  • My new Tool bag.

    The Veto pro-pac. This was late Christmas gift to myself. It is quite heavy, but so was my old bag. The main difference is that this one keeps the tools super organized and is built to last.
    This is how I set it up for plumbing service:

    i would lose the 2 pex crimpers and the 10'' wrench.

    i doubt you use them in everyday work. keep them in the truck and grab them when you need them.

    the bag should carry the basics. the truck carries the heavy stuff and odd ball stuff

      We all know about those "Late Christmas gifts to myself".

      It's when nobody really got you what you want (tools).

      And besides, it's for work so it's ok.

      And furthermore, I DESERVE IT!!!!!

      Hey, I think I'm getting the hang of this Rick smiley thing.

        That's just beautifull. Kinda makes all those old tools look shabby.

          I prefer to keep my faucet seat tools in my faucet (tackle) box.

          What is that thing on the far left in pic #2 beside the rigid pvc/tube cutters?

                  I carry a very lean toolbag for the most part...
                  I would keep the pex tools in the truck as well as any tool I did not use at least daily.

                  The Veto pac is a good bag but overloading is a real problem and will show in your shoulders after lugging a bag this size for a few years

                  The zippers will be the first thing to go IMO.

                  Let us know how it holds up

                    JC, convinced me of the Veto Bag so I bought the open top. I really like the bag and could think of some improvements but overall it rocks. I would not loose the 10" pipe wrench, I use my aluminum one all the time.

                    The best thing is the PVC bottom. Here is a pic of my best friend.



                    By the way Carl, if you have not got a mini driver/drill like the Milwaukee M12 you should get one. I carry it in my bag. One battery lasts me about 2 weeks.

                      While I don't have the Veto I do have an open top bag which I prefer to a closed bag which you have to open all of the time. The open top Veto looks pretty nice so I may have to look closer into them. As for Milwaukee drivers, I bought a bunch of them as gifts for Christmas and kept one for myself. The new 4volt Milwaukee Lithium Ion screwdriver is incredible. I've used in for several projects in the last week (Christmas gift assembly) and the gauge still shows full.

                          Here's mine. I don't carry it in on every job unless I have several things going on inside. The biggest problem is if it tips I'm putting everything back in its place.

                            Well, its actually a 12" pipe wrench. I also have a 14" in the bag laying down, unseen in the pics. I use those two wrenches all the time, though they do weigh down the bag a bit. I also use the pex crimpers all the time. I have tried keeping them in my regular truck toolbox, but they always end up in the bag anyway.
