Here is an innovative use for a 55 Gallon Steel Drum

The design was created by Mr. Richard Sink and is patent pending. Richard, as well as being the designer and inventor of The Ultimate Toolbox, is a mechanic born and bred. He has been running his own car repair business for the last 30 years based on the South Coast of England (UK). He is also a consultant to the classic car industry, principally specializing in MGís and Miniís.

The main reason he decided to develop The Ultimate Toolbox was simply to make life far easier for mechanics and other serious tool users.

So what makes The Ultimate Toolbox so revolutionary?

Drums can make excellent burn barrels if cut properly to allow for air flow. These drums were a big hit with the hundreds of alumni who attended the event.
