"A bucket with a screw-on top is the best toolbox. The only one I have found that doesn't leak."

"I keep plugs, Teflon and gizmos in my truck and just have my drill and other odd tools in a small bag. No need to carry all that stuff with you at all times — unless you have to park your vehicle a ways away."

"The Veto Pro Pac tool backpack — this bag is WAY better than a big bag slung over my shoulder. I couldn't be more happy with it."

"Cyclone and cord with a short hose in the bottom box. Plugs, tape, bits for cover anchors and a drill in the middle. The top holds antifreeze, tarp rod, a mixing bucket, shock and algaecide. This is a one trip wonder."
