Tool box
Tango needs a tool box. A smaller one. I am building myself a computer repair kit. The crap they give us at work SUCKS. It is cheap tools that bend or break if you look at them cross eyed.

I have screw drivers, wire cutters, and various stuff along with some small testing equipment.

I am looking to keep this under $50.

Assuming you are not talking about a mechanic's type of box but something more portable I would look at Home Depot or Lowes for an Electricians Toolbag. Much less bulk an ideally suited for the type of tools you would be using.

soft or hard?

Tango I have worked in 7 states, something like 22-23 cities and halfway around the world. In all my travels I have yet to find better tools, or better equipment, than Klein. They make quality, made in the USA stuff and they have tools for just about everything.

Klein Tools, Inc. - Handtools for Professional Electricians, HVAC and Lineman, Klein Tools, Chicago, Illinois | Pliers, Fish Tapes, Wire Strippers, Voice-Data-Video Testers, Cable Cutters, Screwdrivers, Nut Drivers, Wrenches, Knives, Scissors, Snips,

I can HIGHLY recommend them. They cost a little more than average, but they will last the rest of your lifetime and your son will still have good tools to work with long after you are gone.

What I have found to be plain awesome is one of those buckets with the husky bucket tool bag on them. I was an electrician when I had one, have one in my garage now too. Pockets for everything and storage for parts at the bottom of the bucket. Youre spending MAYBE 15 bucks for the entire thing. They have them on sale at Home Depot.

No I don't need a rollaway. I just need a small decent toolbox. I have a cheap orange Home Depot giveaway but that is what I use for my HOA tools. I have a big three drawer Kobalt one at home that is plastic with steel drawers. I love it but that is way to big for what I am doing.

I need something that is easy to store and of decent quality.

Not a box but this might fit the bill... Custom LeatherCraft 1539 18 Multi-Compartment Tool Carrier: Home Improvement

Or this smaller one...

Check Amazon, they have a lot.

I got one of these at Home Depot for under $20. I use it for my firearm toolbox. I like it because (a) it has an open top; (b) it was cheap; and (c) it has many pockets, and I do love me some pockets.

I think either one of them will work Poink. Thanks for the links. Would much rather have a soft sided one vs a big metal clanging tool box.
