So after 10 years or so my computer tool kit is getting a bit past it.
I liked it as it had a lot of what I needed in a convenient zipped case.

I had a look through the DSE site, but didnít really find what I wanted.
Any suggestions where I might get a good solid one for around $150

Depends exactly what you wanted in it?

My tool kit currently consists of a multi head screw driver, cable testers, anti static mat, anti static bracelet and some plyers :S

Lots of things which is why I am finding it hard to find one that holds it all without being filled with stuff I will never use, need or even know what it is.

I hate multi screwdrivers so I need individuals.

2x Philips
2x Flat
3x Driver with a hole for those bolt headed screws (3 sizes)
Full set Jeweller type screwdrivers 8x
Pliers springloaded Needle Nose
Pliers springloaded Side cutters
Pliers springloaded Needle Nose hooked
Anti Static strap
Parts Mat
Small container to hold removed screws (shallow)
Grabby 3 hook thing
Twisty 3 hook grabber thing
Tweezers long thin
Tweezers shorter wider
Crimping tool
Soldering Iron (cold is my preference but doesn't really matter)
Decent knife
Pokey thing for DVD Drive ejection
Hooky thing (looks like dentists tool) use it for hooking wires out

There is probably more but I would have to think about it.

There is an Aussie company called Cabac, and they make some great stuff. I've got no idea how to get hold of their gear though. :p

Pink is not my colour speedy, the others don't fit the needs.

I am thinking I will have to build my own Foxy, but what I really wanted was a easy zipped case to go with the tools also.....

Ah well can't have everything.

hmmmm

This one is tempting

Getting close there pctek, that big one on the bottom is great, lots of stuff I don't need thou and a bit pricy.

The others have the multi-driver grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr or are lacking too many pieces.

I know I am picky, but I think thats ok :)

Beg, borrow or steal a Mike Case with zipper from a mate in a band, these makes fine electronic tool kit holders.

That looks quite good as it has room for the repair/tools CDs/DVDs as well, though I would like to examine the quality of the case. Some are rather tacky.

It's a pity you can't just get a case since you already have all the tools. Tools don't normally wear out.

Your right Foxy, a few pieces need replacing after 10 years, more than half actually so its a good buy looking now but I could buy individual pieces its the case that is the clincher.

That ThinkGeek one is very tempting I must say. But again its missing a lot of the bits I want and has alot of stuff I don't need.
