Ultimate Tool Box

Have you see Adam Savage's ultimate toolbox?
Impressive, to say the least.

We found this over at Curbly.com. We were googling the perfect toolbox and this site has an article that lists all the things a tool box (or tool bag these days) should have. Definitely go take a look and see if you've got all of them. Or make sure your Dad does. For Father's Day you can get him whatever he doesn't have on the list. 

Stocking the ultimate toolbox: every tool a homeowner will ever need

Also make sure he's got a good bunch of fasteners to work with at home.

This kit looks great!
I'm going to try and break it down.

Mostly it is a combination of Wood Screws, Sheet Metal Screws and Nails.
Then they threw in some grommets, plastic anchors, lag shields, wedge anchors & even some corrugated washers.

What is the difference between SHEET METAL SCREWS and WOOD SCREWS, you ask?

I'm so glad you did! It's simple.

If they are not fully threaded then they are Wood Screws. And if they are fully threaded then guess what - they're Sheet Metal Screws. 

This kit pretty much uses the phillips drive exclusively - do you know why?
Because it is just way more efficient than slotted.
But you knew that - everyone knows that!

Lastly it looks like a whole bunch of sizes and materials so you have some different options. 

After you get this, no matter what Dad's going to need to fix, he'll have the supplies.
