Default Flight Line Box

After searching for good portable carrier to hold starter, etc., at the flight line, found this at WalMart. I was ready to build one, this is solid wood, looks like walnut, $10.00 plus tax. Could not build it at this price. The inner compartment's come out. Now I don't have to have bulging pocket's, and wishing I had three hand's.

FreeBird. The kitchen area, where the drain board's, sink stuff, the women's section. I started for the tool area, thought I would check that area first. My tx fit's perfect on one side with the inside section's out, they just slide out, then the starter and glow lighter on the other side, good balance. My B&P starter fit's right in. If you can't find one, I can get the part number off the bottom, check online walmart also.

Vince,
We do not have WalMart locations, but no problem, that shoe shine box is much too small for us anyway. At least it must be possible to store a propeller in it.
My box is 24” x 11” x 9”, supermarket, priceless. I only did have to run for a while to have it.
Red oval is (dual pen)lighter for the glowplug, yellow is the sandwich powered back flip starter.
Hanna inspects cleaning action.
We always have a towel on top with the radio transmitter on it. The towel to use on the field, see:
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=10011244

I do have the "oval parts" in my pocket during flight.

Crank,

Don't worry we have more of them.
Latest tool is a solder iron, powered by three NiHi penlights.
I already did use it a several times to repair wiring of planes for club members. We do not have a power source on our field.
If anybody is interested I can make a picture of that solder iron. Maybe you can buy that in the States.
Have fun,

Cees

Ok, whatever you say man, but over here in australia, when you say "meat and potates" you're generally referring to the dude's 'man-parts'!!!
