Additional Information


Keep the Zippers Clean & Lubricated

Over time, dirt and grit will “clog” the zipper coils preventing them from staying closed. To keep this from happening, clean and lubricate your zippers twice a year (more often if you work on a job site with a high amount of airborne debris). To clean the coils: Scrub them with soapy water; a tooth brush works very well. After scrubbing the coils, blow them out with an air hose to dislodge any other fine grit that didn’t dislodge with the brush. To lubricate the coils: Apply a silicone spray, beeswax or a zipper lubricant.

Protect the Zippers From Sharp Objects and/or Excessive Heat

Any sharp object or heat source is capable of permanently damaging the zippers. Once a zipper coil is cut or singed the zipper will not function and in most cases is not repairable. Most of the cut zipper coils we see are the result of sharp tools stored inside the bag with the sharp side facing up. Make sure to keep the sharp edges of your tools facing down in your bag and away from the zipper coils.

Don’t Overstuff the Bag

Overstuffing your tool bag will very likely cause significant stress on the zippers that is above and beyond what the bag was built for and will eventually cause the zipper(s) to separate. If you have to work hard to close your zipper(s), your tool bag is most likely overstuffed… proceed with caution!

    I bought this bag specifically for my timber framing tools. It is very well made. The “slick” pouches are not long enough to hold my slicks (knew this before I bought it) and they are kind of a pain to use anyways. You have to remove a bunch of stuff to get at the bottom pouch. I had hoped some of the pockets on the outside would fit my block plane, they are too slim. Obviously, it’s a big bag so it gets heavy. Carrying it against my hip with the shoulder strap, the side of the bag bows in, I think it will eventually bend my framing square stored behind the slick pouches. The size and layout of pouches and pockets definitely could have better thought out to accommodate the tools of the trade it’s marketed for. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great tool bag, but it’s not perfect for timber framing. I’ll make work, but probably get another bag for stuff I don’t want to pile in the middle like planes, squares, honing stuff, large or long bits. 5 stars if you’re looking for a giant bag to hold a lot of tools, 3 stars if you’re looking for a timber framing bag.

    I just purchased this bag and it is by far my favorite of the four Veto bags I own. I named this bag, “The Beast” because it is exactly that! While I am not a framer but rather an AV guy and this bag holds every tool I need including my 3 Milwaukee drill/ drivers with room to spare! I have been looking a long time for a bag that could hold every tool I need for whatever situation I faced and I have finally found it! Thanks Veto!
