Looking for a tool case to keep my ever growing collection in good nick. If money were no concern then I would fancy the Park BX-2 as the size looks about perfect and I guess the inserts will fit my existing Park tools:

Can anyone recommend cheaper alternatives?

For general these are excellent and sometimes on offer for £15

Heh, that's the exact Stanley case I have for my general household tools :D. It's pretty solid too, so maybe I should just get another. I was having delusions of trying to look like a pro wrench!

The Rapid ones look good, not come across them before. They do a similar number to the BX-2, sadly at a similar price.

Cheers,

Nik

Ive got the Park AK-37, looks to have been superseded by the AK-38. But it depends if you've already got most of the tools.....
