I've never built one for myself, but I did inherit one my grandfather used to take on the trolley to his job at the lumberyard. He only had one set of tools for work and home, so they commuted with him. My father used it for a long time as well, before he could buy boxes for his truck.

My dad left behind some cool military stuff. He did 12 years in the US Army.
I had, note the word "had", a full set of, both the large and the small of Greenfield Tap and Dies. They were in the most magnificent wood boxes and just felt so right when they were in ones hand.

These too he acquired from Uncle Sam.

This is bringing back very pleasant memories!

I would spend HOURS in the workshop exploring his tools and his machines. It was probably the better part of my "learning how to be a real man" eduction. How to get ones hands dirty and have something to show for it.

I did learn, on many an occasion, what NOT to do with a given tool. Needless to say that my Father was none too happy when he would come home and find one of his prized possessions having been used in the wrong manner! lol
