Improved jack tool Bag

Recommended Posts

OK, I'm going to presume there is no interest in getting the eBay seller of the Datsun- embroidered tool roll to make us a quantity at a discount. If you are interested nevertheless, please contact the eBay seller, Cmillinix.

Here's a question for you gadget-junkies:

If you were going to carry sockets in a tool roll like this, how would you keep them from falling out or getting lost? You could probably use the usual metal, snap-on type socket holder, but is there a tube with caps that you could buy? I think it would begreat to keep the water off the sockets.

Just found this thread. Did you end up with a definite number of people willing to buy?

There were definitely zero people interested. Apparently, people prefer to sew their own 'bags' instead of getting a professionally-made, well-designed, tool roll with a custom-embroidered Datsun logo.

I started clearing out the Z and found a tool bag with the lug wrench and spindle for the jack. The black bag have the Nissan Motor stamp. How original is that? I thought Nissan didn't want their name on anything just in case the US market is a bust.

I'm way delinquent in getting some pictures up of the tool roll. Have been distracted by a number of things recently but finally got around to taking a few shots.

My "must have" tool requirements may be different from others as I need some specific tools for the Webers / linkage and my ignition system is all after market. I've also made a lot of changes / upgrades to my electrical system so I have some non-standard fuse requirements as well.

I wanted to carry some basic tools including screwdriver assortment, basic wrenches (socket as well as open end / box), allen wrenches, tie wraps, etc. Managed to fit it all into the roll, but I did purchase a couple of new tools that were more space saving. One was a multi drive screwdriver and the other was a mini 1/4" ratchet set. The ratchet set is very compact and seems to be made fairly well. In addition to the tools in the roll itself, I also carry a 3/8 hollow socket set from Gear Wrench that fits perfectly under the driver seat. With that and what I carry in my tool bag, I can pretty much take care of anything that is typically going to go wrong.

In any case, I've included a bunch of pictures. Hopes this helps anyone thinking of making this purchase. It took some effort to make it work for me, but in the end I am happy with the result and the product is very well made.

Mike.

I'm going to use a canvas bag for a while, until I get my tool requirements condensed. I've been buying mini- or combination- tools when I go buy tools. The only thing I'm still wondering about is how to store the little sockets. I keep thinking of a clear tube with screw-on endcaps. The tube could also hold bulbs, fuses, zipties, money, etc.

Actually, I have a tub that I take on trips. I can put all kinds of bigger stuff in there like a radio, TP, towel, gas/radiator cap, plastic bags, FOOD, etc. It fits n front of the passenger seat, and has velcro pads on the lid to keep stuff from sliding around. I even cut a hole in the lid to stuff things in without lifting the lid. then you go through the tub at the hotel or rest stop, and remove trash or snacks.

Yeah- Don't forget to put some cash or coins in your bag. I have a leather checkbook cover from the Salvation Army store that I keep in the glovebox; it has some money, the registration papers, car club card, McDonald's gift card, etc. It's stylish too.

Mike-

With all the digital stuff people are incorporating in the car, like the distributor and HellFire, how would you put a notebook PC in your tool roll? LOL

OK....

So I've got my new tool r filled with some important tools to fix things while on the road, and even a (deodorant case) with some spare bulbs. I eve managed to use the straps on the bag to tie it to the spare wheel.

I still think there is a need for an improved bag for the jack tools, so I found a Tandy leather store nearby, and I will construct a new bag for the jack tools.

Lot's of great ideas here, but don't forget to add an OEM fan belt to your collection. Like this one that has been in my LH tool box for the last 30+ years.:)
