Remember those rolling backpacks from grade school? They were all the rage when I was in 4th or 5th grade. I got one just as the trend was fading, but I still used the crap out of it.
I was cleaning out my closet today and I found it, filled with stray screws, dust bunnies, and even chips and crumbs from way back when.
Gross! I almost just tossed it, but then I got an idea for making a rolling toolbox holder for making my tools and radio control gear a bit more portable.
