Recycle Bin Tool Holder

RATE THIS:

I SAWS THESE AND HAVE AN IDEA FOR A USE FOR THEM.AS YOU CAN FIND DAMAGED ONES AT A TIP WITH NO WHEELS OR THE LIDS BEEN CRACKED. ONCE I GET HOLD OF ONE THIS IS WHAT I WILL DO WITH IT. THE FRONT OF BIN I WILL CUT OUT A DOORWAY ,THEN MAKE A DOOR LINING .THE CUT OUT FOR LINING WILL BE 30 INCH HIGH X 18 INCH WIDE. A DOOR WILL BE MADE TO FIT OPENING. THE CUT OUT I HAVE WILL BE FIXED TO DOOR  I WILL MAKE. YOU NOW HAVE A DOOR ON A WHEELIE BIN WITH A LID?  NEXT I WILL RACK OUT THE INSIDE WITH SHELFS. THE LID WHICH IS HINGED WILL STAY,BUT WILL ADAPT A SPECIAL HINGE TO LID SO I CAN FIX A SHELF TO IT SO WHEN I LIFT LID THE SHELF LIFTS UP AT SAME TIME,HOUSING A TOOL HOLDER FOR CHISELS ,PLANES, SCREWDRIVERS ECT.THESE WILL BE ADAPTED AS AND WHEN I PROCEED WITH WORK AS I WILL HAVE TO DESIGN  HOW I WILL HOUSE THE TOOLS. THE LID AND DOOR WILL HAVE LOCKS ON.AS ITS ON WHEELS IT CAN EASY BE MOVED AROUND A WORKSHOP OR PUT IN A VAN AND TAKEN AROUND A SITE. AS YOU HAVE ALL THE TOOLS IN ONE CONTAINER.SAVES TAKING OR CARRYING AROUND 2 OR 3 TOOL BAGS. PLUS IF I CAN GET 2 BINS IN DIFFERENT COLOURS I CAN USE ONE FOR MY PLUMBING TOOLS THE OTHER FOR MY CARPENTRY AND JOINERY TOOLS. ALSO IF YOU WANTED YOU COULD PERSONALISE YOUR BIN. I AT THE MOMENT HAVE UPTEEN TOOLBAGS WITH ALL MY TOOLS MIXED UP,SO I HAVE TO KEEP SORTING MY BAGS OUT. AND IF YOU HAVE A SMALL WORKSHOP LIKE MINE IN ONE HALF YOU COULD LINE YOUR BINS UP 2 OR 3 WITH YOUR TOOLS IN FOR EACH TRADE PLUMBING  /  CARPENTRY  / BRICKLAYING  ECT.SO WITH EACH BIN COLOUR CODED FOR A TRADE. JUST WHEEL OUT AND USE. AS THE BINS ARE ABS PLASTIC ITS WATER PROOF PLUS NOW AND AGAIN OPEN BINS AND SPRAY YOUR TOOLS WITH WD40. WHEN LINING OUT BINS USE GOOD TIMBER EXAMPLE BEECH AS ITS HARDWEARING AND WONT WARP. WHEN I GET A BIN SPARE I WILL CONVERT ONE SO YOU CAN SEE. AT THE MOMENT ITS JUST AN IDEA. AND I THINK ITS A GOOD IDEA? WHAT DO YOU THINK ??
