BIG TIME BOXES
more with square inches as opposed to cubic
inches. A lot of [toolboxes] have deeper
drawers, and it's kind of wasted space. "
When Weinberger puts tools and equipment
in his toolbox, he likes to remove any
extraneous packaging, like blow-molded
cases, and set the tools directly inside the
drawers. Without the extra packaging to
take up space, he notes it's " a better bang
for your buck. "
Another customization the shop owner
likes are the adjustable shelves in his side cabinets.
The shelves span the length of the cabinets
and also function as slide-out drawers.
Aside from removing the tools from their
cases, Weinberger uses rails and a clip system
to keep his sockets organized - a system that
enables him to remove the full rail if he needs
as well as allows him to easily see if a socket
is missing. Additionally, he doesn't like storing
the sockets in pull-out drawers. While
he knows the drawers can handle plenty of
weight, he likes to keep them in the top lid
- one of his " idiosyncrasies " as he puts it.
A custom fit
This shop owner was sold on his toolbox when
he learned he could customize it to fit his needs.
By Emily Markham, Associate Editor
F
or
shop owner Marc
Weinberger, customization
played a key role in
putting together his current
toolbox set-up. Wanting to
update from his previous teal,
triple bank toolbox, Weinberger
looked to his Mac Tools distributor
for something a bit bigger, a
bit more versatile, and a whole
new color.
The new set-up in Marc's Towing and
Auto Repair in Kingston, N.Y., consists
of two toolboxes Weinberger bolted
together (top and bottom) - the MB1900
and MB1910 Macsimizers - along with
two side lockers, one on each end. The

whole set-up is bright yellow and reaches
73 " tall, 29.5 " deep, and 19' 7 " long.
MAKING IT HIS OWN
Back in 2005, when Weinberger was deciding
on this new toolbox, he really took
the time to customize it to fit his needs.
His number one customization was a lot
of drawers.
" I added more drawers, and it wasn't any
more money, " Weinberger notes. " I went

THE START OF IT ALL
Ever since he was a child, Weinberger has
been tinkering around with objects and playing
with tools. His father was a technician, so
he says, " I guess I just have it in my blood. "
Fast forward 42 years, and Weinberger
owns his own shop. He worked by himself
for a long time before finally hiring another
tech to lend him a hand.
The eight-bay shop has seven lifts and
the tools and equipment to perform complete
car care.
" We pretty much do everything but
bodywork, and I also do transmission
repair - that's kind of my specialty - and
of course the towing, " Weinberger says.
Looking back on opening his business,
Weinberger notes he's dealing with
three generations now. He's working on
the vehicles of the grandchildren whose
grandparents first visited his shop.
