Hi Guys,

My trusty old H-frame Big Jim box is getting tired. I'm looking to replace with the box which I've seen on some youTube clips. It has a coloured base part and what looks like a removable clear plastic top piece which seems to have small compartments in it.
I cannot find this box on the internet!

Does anyone know what this box is called and where I can get one?

Many thanks

Mike

Hi MC9

I got one of those at Westpack. They sell all kinds of plastic containers etc.

If I am correct it is called a Mac Gyver.

Thanks Pieter,

I managed to find the box. Although it is called a macGyver, the one I found was called a Formosa tackle box.

Now I've just got to wait for lockdown to finish so I can actually get one!!

Stay safe

Mike
