The present concept is directed to a maintainable tool case. The case has an aluminum deep-drawncase 10 over which a replaceable plastic shell 12 is mounted.

Proposed Classification

mt. CL A47b

Tool cases frequently have vinyl coverings which are easily damaged during use.

Although such damaged cases are still structurally sound, the damaged vinyl covers are cosmetically unattractive.

The present concept is directed to a maintainable tool case. The case has an aluminum deep~drawncase 10 over which a replaceable plastic shell 12 is mounted.

Thus, the shell can be replaced at minimal cost to ~'dress-up" a cosmetically de- fective tool case. Tool case hardware, such as the hinge 14 and the rubber feet 16, are also removable thus providing a maintainable tool case with virtually unlimited

life.
