    For small and easy access I have a little travel toolbox made by Festool . Just like @austin has . It’s like a go box . Doesn’t carry everything thow .

    I’ve got a couple of those. A tall one and a short one. They are super handy imo.

    I was thinking of picking up the small toolbox . My thing is I can’t stack them on top of each other .

    Always willing to learn .

    Sure you can. You just can’t have any thing sticking up out of it.

    Here is my new set up. It’s nice I can click them together and take them all together.

    That’s a nice system really. Nice it all stacks together.

    That’s my problem I’m always over stuffing it with tools and materials so it’s hard to stack them .

    I only have one tote so I keep it on top. I wouldn’t mind getting another one in the future though. But I can see how it could be a problem

    I had previously tried, tool boxes, bags, and even the bucket buddies for hand tools. I have now settled on the Dewalt Tough Boxes and think this will be it for awhile. My biggest issue now is just figuring out which boxes work best for which tasks.

    You know that’s a really tough act to follow @rovik. How do you manage to keep it looking like that?

    BE the change you want to see.

    Thanks for the comments guys 🙂



    @smallerstick
    , the key is to clean the tools and put it back in the right place after use.

    Here are some more drawer pictures of my toolbox. I still have 3 more drawers to fill.

    That’s some serious organizing there. Tool boxes like that should be like this.

    That’s excellent organizing. I have a small snap on cabinet. I tried to eliminate triples and quadruples of my sockets out of sanity.
    I don’t even do much mechanical work but aquired a lot of these tools.

    I set up a bucket buddy 15 years ago as a temp measure while I built up my shop expecting to change that at one point. I’m still using it and have plans to change. Even built a wheeled caddy for it to move it around my shop as needed. I guess what i found I liked about it is that it is compact for space and I can find things at a glance.

    Ivan that tool box layout is very nice. You did a good job maximizing the space in each drawer. Some guys feel that tool organization is not necessary or too much trouble. As a young mechanic like everybody else I just threw my tools in the drawer and figured that was good enough. Then I lost a few tools by leaving them in customers cars and my Snap-on dealer showed me how to organize each drawer and then scan them at the end of the job for any open spaces that would alert me to a missing tool. Haven’t lost a tool since 1975.

    I noticed that as well, but Ivan made liberal use of the non-slide drawer liners which I am a big fan of. Put those in and the tools stay put.
