Electricians Tool Pouch
I Need A New Pouch
I have been on the hunt for an
electricians tool pouch for the past few weeks. i would like one for
performing small jobs around the home and for friends.
I don't need full tool bag, just a pouch that will fit enough of my hand tools for general electrical work and fit comfortably around my waist. In my findings, I came across 3 that look like they would suit my needs
The first is the Makita P-71738
electricians tool pouch. The main thing that I like about this one is
that the screwdriver holders are made from real leather, this is the
type of quality that is a bit rarer these days, with most tool bags
being made from cheaper materials. It also comes with quite a deep main
compartment, which is great for storing my multimeter. You can tell
Makita have put a lot of effort into making this suitable for
Next on my list is the Milwaukee Work Pouch -
48228100. Although this is made from nylon, it does have all metal
hardward and what looks like quite strong rivetted seems. Milwaukee also
claim that the pockets are puncture resistant, so I'm confident the
pouch would last quite a while. The main drawcard for this unit is the
fact that it has a huge 15 pockets, meaning I'd be able to fit every
tool I need in it without having to travel back and forth between the
job and my van.
The final, and cheapest pouch that I looked
at is the Irwin 6 Pocket Electricians Tool Pouch - R-72500. The only
things this unit has going for it are the size and cost. It is quite
small, with only 6 tool storage pockets, so it would be more suited to
an apprentice or someone who's require to carry around only a few tools.
The price is quite low though, so if you're on a tight budget, this is
definitely the one you would choose.
I have decided to go with the Milwaulkee pouch, mainly for the following reasons: it's strong and sturdy, so it will last a lifetime. It has more storage than any of the other units, and it has the deep pocket which will be perfect to fit my multimeter.
