Toolbox

Simply put, a toolbox is a box where a creative worker saves all his or her tools. To put it more simply, a toolbox is a specific box for storing various tools. The toolbox is very important for creative work to make different kinds of things. No matter what kind of project he has to carry the toolbox inside or outside the house all the time. It makes the job more organized, easier and more professional. 

Toolbox creates a smart look for any project. But for that, you have to maintain or organize the toolbox in a smart way. For more than 7 years I maintain a toolbox for my working purpose. Really it helps me a lot. 

How to Organize Your Toolbox

I have said so many things for so long now. Let’s come to the main point. You are absolutely right, Now I will talk about how to make the toolbox more organized. You can easily organize a toolbox nicely by maintaining some things if you want. Let’s start the main discussion now.

Make a  Tool List

I’m telling you from my work experience that when you organize a toolbox, always make a list of your tools. Make two lists of tools. Keep one copy inside the toolbox and the other in another safe place. It will give you a clear idea about your tools. You will find out what tools you have and what you may need in the future. 

Not only this, with the help of this you can know which tools you are taking with you at work. This reduces the chances of losing the necessary tools. I lost all four of my ranges when I went to work in 2018. But after a while, I found all my ranges again just to maintain a tool list.

Clean Toolbox

Nobody likes to work with garbage. .It is very normal to get dirty inside and outside the toolbox. Be sure to clean it regularly. If the toolbox is dirty you will not get the good motivation to work but will feel annoyed. So clean it properly

If you use a steel or tin toolbox, never clean it with water. This can cause rust in the box. Clean the toolbox thoroughly using a cleaning spray. The wooden toolbox you can clean anyway. Do not put the tools inside the toolbox as soon as you clean it, but wait until the toolbox is there.

Clean All Tools

Using tools in different projects makes them dirty. So when the work is done, you have to clean the tools well. If any equipment or tools get dirty, never leave it in the toolbox until you have cleaned it. This is because a dirty tool can cause damage to other tools. 

Always use a cleaning spray to clean equipment or tools. Never bring them in contact with water. Only keep them inside the box when the tools are dry after cleaning.

Discard the Broken Equipment

Nothing lasts forever. Prolonged use results in damage to various equipment or tools. Many times they break down and many times they become unusable. Don’t keep unnecessary, broken equipment inside the toolbox. This will cause a lot of problems to find the necessary equipment at work. So keep useless equipment away from the toolbox. 

Not all equipment in the toolbox is safe, so unnecessary equipment must be kept in a good place or discarded. Useless equipment that can be repaired needs to be repaired quickly. And it is better to throw away the things that can never be fixed. 

Arranged According to Tools Size and Type

Inside the toolbox are a variety of tools. Some tools are small- like clamps, some are big- like drywall saw, and some are huge. So when you put the tools in the toolbox, arrange them according to size and type. You can arrange small appliances together. Again, if you have more than one item of the same type, you can put them together.

Like now I have seven sewing ranges that I put together. I have a total of five power tools that I have put together very safely inside the toolbox. This makes it very easy for me to find the tools I need. If you want, you can arrange the tools according to the project.

Put the Toolbox Into the Right Place

Where you place the toolbox is very important. Not putting the toolbox in the right place can damage the toolbox and even damage the equipment inside. Never keep the toolbox in a damp place. Toolboxes should not be kept in places that come in contact with water.

There are various types of equipment that can inadvertently cause an accident. Always keep the toolbox in a safe place. The toolbox should not be placed in a place accessible to children.
