Wish I had that type of scratch laying about. There’s got to be $10K in tools in that chest.

Your friend has way too much spare cash. :-) That’s got to be about $50,000 worth of tools.

Beautiful job on the tool chest. What’s nice is that everything is accessible and easily identifiable, unlike the tools in a lot of tool chests I’ve seen.

WOW!!! Looks like a LN add. Not only is the tool selection impressive, the chest was thought out and executed perfectly. This is on of the nicest tool chests I have seen.
