    Wow! That toolbox of Studley's! Wow. I wonder how long it took him!? I also wonder if that isn't where the term "stud" came from after seeing that awesomeness!

    I for one am looking forward to the pictures.

    I am always interested in everyone's storage ideas for all these little gadgets that we love!

    Just two drawers and neither of them are "finished." I was a lazy, tardy person all weekend after getting it, lazily assembling things and being a lazy lazer who lazes. :D

    The first pic is batteries, battery operated stuff, things to see close-up (loupes) and things to see things farther away...monoculars.

    Second one is mostly folders and very small, PSK-sized fixed blades.

    Those are pretty cool! If it was a regular tool box with standard tools in the drawers, I would probably get some of them this week. I doubt if this kind of gear will ever find a "standard layout" because it gets loaded and unloaded in various packs, etc., from time to time and I like the flexibility of being able to do what I want with it.

    Understood, i could never put them in my old box becasue I had small tool "kits" for differnt car manufacturers that would change often. Also i lost tools so oftten that you never knew if the replacment would be the same.

    The organization is just "there" because it is a tool chest. For me, it's all about actually keeping it so it doesn't walk out the door. ;)

    Scored some stainless steel inserts from a couple windshield wipers today at work. Have to find some time to lock them up in a vise and file on them some. ;)
