Does anyone have the Park BTK-1 (tool bucket)

Here it is

http://www.parktool.com/products/det...4&item=BTK%2D1

I'm wondering if its actually worth $50, I've not seen one in person. I am considering it for the dual role of tool storage and organization on my PRS-15 workstand. Thanks.

Tools hang on a work bench or in a toolbox. Not in a tool bucket.

Operator, I understand that. Some people may have needs different than yours. My workbench, roll-aways, and peg boards are completely full of woodworking tools. I frequently take all my bike tools with me on trips, so I like to keep them in one container. I am currently using a standard toolbox for this.

Does anyone OWN one, if so, how do you like it? Thanks.

Pretty sure HD or Lowes has "bucket buddies" for 1/4 the price.

If I had the stand and needed to be mobile, I'd consider the $50 well spent.

I completely understand that as well. It's only $50, try it out?

I'm wondering how it attaches to the stand.
