A Portable Tool Drawer

A Portable Tool Drawer

A carpenter who works in a plant where he has to carry his tools around frequently to various locations in the shop, fitted up a box which serves either as a drawer for his workbench or for a tray to be carried. When in its place under the bench, the drawer is readily locked with a padlock over the hasp shown. When the carpenter starts out to work in another part of the plant, he merely takes out the drawer, catches it by the handle in the middle partition and carries it with him.

—Chas. H. Willey, Concord, N.H.
