I’ve just learned of two new accessories that I couldn’t wait to tell TiC readers about. The first is not just a tool bag but the Mother of all tool bags: From Occidental Leather, meet “The Doctor.” And from Festool, check out a systainer First Aid Kit!
The Doctor isn’t for everyone. With a price of $465.00, most carpenters will shake their heads and roll their eyes. But if price isn’t as important to you as organization and ease-of-use, and if you’re strong enough to carry it, The Doctor is the ultimate Tool bag.
First Aid from Festool
You can buy a decent first aid kit for about $20.00, but it won’t come in a systainer, and it won’t come with just about everything you might need for a jobsite injury–except sutures and a scalpel. Of course, at $89.00 you might wonder if there’s a doctor in the box, too, but my hats off to Festool for encouraging safety on the jobsite and being the first tool manufacturer to provide a first aid kit. We’ll be giving away one of these kits at every Roadshow this year–and I expect quite a few carpenters will appreciate them.
