Primary Base

First, roll your main toolbox into place in your Primary Base. Lock the casters. Make sure that you keep it far enough away from the wall to allow you to open and close the lid without banging into your wall or pegboard. Place your portable (secondary) tool boxes in their appropriate places.

Next, you can arrange all of your power tools. Those that are table models should be placed according to your designs. Others that are portable can be arranged on the lower shelves of your workbenches or placed wherever you have envisioned them according to your designs.

Now, place your containers & bins for fasteners on your workbench. We will fill them in the next Phase.

Lastly, roll or place your drawers & bins for spare parts & supplies into their proper places. Then, go to your Secondary Base.
