Tools and storage

How much do the pros/diyers on here have invested in tools and tool storage?Myself I have about 55k in tools and storage.Most people don't have to make that investment in their career after paying for the training.

Well, let's see; if you include the wrecker that my tool box resides in I guess I'm into about 75K!

I would consider your truck a tool so it counts.

jeesh,
In 17 years, I would have to guess around 100- 125 grand. 15 of that in tool box. I am amazed at the amount of dollars of tools sitting on the cart after a job is done. Kinda disheartening to see 5 grand worth of tools laying out to get paid 1.5 hours.

18yrs, have them insured at 90k. Probably cost twice that to replace them all...

I've never really kept track but I know I claim 3-4K every year on my taxes and I've been around the business for 37 years.
