Grain Bin Lid Converted Into Rolling "Tote Pan"
Buddy Hoopes, Beloit, Ohio: "Many companies sell battery-powered drills, but I have yet to see one that's equipped with a hang-up hook. So I use nylon ties to make my own hang-up hooks, and they work great. It lets me hang the drill on an S-hook on my belt. Also, I keep hooks on my work table and table saw where they're always handy.
  "I converted an ordinary grain bin lid into a handy, rolling Štote pan'. It works great for everything from changing oil to holding tools and bolts. I got the lid from the company I work for as they didn't need it any more. I installed four 2-in. caster wheels to the top side of the lid and then turned it upside down. I had bed liner sprayed on the inside of the lid. An all-thread bolt covered with plastic hose makes a dandy handle on one side of the lid. I also painted the lid Deere green and added the Deere logo."
