- sorry, but I have to vent

This is a rhetorical qusetion - I don't think it really has an answer.

But WHY ON EARTH can tool manufacturers NOT MAKE A TOOL CASE THAT FITS THE TOOL PROPERLY ONCE IT"S BEEN TAKEN OUT.

More specifically - most of them are designed to fit the tool well - but it's like they didn't know it had a wire attached to it.

For the love of god - would it KILL THEM to make the case a few inches bigger so you can can actually FIT THE WIRE.

I'm so SICK of coiling wires - stuffing them in the case and hoping they don't pop out - which they always do - and then they get stuck in little protrusions in the case preventing it from closing-

How hard can this be????

Just got a makita cordless - great case - but try to put the charger back in there and forget it - it's like closing a suitcase that's too full - you have to press it down hard to latch it.

Porter cable router - great case - router fits right in snuggly... but there's no where to put the wire - you can try to be neat with it, but it won't fit - you have to hold the lid down and feed the wire in in little bits to get it in there.

Milwaukee hammer drill...

I could go on for hours here.

Milwaukee angle grinder - great canvas bag - just don't try to close it with the grinder in there.

CAN'T STAND IT.

What's so frustrating is they go through the whole manufacturing proccess to make the bag/box anyways -thats where all the cost is - why not just spend an extra .002 and make it a little BIGGER.

Ok - got it out of my system.

I'm better now.

And I should give credit to milwaukee's sawzall with the metal case. That one fits the wire pretty well...

(but not the saw if you've got a large blade in it!)
