Help me find Drop-In-The-Bucket stora...

About 10 years ago I purchased three different colored buckets with stackable storage systems. I would like to purchase more. After looking for three hours and several back issues I finally found an original advertisement by Journeyman Products, Ltd. for Drop-In-The-Bucket. I called the 800 number and it appears they are either out of business or have moved. Does anyone know where I can find these buckets? I have used others systems and don't like them nearly as well.

HD has stacking yellow trays with four compartments, made for compound buckets. Are you looking for something more complex? What are you going to use them for?

HD also has plastic (gray) organizers/ cases ($9), some double sided (black) that are quite impressive. I think they are made by ZAG. We must have a dozen or so. Keeps us incredibaly organized.

I like the black (some now are yellow) plastic "job boxes" on rollers ($40), also made by ZAG. We have 10 of those - each dedicated to a particular trade, type of material, or phase of a job. The most treasured one is the Punch List Box. Everyone eyes it and salivates. It holds the newest, cleanest and best tools in the co.

edit: OOPS! Just noticed the date of the initial post. HA!

Flay your Suffolk bought-this-morning sole with organic hand-cracked pepper and blasted salt. Thrill each side for four minutes at torchmark haut. Interrogate a lemon. Embarrass any tough roots from the samphire. Then bamboozle till it's al dente with that certain je ne sais quoi.

I'd like to know why no one (post #157967, reply #7 of 14)

I'd like to know why no one still makes real parachute bags.  The only ones you can find now are all like the crummy Bucket Boss model, lacking the central lacing that makes them self-closing.

Milwaukee (post #157967, reply #8 of 14)

Milwaukee makes a good one with a high sleeve, that closes down over the pouches.  

Double checked on Amazon, and there is one by arsenal that looks like the old bags, and has drawstrings that all go to the center.  So does Mcguire-Nicholas. 

And, Klein makes a ten pocket version, if you want to spend $50 on one. 

Nah, you look closely and you (post #157967, reply #9 of 14)

Nah, you look closely and you can see that they're all made by the same shop in China, with the same design.  Milwaukee, BB, and Arsenal all apparently sell "overtall" bags with the drawstrings in the center, but the normal height units are all the same crummy design with a strap in the center.

Make your own. (post #157967, reply #10 of 14)

I think it would be easy to make  your own bags.  Get a sewing machine and your choice of material and have at it.  I may see if I can sell them on eBay myself if I get laid off from Kodak next week.

I have a lot of mil surplus green duck tent fabric I would use. 

I'm halfway tempted to do (post #157967, reply #11 of 14)

I'm halfway tempted to do that, only my wife would shoot me if I tried to sew heavy duck on her machine.

Get you a he-man machine! (post #157967, reply #12 of 14)

I've got a walking foot upholstery machine with table and clutch motor. Singer table and machine 211g-155.  I believe it will sew sheetmetal together.

There's no room for it, what with her two sewing machines and two sergers.

Well, I do see a lot of good (post #157967, reply #14 of 14)

Well, I do see a lot of good heavy old portable sewing machines on craigslist.  There's a good one on craigslist here for $10 that would do the job.  The newer ones are pretty much junk unless you get into commercial and industrial machines.

What's this newfangle editor that I'm seeing here?

I don't seem to be getting email notifications anymore since a couple weeks ago.
