As woodturners with a need to shift kits between demos, shows etc. we have long been frustrated by the dearth of suitable toolbags on the market. We've tried steel boxes but they are heavy, noisy, the tools rattle around and the box corners and fittings tend to knock bits out of your legs! Plastic boxes, if you can find any that are anything like long enough, share most of the same shortcomings and don't seem to have great durability. They are certainly not comfortable to carry!
We decided to use our contacts in the leather-bag-making industry to try to get a bag that met our definition of what was needed.
The leather toolbag is made of really robust, heavyweight vegetable tanned hide with double thickness ends. Being leather, your nicely sharpened tools will not get dulled or damaged by coming into contact with the bag. The compartment of the bag is a full 27 inches (680mm) long - sufficiently long for almost any turning tool, even hollowing tools and long-handled gouges. In our tests we packed more than 20 such tools into the approx. six (6) inch (150 mm) diameter bag and were still able to close it perfectly easily.
This leather toolbag is secured by three closure straps with hefty buckles for security and the carry handles are long - sufficiently long that I can hoist my bag onto my shoulder for comfortable carrying over longer distances.
Please note that the leather colour may vary, dependent upon the availability of suitable supplies of hide.
For those whose preferences are for a more economical material; we also offer a heavy canvas ToolPost toolbag, in similar style, under ref. GTBC30. We are proud to offer both these bags under The ToolPost own brand.
What's to say, this is us! We are woodworkers and have been retailing in the woodturning, carving and woodworking industry for over 20 year, across two generations. We sell tools we would - and indeed do - use. If it is on the shelves, it carries (for one reason or another) our seal of approval. We are wholly independent, we can choose wherever the wind blows, we have no formal affiliation, which makes our opinons and decision the only trulky inpartial ones in the country as things stand.
We have worked with both big and small manufacturers over the years, we have helped brands develop tools, lathes and accessories, as well as creating our own.
We are proud to manufacture, distribute and retail a huge array of tools, equipment, machinery and supplies for woodturning and wood carving from across the globe.
