My brother in law is a mechanic and has A tool box from Cornwell that is the same size. He has over 80k worth of tools in it and the only thing other than tools inside are a toothbrush,change of clothes, spare keys to his car, and a carton of cigs.

That'* actually more than one tool box, they bolt togeher to become one.It can be 6 boxes bolted together. 2 bottoms, 2 tops and 2 side cabinets. Here is an example:

I guess the way some look at it is, when you have spent over $50,000.00 in tool in your life time then $10,000.00 to $20,000.00 isn't as much when you consider you'll probably spend even more on tools in the time to come. Others have a passion for tools and working on cars are there hobby. I know you couldn't imagine it, but believe me, I can relate.

Bottom line, to each there own.
