into the bag!
Look what I found... I plan to do the same just need to build that tool roll!
Lotta bucks for tools!

Here are some pics from the eBay page...
It always amazes me that the early motorist brought along, and apparently needed, chisels, punches and files in order to make repairs at the roadside. How lucky we hare to have interchangeable parts which (usually) fit without any trouble.
