Posso T-box 400
« on: September 19, 2014, 05:08 AM »
202394-0202396-1202398-2202400-3202402-4I recently came across a Posso T-box 400 tool box at a car boot sale. The seller wanted £3 for it but I left it and came back to check it later and got it for £1.50!!!

Its a brilliant tool box and initially was going to use the internal caddy inside a sys5 box but it is too tall for it. So I am using it as is for my plumbing tools at present.

I'll try putting some pics up but every time I try I fail so it may take a while.

This t-box is just an excellent idea and very practical.  All tools are easily accessible and it doubles as a stool seat although there is a picture on the box prohibiting it being used as a step stool. I have used it as a step stool all week and has been brilliant.  It is very strong much strong than flimsy systainers in comparison.  It would have been perfect if it was about 100mm larger all the way round and would be more stable to stand on. I am on the look out for more of these if I can find them. These I believe were made in the 90s and no longer available.

SCORE!!!!

I assume you added the tools later? It didn't come with them, did it?

I'm asking because it seems like a nice fit on the wrenches - especially if they were something that you just 'happened' to have...

No, the tools are mine. I guessed the wrenches went there and I was correct as in the stock photo I found on the net in the last post. I had most of these tools in a CK tool roll. I have  added the files. The ck tool roll will go on ebay and I expect to get more than I paid for it as I got it cheap and its way more now in price.

I got mine at a car boot sale. They were on sale many years ago and as far as I know were discontinued years ago. Second hand  is the only way to find them.

first saw these late 90's the do a smaller version which I picked up from texas diy then later they did a clearance on the bigger ones.

swiss made and all over the place for a while as they made several tool type things.

http://www.google.com/patents/USD317677

I first set out my tools into the small one buying to fill it and fitting clips to the outside for a thorex hammer and a set of chisels. used it for fitting with much success for years and bought a spare one which I still have then the big version when I found some, I am struggling to get on with because it is laid out differently and my tools don't fit as well as I'd like. they are a great bit of kit, you can see you have all your kit before you put the lid on and it doubles as a step up - if you keep it together, try to use the lid on its own and it will break

just seen this

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/toolbox-made-posso-/351329901741?clk_rvr_id=825966712169&rmvSB=true

shocked. but not as much as when I found this

mine are worth more than their weight in silver.  [eek]

I bought another t-box today from the same car boot sale I got my first one from. I got the first one for £1.50 and this one cost me ten times as much for £15.00.

Looking at how much they can be sold for I may eventually sell one hopefully for a massive profit.

sorry just noticed this but the boxes have been packed up for the house move. finally moved so will see what I can do. the smaller version is about half the volume. I wanted an excuse to get some sys 5s.

stopped using it for work when I moved over to toolbags for convenience transporting when I could only use one carryall but I do miss the little drawers and being able to check everything at a glance.

I see you have used bits of pipe as organisers to hold tools. I have done a similar thing in my CK tool tote bag. Make life easier as all tools have their place - at least until you have used a lot of those tools and they get dumped in their.

yeah I used to use pipe to hold hacksaw blades, spade bits long bits etc.. extra holes and slots for rulers, round files, egg whisks etc.. as there was a lot if unused space around the box, I could get an awfull lot in the old little box, the new one I never got around to sorting out and the big one it was impossible to just hoik everything over to. as I literally chose tools that specifically fit into a certain sized hole or slot.

I'll get around to it - eventually :)

oh the first little one I had, I made an mdf top for which allowed me to use it as baby sawing block and I also used to have a baby vice on it for small things and clipped chisels and a thorex hammer to the outside, very handy.

thread ressurection but I stumbled across these by accident. and seeing as there was some interest a couple of years ago.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Posso-Tool-Large-Toolbox-yellow/dp/B00020IZN2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540933297&sr=8-1&keywords=posso+t400

still a cracking bit of kit and I do like the black look, it fits quite nicely with the systainer ethos IMO.

its also available for 55 euros but no idea on delivery costs from france.

Cool! It was the hand tool systainer inserts like these that first got me thinking to transition to systainers once I saw the possibilities.

Looking at these makes me wonder about some 3D printed tool clips that you could arrange how you like on a bare ply systainer insert, as when I was making my insert doing all the tool slots/holes was the majority of the work and once it's done you can't really change it up.
