MYCHANIC Sidekick is Rick's March Pick

The Family Handyman: Rick's Pick

Roll around stool keeps tools at your fingertips. 

I really like my trusty rolling mechanic's stool because it saves my knees when I work on cars and small engines. But I'm going to give it up for this new rolling Sidekick stool / tool chest from MYCHANIC ($99) because it has all the features my current stool lacks. 

I love the two large drawers with the ball-bearing slides - they hold all my most-used tools and spray cans. The handy tool rack provides quick access to screwdrivers and pliers and keeps them off the floor while I roll around. 

I especially like the two flip-down magnetic slide trays that hold the nuts and bolts I remove. The 3-in. rubber wheels don't get stuck in cracks like the wheels in my old stool, and the thick seat cushion, well, you know. The Sidekick stool is perfect for garage and home use.
