Among the most unique aspects of the city of Pittsburgh is the weather. With temperatures nearing 90 degrees for a number of days in the summer and more than a month on average per year where the temperature never gets higher than the freezing point, Pittsburghers are accustomed to a number of conditions. Humid summers? Check. Snow or an 80-degree day in the middle of October? Check. Winters so frigid and dry that everything in sight is covered in salt and ice? Check.
As I make slow improvements to my workshop, one that has been left in the cold (quite literally) has been the addition of sufficient heating. Sometimes cold enough to see my breath while inside, my workshop can get Pittsburgh-style cold in the wintertime.
While my tools are generally safe from the elements in my shop (aside from these brisk temperatures), I know that that’s not always the case. Tools kept in basements, garages, and other workspaces can be prone to dust and water damage if not stored properly.
I want to help you all make sure that your favorite tools are kept safe through any condition, which is why I was super excited when the Home Depot asked me to review the Husky 13.5 in. Plastic Tool Box in Black. Great for keeping tools safe and secure, this toolbox is the perfect choice for a number of applications. Check it out and let me know what you think!

When you think about a standard toolbox, it includes rigid shapes that only fit specific tools, a hard outer shell, and tools flung all over the place when you open it up. Most toolboxes can be less than ideal when unorganized and make it difficult to safely transport and store your tools.

This dust and water protection allows you to rest assured that your favorite tools - or practically any of your belongings - are kept safe.
