I use a similar model of organizer to carry my decks.

TCC is quite right that the cups that come with it are not desirable for sleeved cards. However, when you remove the cups, you can hold 16 regular-size Boulder deck boxes in the case itself. More importantly, it is a model that is stackable with others like it; the side clips allow multiple organizers to stick together. I also like the additional security of having two sets of latches to keep the lid on. I'm able to carry basically my whole collection in 3 of them stuck together. It's a really solid value if you've already got deck boxes but want a secure way to carry a bunch at once.

u/akumpf · 17 pointsr/CNC

I've been looking into this space (best medium-cost maker/builder/fab tools) over the past couple of months, and here are my recommendations so far...

  • CNC Mill (router) - For doing wood, plastic, and some light metal work, the Shapeoko 3 stands above the rest. It runs around $1.2k with a router included and can cut 16"x16"x3". You'll still need mill/router bits and materials, but pretty awesome for the price range. Note that they also just started selling larger versions (goes up to 33"x33"x3") for a few hundred dollars more. To move up to the next professional level but still on a budget, I'd consider building your own via CNCRouterParts Pro Kits (48”x48”x12”, $8k total).

  • 3D Printer - The LulzBot TAZ 5 stands above the rest because of the range of materials it can print (with a special high temperature hot end) and its build area (11.7”x10.8”x9.8”). It's recently been reviewed by Make as the "Best Overall 3D Printer" which is a pretty high endorsement. It runs a little expensive ($2.2k) but looks like it's one of the best bets if you're looking to get into 3D printing.

  • Lathe - You can get a mini lathe (7”x16”, $1.3k) in the price range you're considering, and while it may be a bit too speciality and manual, they're a great tool to have in your workshop. Especially if you like making round things.

  • Laser Cutter - To get a decent laser cutter (not just engraving, but actually cutting materials) that won't break down, catch fire, release noxious fumes, or potentially blind you is currently around $4k minimum. There are a lot of cheap "eBay" laser cutters out there, but when you start to add up everything and weigh the risks they aren't really all that much cheaper. The two stand out models I've been considering are the FullSpectrum (40W, $6k) and the "coming soon" Glowforge Pro (45W, $4.8k).

  • Electronics - You didn't mention this, but if you're looking at getting your hands dirty making things, electronics is now a pretty crucial component to support. The big ticket items (like an oscilloscope) are now a lot more reasonable than they were even 5 years ago and sites like SparkFun carry a lot of electronic components and tutorials that make it easy to get started even if you don't have much background in circuitry (yet!). My short list would include: a Rigol 50MHz, 4Chan, color disp, 4 probe oscilloscope ($450), a nice Weller soldering iron ($320), a soldering fume extractor ($70), some helping hands ($10), a Siglent signal generator ($360), and some nice boxes to keep your parts sorted ($20).

    Now go make some awesome things!
u/XsiKarrade · 12 pointsr/EDH

Not joking

Each of the smaller trays fits a (non double sleeved) deck easily, and the larger trays I use for Planechase/Archenemy cards with die bricks, and the other has a notepad and a few pens. It's pretty big but it's also really hilarious.

The compartments come out easily and go back in easily so you can take each 'compartment' out when dealing with that deck. When it closes it locks and nothing gets shuffled inbetween compartments.

My friends laughed but honestly this has done good for me, other than it being fairly large.

eyyy! I put the decks in sideways with commander on top.

u/spaceyjdjames · 10 pointsr/magicTCG

I use one of these. It holds up to 12 decks (though you need to buy 2 to get the correct compartments for that)

u/GrandMoffFinke · 9 pointsr/XWingTMG

I’ve always really liked the Stanley storage units:

Stanley 014725 25-Removable Compartment Professional Organizer

u/hiddenpoint · 9 pointsr/magicTCG

Just use one of these:


I used to have individual deck boxes for all my commander decks and switched them all to this. Fits up to 12 double-sleeved commander decks, or cut back to 11, and you have space for dice/tokens/etc.

u/Mr_Finesse · 9 pointsr/EDH

I use this:
It's basically indestructible (maybe I wouldn't drive a car over it) but it protects my 10 decks from my 3 year old well enough. The compartments come right out and can be shuffled around to suit needs. I find it handles all of the extra stuff as well dice, tokens, etc.

u/danwbruner · 9 pointsr/EDC

I got mine here for $93:

Amazon and Harbor Freight have a slightly different one available for $80, but I prefered the design and size of mine over it...

Here is a link to the alternate model on Amazon:

Even though mine was slightly more expensive than the alternate model, to me it was worth it.  Mine is more like a "jewelry box".  The alternate model looks more like a "tool box".  Mine is slightly less tall and has smooth round edges.  The alternet is taller, chunkier and has sharper edges.  One of the complaints that I read about the alternate model is..  Although it has two locks, one for the top and one for the front, they lock keys do not match...  Mine does not have any locks.  Rather, it has a very nice metal "clasp", which when twisted, holds everything closed.  Overall, either of these boxes would be great for storing your gadgets and gear.  Again, I simply prefered the design of the one I picked, over the alternate model.

Also, mine didn't come with a mirror (a real one would come with a mirror)...  So, today, I added a mirror.  I used a 3" concave x20 power mirror, a magnet, a washer, and some double-stick tape, so It's removable.  All from Walmart for around $10.

The removable concave mirror is not intended to be used for vanity.  Rather, it is to be used as a magnifying/inspection tool...  When held properly, it can be used just like magnifying glass.

EDIT:  I bought some houseplants today, to keep it company 😊

u/JasterMereel42 · 8 pointsr/Workbenches

I use the Stanley 10 bin and 25 bin trays. They're also great for my loose Lego collection so I have a few spares and pull one for whenever I need one in the garage or in the house.

This isn't a perfect solution though. I had to build a rack in order to store all of these containers. Also, it is a 2 step process to get anything out: 1) remove the tray from the rack and 2) open the container to get what I need. I'm fine with this though because it is ultra portable and the 2 step method isn't too much of a hinderance. Also, this way the storage density is pretty high and I can keep a lot of stuff in a small space.

u/AnalogKid2112 · 8 pointsr/EngineeringStudents

I picked up a bunch of cheap part drawers like these when they were on sale at a local store. Very easy to organize stuff if you have the desk space.

u/fatangaboo · 8 pointsr/AskElectronics

I use these to organize and store SMD components.

I use these enormously big-ass cabinetrys to store thru-hole components such as ICs in DIP packages.

u/starcade_ · 7 pointsr/XWingTMG

u/prebres · 7 pointsr/arduino

I have 6 of these: Akro-Mils 10164 64 Drawer Plastic Parts Storage Hardware and Craft Cabinet, 20-Inch by 16-Inch by 6-1/2-Inch, Black

u/GobbleThisObelisk · 7 pointsr/electronic_cigarette
u/donoftheslum · 6 pointsr/AnimeFigures

I use this Akro Mills container.

Fairly cheap and can store lots of smaller accesories. Not sure what size figures you have, but these cases are perfect for Nendoroid sized parts.

Each bin has a indent in the middle to separate it into 2 with a divider (I use cardboard I cut from the box it came in). Each divided spot is perfect for a Nendoroid.

If a figure has bigger or lots of accesories, just leave it as the bigger size. It even fits some spare parts from 1/7 & 1/8 sized scale figures. Like Asukas spare head from her Jersey Version.

u/TheChaoticDoctor · 6 pointsr/KingkillerChronicle

I've got roughly 3lb's of chessex dice; I use this to store them all at this point. But thank you for the offer. :)

u/jmblock2 · 6 pointsr/santashelpers

Has he applied for any jobs yet? I was given one of those leather pads with paper inside and a holder for resumes (something like this) except it was from my undergrad university with their emblem. Definitely gives you some confidence for interviews and recruiting sessions. Also you can get him some nice resume paper to go with it. That lasted me for years.

I also enjoyed having one or two of these demotivational posters in my room. Depends on his humor and if he has barren walls like I did.

If you know more details about which raspberry pi he has, you could get some shield extensions. These are boards that expand its capabilities. There are also newer boards with better specs. Also with two boards you can of course make them talk to each other ;)

Depends on his area of interest and your budget, but you could get him some kind of [introductory FPGA kit] ( or DE0-Nano.

Tools... so many tools he might be interested in. USB logic analyzers are so cheap these days and go well with hobby boards. Again not sure your budget, so you can go all sorts of ranges here (Open Workbench Logic Sniffer or scanaplus or Saleae Logic 8 or a china clone of Saleae Logic 8). Saleae or the knockoff I think are the better options for the software compatibility. He may be in need of a soldering iron or a multimeter.

Something else unique, you could get him a "gift card" (they don't really sell them) or an IOU to a PCB printing service. Ask him to design his own board and you'll pay $X of the service. You'll want to make sure he knows the price structure on the website because they charge per square inch and it depends on his design how many layers he may need. He makes the schematic and they will print some circuit boards for him. They won't mount the parts, just do the schematic and he would have to hand solder the components.

If he likes old videogames you could get him some old school USB controllers and tell him to install lakka on his rasberry pi, or just get him a new Raspberry Pi3 to dedicate it as an old-school console emulator. It is quite impressive how many consoles they have emulated.

And back to more tools... more micro screwdriver bits than you would actually need. You can get him a starter pack of resistors, capacitors, and other assorted electronics sparkfun. There are also so many buttons, switches, LED screen displays, etc. that he probably wouldn't want to buy on his own. Maybe you could get a container with an assortment of circuit components (resistors, capacitors, transistors, and other sensors). Careful! This can add up real quick. All types of sensors exist... ultrasonic rangefinder, stress, photocell, temperature, etc. etc. endless!.

u/Karnblack · 6 pointsr/EDH

I haven't had an issue with these deck boxes either and I've kept some decks in them for almost 10 years. If I end up dropping one and cracking it I'm only out a couple of bucks rather than $10+.

I transport up to 12 decks in the Stanley Organizer ( like so: Decks for Magic Fest Las Vegas

If I only want to take up to 4 decks those clear plastic deck boxes easily fit into the Ultimate Guard Arkhive:

u/quackor_sg · 6 pointsr/EDH

I bought two of the 10-compartment versions so I can have all deck-sized trays in one box, but upon receiving it I noticed you can actually fit the nice crystal commander boxes in place of the yellow compartments, so you should be fine just buying one and replacing the double-size trays with those.

u/LucanDesmond · 6 pointsr/EDH

Everyone has already made great suggestions for your current collection so I'm just going to add a suggestion for the future if your collections expands. I have 22 decks. For a collection of that size, all those individual boxes are a pain, get these:

u/DemThighGaps · 6 pointsr/steroids


Edit: The empty compartment is for wipes. I just ran out today :(

u/__Why · 5 pointsr/declutter

Strap in, this got kind of long! I hope it's useful to someone.

I too have the "need a lot of bins and boxes and whatnot" situation because of my and my partner's hobbies. I sew and crochet and embroider and work with leather, and he works with electronics and 3d printers and so on. We share a small (10' x 10') room for our workspace and all of our most commonly accessed supplies.

Being someone who gets fixated on ideas frequently, I suggest that you open up your search to other options other than interlocking boxes. The reason I say this is that I am surrounded by bins and have been working with various sized bins to access things for a long time and I am tired of them. The problem is similar to what many other posters have mentioned: Getting items out of the boxes (even if they are small) is an Ordeal, especially if you have multiple boxes out, or if the box is very full and hard to put back together.

In general, a rule of thumb is to think about how you'll put your item away rather than how you'll access it. When we want access to something, it doesn't seem like a big deal to undo bins, bags, boxes, slide heavy things around, etc. because we get a reward at the end (yay, it's the thing! shiny!). After that, the idea of undoing all that stuff seems like a pain in the arse, and we just don't want to do it? (and what if we might need another thing from that bin? So, consider how you'll put it away, rather than how you'll get it out when designing a storage solution.

So, I am now moving away from the lidded box approach and encouraging my partner to do the same. Having watched Adam Savage's video describing first order retrievability, I am moving in that direction (although not yet to his ninjery level). Here's the video:

I suggest the following types of storage for smaller objects. Bins still work OK for larger objects but someday I'd like to move away from that too.

  • Akro-Mills Parts organization drawers. They come in many different sizes and types. They are durable, versatile, come with their own drawer dividers, they are wall mountable or usable on a desktop surface. We use these for all of the objects we reach for frequently for different applications (memory cards, bulldog clips, popsicle sticks, magnets, command hooks).

  • Stanley Organizer boxes. These boxes are extremely useful when you have a lot of tiny objects of different sizes to sort (like nuts, bolts and hardware or amigurumi eyes). There are bins in each storage thing that are fully re-arrangeable and removable - you can get several of these and customize each one to your needs and then pull out just the little bins you're interested in to work on. These have their place, but are best used as 'project' or 'many of one type' oriented storage

  • This video on using plastic bins as drawers. I did this for my two 4' workbenches and I love it. This allows me to quickly swap out project specific bins if I need to, and I now have the ease of access of drawers with the containerized pleasure of bins. I use these drawers every day for things like webbing and elastic storage, crochet hook storage, sewing machine accessories, sewing patterns, etc. I have currently taken to reserving one bin per workbench as a trash can and omg is that useful to have an in-table trash can - I'm thinking of drilling a hole in my benchtop so I can just swipe bits and pieces directly into the trash.

  • Pegboard / slat wall. I personally like the metal Wall Control brand because I have a love affair with magnets. I use this for thread storage (I can thread my machine directly from the wall, without moving spools around!), bobbin storage, clips, pins, tape that gets used daily (painters, duct, electrical, etc), instant access tools are mounted on magnetic bars attached to the board. I also stuck magnets on the back of a bunch of stuff (empty soup cans, plastic bins from the stanley boxes, thread locker, sewing machine oil, etc) and now I can just kind of throw those items at the board and they stick. Extremely efficient and functional. The various hooks and things are also highly useful. Comes in many different sizes and shapes (and colors!) with accessory kits optimized for different situations.

  • A tool chest (even if you don't have "normal tools"). We use this for hand tools - it is really nice to have screw drivers, wrenches, utility knives and tape measures at our finger tips. Ours holds a ton of stuff, fits on our metro wire shelving perfectly, and has held up like a champ in the 3 years we have it. Also it's metal, so I can stick things to it with magnets. We have this one:
u/JamesRiav · 5 pointsr/beadsprites

I recently purchased an Akro-Mils 64-drawer, and it has been absolutely magnificent. Each drawer comfortably stores a 1000 count bag of beads, with some room to spare. There is no back on the unit, which I thought was odd at first, but this has not been an issue in use. All in all, it has ended up being a really solid option for this hobby.

u/ZIIIIIIIIZ · 5 pointsr/lego

I just started on this venture myself, and I am planning on using some of these: to store the bricks in. They have different versions that include all large bins, and a mix of the two.

Now looking at your picture, if you can imagine for a minute, my plan is to have a worktable something like your bottom half, and then above mounted on the walls I would place those parts containers.

I was also thinking that on the workbench I would secure down some of the larger baseplates as a build/play area.

I have measure my wall, and I could hold 15 of those storage bins, but really i would only get about have or so due to the table.

In my mind this sounds good....but I will have to see how it goes....and post pictures!

u/rabk294 · 5 pointsr/AFOL

This probably isn't the answer you're looking for, but I'll give it to you anyway: sort by need. I'm a WWII diorama and vehicle builder. I have separate large plastic containers for brown plates, green plates, white plates, tan plates, dark tan plates, etc; all earth tones that I'll need a lot of for dioramas. I also have large bins for grass pieces and leaf pieces. I use small drawers for the vehicle parts that get used frequently. The rest of my parts are generally just used as "filler" parts for unseen sections of my dioramas, so they're sorted very roughly. I've included a link to the drawers that I use.

tl;dr: Depending on your building style, you'll need different organization. Experiment, and try to decide what's best for you. No two builders need the same organization.

u/kintexu2 · 5 pointsr/XWingTMG

I've got something like this from my local fishing tackle store. One tray holds rebels, one holds Imperials, one holds all the tokens, and the last tray holds my two damage decks and the dials. The top section holds bases, movement templates, and my lambda shuttles because they dont fit in the lower trays like everything else does.

u/putamare · 5 pointsr/AskReddit
u/shahdawg · 5 pointsr/EDH

I have one of these that I store a lot of my decks in. Very cheap too. And if you wanna replace the big bins with smaller one's theyre only ~$2

u/dablackcat0 · 5 pointsr/EDH

Buy yourself one of these puppies. It holds 12 decks. The compartments fit just about any 100+ deck box or you can just leave the deck in the compartment on its own.

u/cesarfalldown · 5 pointsr/mtgcube

I use a Stanley organizer. It has 10 compartments; 8 small and two large. The small compartments can each hold a double sleeved commander deck, the large compartments can hold about 200.

Stanley 10 Removable Bin Compartment Deep Professional Organizer

u/frostape · 5 pointsr/Warhammer40k

Just in my experience:

Tamiya Extra Thin Plastic Glue

Less than $10. I've used it to assemble my ~3000pt Ork army and I've only used about half the bottle


Mudder 21pc Pin Vice Set

About $12. Slightly more expensive than the absolute cheapest pin vice you can find...which I purchased and had a drill bit snap in less than a week. Then I bought this one and haven't looked back. The set of bits has a great size range, too.


Woodland Scenics Basing

Depending on what sort of basing material you want, it can be much, much cheaper to get it from Woodland Scenics (or other train hobby sites). Their containers are cheap and large, so if you find what you like you can cheaply get enough to last you a lifetime (or close to it).


Akro-Mils Storage Container

About $25. This was a bit of a splurge purchase, but it's been pretty nice for me so far. Before I got this, I just had bits organized into Ziploc bags. This was a nice way to organize everything and still make it accessible. Helpful for me because I've been doing a ton of kitbashing. If you're building following the instructions and kits 100%, you might not need this.


Army Painter Paints

They're on Amazon, too. Generally cheaper than GW paints, and pretty decent. Amazon has some other kits like one for Dwarves and one for Goblins, etc. Depending on the colors you want, you could probably save some money by buying the colors individually or buying a couple of those sets that have what you want. I've really enjoyed their metallic paints and their washes. If you get their Strong Tone wash and their Dark Tone wash, paint your model, brush the Strong Tone on clothes and skin and the Dark Tone on anything that's metal and it'll come out looking really good.

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/EDC

This at my 7 o'clock with a mini maglite (niteize LED and IQ cap upgrade), leatherman supertool 300, stainless ball point and retractable sharpie. Only worn for work. I also have a Kershaw tanto blur at my 1 o'clock in a knife pocket. I wear 5.11 pants/shorts with the built in knife pocket. Handy. As. Fuck.

u/beanmosheen · 5 pointsr/arduino

I did this for a while and honestly it sucked. It's way too fiddly and takes up too much space. Buy yourself one of these part bins and a box of the small baggies. The bags lay on their side and fit perfectly. I point the opening left and right alternating for each resistor group (i use number and decade order). I have over a thousand resistors in one drawer. Same thing with ceramic caps, electrolytics, and they're very easy to thumb through and grab one. If you want to get fancy you can put a piece of card stock between each group.

You now have all the other drawers to sort things and it only takes up a little bit of wall space.

u/ScaryCookieMonster · 5 pointsr/XWingTMG

I have this stupid monstrosity (Plano 1374) for my whole collection. One tray per faction, and can fit all my small ships, dials, cardboard ship tokens, plus both YT's, a Decimator and Shuttle, a Hound's Tooth, two Firesprays, and three Jumpmasters in three of the four trays (organized by faction). Maneuver templates, bases and pegs, bombs, and other non-faction stuff goes in the fourth.

Ghost goes in the top bin, of course. Nothing even remotely reasonable holds that business.

If I only need to take one squadron with me, like for a tournament, I can pack it all in a "Stanley Fatmax FMST14820 FatMax Deep Pro Organizer".

Edit: oh, repainted. Yeah, my suggestion has them rattling around a touch in the tournament box. I'm thinking simple bubble wrap bags, combined with generous dullcoat as a last painting step, for once I finish some repaints.

u/hudson15983 · 5 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

This is what I just ordered, can't tell you how it works yet but there was another person on here that had pictures with his collection inside.

I think that different toolboxes or tackleboxes is the real way to go unless you're willing to shell out the dough for the Armada foam.

u/WithOneSipOfTea · 5 pointsr/EDC
u/Cobalt_Anubis · 4 pointsr/EDH

This one is what I use. Its big, and obnoxious, but holds my current decks (14) in jewel cases laying flat, big dice bag, and 4 playmats. The inside has a rubber foam padding and it comes with some dividers (tho the are kinda cheap and will tear up the padding if you arent careful). The lid has a divider that can be removed and if you bend or remove the metal tabs on the lid (ment to keep the lid divider in place) you can fit even more decks if you place them on end.

With my set up i can set up with friends and be able to have a solid multiplayer game without anyone else needing to bring anything

*ninja edit: if you have prime it knocks $20 off the price making it much more worth it

u/Tropicalkings · 4 pointsr/EDH

As stated in other comments a cheap DSLR backpack will work well.

Another option is a part organizer:

This one can hold up to 12 double sleeved EDH decks.

Always be on the lookout, some of the best deckboxes out there are not made for cards but happen to work better than branded crap. I like to use the boxes my cellphone came in to hold whatever deck I take to FNM.

u/Sancho_IV_of_Castile · 4 pointsr/knifeclub

This does not include Squids or fixed blades, which have their own homes. The chest is made by Trinity, and while it's not the highest quality (it's sort of a Gerstner ripoff), it's perfect for knives. The Squids and fixed blades live in these aluminum gun cases, which are cheap, effective, and come in various sizes.

The little box at the end of the video containing three Canal Street Cutlery Boy's Knives (which is back in business) and a Shelby Mihalevich folder was given to me by Gary W. Graley in connection with a knife purchase, out of pure generosity on his part, because he's a great guy.

u/undress15 · 4 pointsr/EDC

I have this. It's very good for the price and looks cool. Really want a Gerstner one day though.

u/Darksol503 · 4 pointsr/XWingTMG

Stanley tool organizer. It literally fits X-Wing items perfectly and can be customized to your needs. I'm buying two more just in case... CHEAP on Amazon :)

u/anothergaijin · 4 pointsr/ITdept

That's pretty much my daily carry.

Some other things I'd suggest:

  • Phillips, flat and torx screw drivers or driver bits (various sizes)
  • Crossover cable (short as possible) and Female-Female RJ45 inline coupler - make any cable crossover!
  • Pocket-sized router/AP like this:
  • Velcro for cable ties
  • DVI/VGA, VGA/DVI adapters
  • Large (500gb) USB3 external drive. Got a nice one from work which I think was a Samsung - very small and fast

    My bigger toolbag has more specialised tools:

  • Network crimping tool, connector crimping tool
  • Punchdown tool
  • Basic cable tester tool, network toner and probe
  • Wire snips, wire stripper
  • Pliers, adjustable spanner, locking wrench
  • Allen wrench tools (metric, imperial and torx - Bondhus GorillaGrip brand)
  • Battery powered soldering iron, solder
  • Multimeter
  • Batteries of all sorts (AA, AAA, adapter for C, 9V, charger for AA/AAA)
  • 10M and 3M Cat6 straight cables with connectors, 10M Cat6 without connectors, box of Cat5 and Cat6A connectors and boots
  • SC-SC, LC-LC, SC-LC patch cables, SC-SC connector, LC-LC connector
  • GLC-T, GLC-SX-MM gbics
  • Very short C5, C7, C13 cables
  • 1.5M and 5M power extension cables
  • Power cord splitter (much, much better than a power board since you can always use every connector)
  • SDXC/SDHC SD, miniSD, microSD, CF USB card reader
  • "Twin" network cable and inline couplers (instructions)
  • "Multi-cable" -
  • Box of random useful screws
  • Box of M5 and M6 cage nuts, cage nut tool
  • Various tape (double sided, masking, easy remove, duct, electrical etc)
  • Non-contact infrared thermometer
u/BZeeB · 4 pointsr/beadsprites

This is what I use. Unfortunately they are not completely sealed cubby spaces, so if you jostle it hard some of the beads may leak out into other cub holes. But each space fits 1000 beads very comfortably ~60 colors. If you mount it like its designed for you'll never have a problem.

u/chilidirigible · 4 pointsr/AnimeFigures

A couple of years ago, /u/DancingQueen5961 recommended this storage cabinet by Akro-Mils. I filed it in my wishlist and sat on the idea for a while.

Now I've finally bought one. Two of the concerns raised in the original thread do apply, specifically:

These single-sized drawers can't fit larger accessories. (The case with the multiple drawer sizes would be best for that.)

Front lip may catch on things when the drawer is opened. I might not use the figma bags for this reason. However, I'd probably still use some buffer material in the drawers to keep things from bouncing around too much.

The issue with too many drawers doesn't apply in my case: I actually have more figures with accessories than the cabinet has drawers, though as mentioned not all of them will have all of their accessories be suitable for the cabinet. But it's enough to work as I'm planning to use it for parts storage for the figures that I tend to change parts on often.

Now to actually finish loading the thing.

u/Kuiyy · 4 pointsr/lego

Akro-mils 64 drawer seems to be what most people here use.

u/robotgraves · 4 pointsr/diypedals

I'll start with a meta one. How do you organize your parts?

I am currently using 4 of these:

with a mix of 15 of these:

And I feel like i just can't keep things as organized as I'd like. What do you do?

u/Cold_Sore_Bay · 4 pointsr/beadsprites

Thanks! I'm hoping I can pull off a decent finish. Nervous about the ironing phase since this will be my largest project to date. As for the organizer I came across them in post on this sub from a few years back. Here's the link to it on Amazon

The drawers perfectly fit a 1000 pack of beads. I just cut the names of the colors off the bags and tape them to drawers and then organize them in a rainbow spectrum.

u/KungFuKao · 4 pointsr/beadsprites

For Part A, I have a 64-drawer container that has Perler in it, with a handful of Nabbi and Hama beads filler colors (though I rarely use them), and a 32-drawer container that has all of the Artkal series colors that I find useful. I use this: (the real version I bought at Akro-Mils, I just did a little lazy Google-Fu)

Part B: I always fully melt one side and display that, and just barely melt the other side, enough so that the fully melted side doesn't cause the sprite to bow out. In my personal experience, the flat side tends to get a better reaction from most people.

You always have to keep in mind that it's all about customer preference, rather than personal. When I first started selling, this was my biggest mistake. I really like old school RPGs, so I brought Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 4 and 6... and I barely sold a thing. Do not limit your output to niche games that you really like. Pokemon, Zelda, Mario, and Minecraft are my biggest sellers, by a landslide. You have to stick to mainstream if you want to move product. Do a handful of niche stuff for those rare people that played them and find your booth, but the bulk needs to be the more recognizable items if you want to make money :)

u/fox112 · 4 pointsr/magicTCG

as you can see in the pic it has 2 extra large compartments. If you're at a home depot or something just grab the normal sized compartments from a different box and you can comfortably fit 12 commander decks, it's really sturdy, I'm a big fan.

u/alf666 · 4 pointsr/EDH

For those wondering what he means by "Stanley toolboxes", this is the product he is talking about.

I have the same thing and got it through amazon. Here's a link.

u/parametrek · 4 pointsr/flashlight

For an 18650 anglehead? Pretty much any 1" holster should work. I prefer the fully-enclosed kind that use snaps instead of velcro. For example this or this or this or this or if you wanted the smallest possible holster that would just barely fit the H03 this.

u/HeloRising · 3 pointsr/DicePorn

I'm a huge advocate for dice boxes. Don't get me wrong, I love dice bags, but I'll take a box over a bag for general use any day.

Best place to get them is a thrift store. Comb through and I guarantee you'll stumble across something wonderful. Old jewelry boxes are the best, you can find ones from the 40's and 50's made of solid wood and they're virtually indestructible and most already have felt inlaid in them already.

You can use these for storage and rolling if you get the right one. If the lid comes off, some felt will turn it into a handy dice tray for rolling. You can buy a dice tray if your storage box doesn't allow for it. They're relatively inexpensive and it'll be the best thing you can buy for gaming since dice.

Craft stores will have ready-made boxes that you can stain and sand if you're feeling DIY but I avoid these generally because the woods are a bit softer and the boxes themselves are not very well constructed. On top of that, they can be expensive and you still have to do a lot of the work yourself. Best to go with a Goodwill find; much cheaper and you get a better box out of it in the end.

For general storage, I tend to go for a screw case. They're dirt cheap and keep everything sorted but be sure you get one with wells deep enough for your dice.

I use an open top box lined with felt that I got as a giftbox years back in conjunction with a bag. I have an amazingly soft purple leather pouch that I use to transport the dice I'm going to use for that game then I just roll in the box. Everything goes back into the screw case when I get home and no dice get lost.

...I really need to stop watching Good Eats.

Link for the lazy.

I'm actually kicking around an idea for a rack to hold red solo cups. They hold WAY more, are dirt cheap, and are easy to replace.

Think of a shelf with lots of holes cut into it the diameter of the 2/3 line on the solo cup (the beer/ 12oz line).

u/Incursus · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG

This is the best I've found. I cut the plastic out and stick it in the bins to hold the ships.

u/icepyrox · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG

Was it something like this??

As for me, I was using what /u/Nybear21 suggested, but have outgrown it for two reasons:

  • Mainly, I insist on using Sir Willibald's Microhangers and Gearboxes, which takes up more room in the tackleboxes than putting everything in there loosely would cause/create
  • I have everything from the game, including epics and stuff and there just isn't quite enough room there.

    I still highly recommend that tacklebox or something that supports the Plano 3700 series of boxes (the 1374 was the gold standard while it was made, to the point that the top reviews on Amazon were all about X-wing).

    As for what I currently use, I bought a bulk of literature mailers (10x10x2 corrugated cardboard) and put those microhangers/gearboxes in there in a stack. The epics are on shelves in display that I carry in their original plastic when I transport them to the store.

u/keen4e · 3 pointsr/LegoStorage

Hi. The number of drawers is really dependent on your piece size and variety.

As for categorization, I think I can help! It's definitely not practical to keep each part in its own drawer. Instead most people sort by part (not color!), then decide on classifications as far as what to keep together. You want to keep your categories sufficiently broad, so you can easily know where to find things like plates, arches, bricks, technic pieces, etc but not be so cumbersome that you can't keep up with where things are. Labeling your drawers once you have them is very useful for this as well. As for the specific categories themselves, it really depends on your unique collection but I find this to be a good starting point:


You can branch out from there based on the pieces you have more/less of. The first modification I would recommend is to keep all 1x1 bricks/tiles/plates separate because they just sink to the bottom of a big drawer otherwise and are hard to track down. I have a bunch of tiny bins just for them in a Stanley organizer like this: but the akro mils drawers are also highly recommended here


Hope this helps!

u/serfrock · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

This is an idea I've had, but have not put into practice yet. Buy one of these screw organizers, and use a dry-erase marker to write on the lid over the relevant nuts/bolts/screws. I guess there's a chance that you'll wipe off the labels by mistake, but at least you won't mix them up if you're good about closing it.

u/Sheldonzilla · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG

I'm using this currently, works like a charm. Here's a pic in action

I have a decent sized collection, and either stuff a lot of models in here, or less models but pack their cards in too. Check out BBQ for cheaper and more varied alternatives.

I usually use foam to carry models, but X Wing models are sturdy enough to be alright.

u/SwingDancerStrahd · 3 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

By paper mini you mean Pathfinder pawns?

u/cyberlink420 · 3 pointsr/Legodimensions

Makes sense; mine are Stanley containers too, and they let you move around the slots as well.

u/anonymouzes · 3 pointsr/LegoStorage

Organized using Stanley 25, Stanley 10, Sterlite 1961, Sterlite 1962 and ziplock bags. In the Sterlites I have all my 2xX's, 1xXs, "slopes" (anything with non-right angles on it) and "inspiration pieces" (unique pieces such as tower spires and ship hulls). In the Stanleys, I keep all other pieces organized as specifically as made sense. There's still some further sorting I can do in those (e.g. all studs are together, not separated by color), but this feels like a huge win.

u/retrogreq · 3 pointsr/computertechs

I use one of those, plus a laptop backpack. All my tools go in the bag, and cables/velcro/cable ties go in the backpack (with the laptop). The center part of the bag is big enough to carry lots of parts (anything short of a tower, really...I've stuck a monitor in there a few times).

u/Zip668 · 3 pointsr/Construction very fond of this one. Great build quality.

u/akaemi · 3 pointsr/Legodimensions

The manly tackle box versions: and

I have the 3 tray one - it comes with one shallow tray and two deeper ones. The deeper ones fit the vehicles nicely - I don't think the vehicles will fit in the shallow tray, but I honestly haven't tried.

The 4 tray one is the same overall size, it just has 4 shallow trays, no deep ones.

I forget Amazon does targeted advertising, just because I see a link to the manly tackle box version from the pink craft version, doesn't mean everyone will. :-)

Edit: Yes, that is exactly what I purchased, but it came to me in black. But I actually bought this exact one.

u/getdamonkey · 3 pointsr/lego

I sort by a combination of color and piece using a three tiered system.

Tier 1 - Small Parts Storage
All of a given piece are put into a drawer at this point. As more drawers are needed, I begin to sort into colors. Once I fill 4 drawers, I move to Tier 2

Tier 2 - Stanley Cases
Most of my brick and plates are in these. Each has ten interchangeable trays so you can reorganize to have a case you can take with you for a given project. I mostly use the 10 compartment model but own a couple of the 25 compartment for things like 1x1 tiles that come in a large number of colors. Once one of the large compartments is full, I move to tier 3.

Tier 3 - Shoebox storage
Each of these holds 6.5 qts of brick which is equivalent to one Pick a Brick case from the LEGO store. If one of these gets filled up, I start a second one.

Most of my collection is sorted this way. I do use these for minifigs and plastic drawers for things like bionicle parts.

My collection got way too big for the Wilton caddies so I ended up buy a shelf from target for my mudroom to hold all of my baking pans, cake rounds, boxes, confectioners sugar (in a container), ap flour (also in container), etc. I also bought and mounted a tool box of sorts on the wall. It’s a large rectangular storage cabinet with something like 24 drawers that I’ve labeled with types of tips, couplers, sprinkles, flower nails, gel colors, etc. I use reusable bags that lay on top just fine. Icing spatulas live in a utensil holder next to my mixer. Turntable lives in a cabinet beneath where I work with the my fondant. That’s about as organized as I could get.

Are those the Stanley Fatmax Deep Pro Organizers?

I read that they are great for storing Magic the Gathering EDH decks.

^^brought ^^to ^^you ^^by ^^carl's ^^jr.

u/Kerrus · 3 pointsr/EDH

It's this one:

"Stanley Fatmax Deep Organizer Pro"

De-Walt also makes them (same size, same everything) with one exception: the De-Walt ones don't have the water seal, which is hugely annoying because they're less expensive at the construction stores I buy them at by a bit. I picked three up at Rona on Black Friday, paying 30$ (CAD) each, which was a huge steal.

De-walt does however make these: which DO have a water seal (and the compartments are the same size/interchangeable) so I have one of those for when I want to go out somewhere (I don't have a car, so carrying a giant pile of commander decks is generally a losing prospect since they're bloody heavy. Six is manageable).

The small De-Walt one DOES have the water seal (just not their big ones, idk).

u/drozenski · 3 pointsr/magicTCG

If you can return the Stanly organizer. While not a completely bad product other companies make much better products.


I have both of these and they are amazing. The DeWalt Parts Organizers



The box's will not allow water in when sealed, if they get left in the rain, soda,beer,water whatever your cards are safe.

Super strong plastic

The latches are locking metal not plastic

The larger one comes with 10 storage spaces. 2 large 8 small The smalls fit 60 card ultra pro deck box's perfectly with room for a pack of sleeves, perfect fits or what every you wanted to squeeze in. The two larger box's will fit one large ultra pro box and one 60 card ultra pro box at the same time and still have room for sideboards, sleeves whatever.


The box's are interchangeable between the two. I normally travel with the smaller one. It allows me to bring 2 commander decks, 1 standard deck, 2 modern decks, perfect fits, 200 sleeves, 2-3 top loaders, six twenty sided dice and 40 small six sided dice for counters. The dice are stored on either side of the handle not the main box's. Even with all this. I still have 1 empty box so at the end of the night i have a place for my draft deck, any cards i win and more.


The larger one is perfect for going to a GP or large event. You can bring 10-12 decks with you including all the stuff i said above like sleeves, dice, counters, etc.


It also makes it much harder for some one to take a deck from you. This is going to be by your side not draped across the back of a chair. The latches make noise when they are opened and are much more difficult then moving a zipper.


Ill take pictures of how mine is setup when i get home.


Edit: Also these box's are just the first layer of protection. You should have a box/carring case > Deck box's > single or double sleeved cards.


Multiple layers of protection will keep your cards safe.


Edit Edit: Images

Closed all packed up



Everything Inside


2 Commander decks, 2 modern decks, 1 standard deck, Five 20 sided dice, 40 six sided dice for counters, 2 top loaders, 100 perfect fits, 100 loose sleeves i use for drafts and loan to people, 1 deck side board that wouldn't fit in a box with the deck, 200 unopened sleeves ( Comes in handy if some one forgets their i can trade them for cards i want) or if i just need them for some reason.


And it still has some room. Unopened packs do fit with the commander decks i can fit one in each end. At the end of the night the spot with loose sleeves will fit a full draft night of cards + 2-3 packs.

u/m1stertim · 3 pointsr/livesound

I have a Pelican 1510 with dividers that move around depending on what I'm carrying. My adapters live in the lid organizer, and my small cables, headphones, and all the other usual gig stuff (changes depending on the gig) goes in the bottom.

I have used organizers in the past, which are great for just adapters, but on my own, I don't need that many adapters.

u/Vandlan · 3 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

I'm going to be a bit contrarian and say you may want to give the game a second thought before getting invested in it. Not that you shouldn't, because it's an amazing game, but there are a few other things to think of in your situation before diving in.

  1. Is there an active Armada community where you're going to school or within a reasonable driving distance? It would suck to buy stuff then not have anyone to play with or have an underwhelming pool of opponents.

  2. How do you plan to store your stuff? The thing about Armada is that the more powerful you make your fleet, the more space they take up. I'd highly recommend looking into getting something like this to keep your ships condensed into one location. A standard three ring binder and some card sleeve pages will help enormously in keeping your upgrades sorted. College apartments and dorms can be very tiny, and they get smaller if you have to share a room.

  3. Where will you have space to play? Does your living situation allow for a 3'x6' table? Or would you end up only being able to play smaller games on a 3'x3'? Not that you can't enjoy the game on a small field, but it's much more fun on a full size table.

    Again I'm not saying you shouldn't consider buying it. But, before you do I'd answer those questions first and see if it's something feasible for your current situation.
u/Fraun_Pollen · 2 pointsr/LegoStorage

Thanks for the tip on depth. Going to give Akro-Mils a shot since Papimax is a bit intense for what I'm thinking. Will be trying out 2 of the 24 drawer and 1 of the 44 drawer and will see how far that gets me by sorting by brick area (too many unique pieces to keep true storage-by-part affordable). For large flats that get grouped together, I may end up using a pair of simple 3 drawer organizers I have laying around. Worse case I'll get another 44 and take advantage of dividers.

u/mgsickler · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

u/elenaxmarie · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice
  1. Buy a 24 pack of wooden hangers and limit the clothes that I hang up in my closet to those 24 pieces. (Not including pants/logo t-shirts/camis, ect). I currently have about 48 plastic hangers from target (replacement for my mismatched hangers). This will allow me to focus on buying quality pieces that are "worthy" of the wood hangers and to eliminate the clothes that no longer bring me joy.

  2. Buy more jewelry! I almost never wear jewelry because I can't justify spending $25-50 for a necklace with a student budget. I wear a lot of neutral colors and feel like I need a few statement pieces.

  3. Buy a hardware cabinet (something like this) to store my jewlery in. I also want to find cute buttons to store matching stud earrings with so I never lose one.

  4. Keep track of my clothing purchases over the next year.

u/kikisaurus · 2 pointsr/beadsprites

I started using the same type of container that you listed. I will never go back. It was so annoying to use for me. It was difficult to get the beads out that I needed without spilling colors into each block around it.

That being said, I use one similar to this. Well, I use two of about that size and one that's larger.

When I do my pieces, or am sorting large containers of mixed beads, I can just pull out the drawers I need to bring over to my work area. It's also relatively thin and not very tall so it would easily fit in the top area of a closet or something tall and out of reach from the little kiddo.

As far as moving with it goes, the beads will come out of the back if you lay it on it's side...when we moved, I took each drawer and put dumped it in a plastic bag labelled with the color name. When we arrived and I was unpacking, I was able to just dump the bag back into the drawer and reuse the bag.

Edit: Looked it up, Big one...Little one

These are the exact two that I use. On the larger one, I use the big drawers on the side for two different things. The left side houses my black, white, and red beads since those are the ones that I always have the most of. The right side houses a drawer for "unopened packs" a "to be sorted" drawer, where I dump either mix packs or messed up projects so I can sort the beads out later, and the bottom drawer holds my it has a few pairs of tweezers, some masking tape, and some tiny paint bowls that I used to use for beads when I had them separated a different way. I've been doing Perler for a couple of years now and this has by far to me been the most useful and least expensive way to house my beads. :)

Your local hardware store has toolboxes that commander decks fit nicely in. Haven't tried them with 60 card decks but I've seen quite a few put commander decks in them. Something like this or this.

u/chrsjxn · 2 pointsr/warhammerconquest

I keep my LCGs in these:

The bins are basically card sized in multiple dimensions. If you use tall sleeves, you have to slide the cards in aligned with the long edges. Otherwise they fit standing up aligned with the short edges.

And they lock and seal so you have a sturdy, mostly waterproof, case with a nice handle. (And they click together, too, if you ever need more than one for a game.)

u/SunTsu75 · 2 pointsr/lockpicking

u/aliasfpv · 2 pointsr/arduino

You could get a latching parts case like this and store all your parts inside to isolate them from the rest of the drawer.

If its already dirty, just spray it with some compressed air. If its really dirty you could try carefully wiping it with small amounts of isopropyl alcohol (don't have it plugged in while you do this).

u/grim259 · 2 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

I have one of these plus an extra tray section attached. I will probably by another for the next wave only because I am running out of room for medium ships.

Squadrons fit standing up in the smaller box, and small ships all fit in one of the smaller boxes.

All larger ships are in the top with one small plano case for tokens along with the range rulers and movement tools.

All dice, damage, speed dials, and command dials fit perfectly in the little compartments on the top of the main box.

All upgrades, ship, and squadron cards are in pages in a 3 ring binder. I use standard magic or trading card sleeves for large size admiral cards and squadrons. Upgrade use these and ships and titles use these

I dont line the boxes with anything, stuff doesnt rattle around enough for me to worry about it breaking with me just carrying it from car to store.

I currently own two of everything except the interdictor and liberty and it all fits in the main box and two attachments.

u/wordofgreen · 2 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

I bought this tool box from Amazon based on the recommendation from this Cannot Get your Ship out blog post.

I have since bought a second connector for the bottom and will probably get one more. One holds all my squads fully assembled, one holds a bunch of small ships fully assembled, and everything else goes in the partitioned bin in the middle. The compartments on top are great--one hold shield/command dials and one is great small oddities. I store my laser pointer and miscellaneous tokens in there/it holds dice well too if you're not using a dice bag.

I honestly can't possibly recommend it enough!

u/JonSzanto · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

From your link to the Amazon page: last year, Costco sold these for the low cost of $50.00, which was a steal. I've outfitted that with trays in the drawers, but it was a bit of extra work, and is probably a bit big to set on your desk!

However, if you are looking into desktop storage and want no more than 36 pens displayed, some visible, this is quite reasonable build quality (i.e. looks nice and is solidly made) for a pretty low price. Sometimes offered on sale at that site, and it sells for more at other places. The bonus is that it is already made for the pens with padded trays.

Alternatively, if you're keeping all your tools and parts at home try a simple wood tool chest. They look much nicer than a tackle-box or a tool-box and do a better job of organizing, in my opinion.

Machinist toolbox. Harbor freight has a similar design, you can find it on Amazon and other online retailers.
EDIT: The specific model I have is made by Trinity, be warned its made of laminated MDF, it scuffs easily and if you aren't careful, you may strip some screws, and there's no telling if it will survive shipping.
You might have better luck checking in your local harbor freight for a similar one

u/ltlgrmln · 2 pointsr/electronics

A combination of this and this.

I love the Stanley boxes, because if you've got multiple you can mix the trays around in addition to being able to take them out to keep it organized on the table top. The smallest removable boxes in those fit resistors with the reel tape on them still, so I consider them perfect size. The container store ones are just deep enough to fit a concrete power resistor. You could also mount a ton of them on the wall if you've got the room or a bigger workspace.

u/msolace · 2 pointsr/ModernMagic
there is a larger version too its only 2 more dollars i think Also, wine opener boxes the nice ones, you can find at resale shops without the opener sometimes. And I use a towel for my playmat can wipe up spills, keep your cards unscuffed its great :) Don't be a yes man, be unique, the tacklebox guy at your shop! For the individual decks, I use the magic inserts and the prerelease boxes, you can give them some spirit, like arts and crafts.

u/Splice1138 · 2 pointsr/LegoStorage

Seems like it would work OK for storage, but in actual use it would take up a lot of space, especially if you have a decent number of bricks that necessitate multiple cases.

If you want something more portable than the typical drawers, you might be better off with something like this.

Stanley 25-removable compartment organizer. For the price of 1x foam Feldherr bag, I can buy 5 or 6 of these (they go on sale from time to time for $10-$11) and store damn near my entire fleet to include tokens, base, pegs, etc. Big ships and Epic ships may need a deeper Stanley case, the price of which is still comparable with the 25-compartment.

I found foam to be largely unnecessary, unless you plan on throwing your collection down a flight of stairs. I've moved a couple of times and my ships survived undamaged using the Stanley cases.

u/petecas · 2 pointsr/lego and amazing. Drawers/bins that are removable and rearrangeable make it easier to sort out what you want for the current MOC.

When/if you fill up a bin, you can either subdivide further or move some of the Lego to deep storage.

I'm pretty dead set against sorting by color, it's WAY easier to find a red 1x2 in a bin of 1x2s than it is to find it in a bin of red.

u/VoteTedJameson · 2 pointsr/SWlegion

There are some purpose-made storage trays like this: , but they're expensive.
I put my AT-ST in a $1 storage bin from target with some foam cut from an acoustic panel in the bottom to cushion it, and it works fine. I use a tool box for my X-wing and Armada minis and I'm thinking I'll get one for my Legion troopers as well. You can get them at Home Depot or Lowe's for cheap, they're tough and they're always available.

u/Route66_LANparty · 2 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

Play the basic starter game from the box a few times... If you and your friends dig it, then consider some accessories and extra ships. (Sticking to the accessories here, I'll let others give tips on the ships, since now just buy 2 of everything).

  • Extra Dice. 1-2 sets of extra dice. - FFG has a bad habit of not providing enough dice. One extra set gives you enough dice to roll for almost any attack. 2 sets of extra dice allow you to keep separate dice pools for each player to move things along quickly. $5-$10 per set.

  • Playmat. You could get 2x of the official FFG 3' x 3' mats. Or a large 3rd party 6' x 3' mat. Alternatively, people get a large piece of black felt for very cheap. Or even a large Yoga Mat.

  • Card Sleeves for protection with frequent play. - Mayday's Armada Kit or Official FFG (See the bottom of the Armada box to know which ones to buy)

  • Storage - I use a couple of these 25 and 10 bin storage compartments, along with binders for the cards.
u/Lokotor · 2 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

The Stanley 25 compartment small parts organizer fits the Bestiary boxes almost perfectly so I recommend those. The Amazon
version may also work as it looks like it is identical but I haven't tried it.

u/cupster3006 · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I use the same Stanley organizer for my carboard cutouts. It's the best one

u/sir_moleo · 2 pointsr/DarkSoulsTheBoardGame

I use these for all the cards and other bits. The containers are also removable so you can use them as trays while playing. The large and medium size trays fit the sleeved cards perfectly. And the small ones are perfect for tokens/counters/etc.

Stanley 014725 25-Removable Compartment Professional Organizer

The minis pose more of a problem though, and as I won't be travelling with them, my solution is a big curio to keep them all displayed in.

u/crimsonedge7 · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

I use the Stanley 014710H and 014725M boxes, depending on the size of the ship. It's a bit pricier than the individual Plano boxes you can find, but it's sturdy and I haven't found a ship that doesn't fit in one of the two sizes. The compartments are removable and you can mix-and-match them, so they're pretty versatile. They stack nicely, as well.


Some example pics here. Dials and base tokens are stored with the ships unless they don't fit in the same compartment. When that happens they are still in the same box, just a "general" compartment. I even stored the cards in them until all my 2.0 conversions meant I had way too many cards to easily find that way and I switched to binders.


EDIT: For some extra clarification, I have one of each 1.0 ship (plus a second IG-2000 and the Aces packs, etc.) plus Lando's Falcon and a 2.0 core. All of that converted over to 2.0 with the kits fits in 5 of the thinner 25-compartment cases and 2 of the larger 10-compartment ones. Obviously the amount you need will depend on how many ships you have and whether you feel the need to separate them by faction like I do, but it's not a bad storage solution, if I say so myself.

u/Super206 · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

I keep the models in a cardboard box with pluck-foam inserts, but for everything else I use one of these that was recommended by other folks for X-Wing, here it is in use. The compartment boxes have little feet that slot into divots on the case's base so with the lid closed they're effectively locked in position. There are other types with different compartments and depths as well, you can find them just as easily at any hardware store.

Now all I have to worry about is the pile of baggies that make it look like I'm cutting drugs to make rent.

u/ChipChester · 2 pointsr/livesound

Stanley has a few different versions of these totes:

that are 16.5"+/- wide, 13+ deep. Two available depths. The cups inside stay put if one of their neighbors is missing, and stuff doesn't spill out (surface-mount resistors are a possible exception.)

I think they would fit snugly in a thin-foam-lined rack drawer like this one:

Deeper drawers likely available too.
Putting rackmount slides directly on the case itself might be fruitful, too.

Pillboxes like this: could handle the really tiny stuff, like those surface mount components and MacBook Pro bottom panel screws. Can't beat that vendor's price for a single unit, too...

Look also at fishing tackle boxes, model railroad parts organizers, etc.

(No association with any of the links...)

u/alexisew · 2 pointsr/lego

In case you ever expand your collection and need more boxes: the Stanley small-parts organizers are just about the best thing ever for storing Lego-- they have removable compartments, so you can pull out a bin, look through it, dump it out, whatever. There's a shallow version with small to medium size compartments and a deep version with big compartments, all of them stack together (nice for storage), and the compartments are isolated enough to keep everything separated if the box gets flipped upside down while closed even with the smallest of pieces.

u/keltorak · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

I use the Stanley organizers for my collection.

The big bases stack easily in the big bins, I'm just getting to the point where I can't fit them all in in 2 bins.

The small bases fit vertically in the small or medium bins. I made separators with the ship name as a label (color-coded for faction) to keep them separate. It's not perfect when you're looking for a specific pilot, but it works nicely.

The dials I haven't found a good solution yet. Now that I'm fully whored up on those deceivingly fun to paint dial covers, I popped out all the dials and I just stack them in the big bins. They're too big to stand up, so it's a real pain. I need to figure something else out.

If only my son and I weren't such fans of always trying new things, the 18 dial covers we now have would mean we could just put the rest of the dials in long term storage with no care as to how hard it is to find what you want!

u/saerax · 2 pointsr/legodnd

I haven't used full set pieces yet, just a few minor accents. I settled on LEGO figures when I started DM'ing as I had a pretty good existing collection, and supplemented it with some ebay purchases - I actually ended up buying a few sets of knock-off LEGO minifigs from China, which ended up being about $8-$10 per set of 8; quite a bit cheaper than molded figures or authentic LEGO. It let me fill in a lot of gaps pretty quickly on being able to represent various creatures/NPCs. I use some compartment organizers to hold everything, works pretty well.

For your games, it looks like you build most of the world with LEGO - do you play exclusively on fixed sets? How do you handle movement?

u/Nerdfacehead · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

I bought this case from Amazon and I'm going to get some foam like you have to line in. Fairly cheap and really good for carrying stuff.

Stanley 014725 25-Removable Compartment Professional Organizer

u/chronsbons · 2 pointsr/Tools

TASTAK's seem like they could be fine, especially since your drill/driver only has a soft case to go with it. Tastak may well be a better solution than that.

As far as other tools though, the TASTAK's seem optimized to hold a large power tool well in the lower compartment and then fasteners and hardware in the top sorting bins. This part is what i would call less than ideal. Plenty of people like these stanley cases for organization of small parts. but having that integrated into the top of the box... i am not sure how i would want to use that.

If i had to pick from the TASTAK line the two storage things that look the most appealing to me are the Deep Box and the Drawers

the bottom like is that anything you pick up is going to need some custom organization solutions. I just got the 13" Milwaukee box and am looking at building some custom organizers today out of 1/2" acrylic and wood for the prototype and later 3D printed ABS. i don't think there is a perfect solution for everyone because everyone has different tools in their box.

u/SkywalterDBZ · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

Cases. They're Stanley tool cases and are perfect for all but the big ships, as you can see

Here's a random link to the first google result so you can see the part number and if they're available cheaply where you are.

u/krezmasters · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

Since I have prime, I got this off amazon.

Looks to be the same thing, just made by Stanley.

u/mrbiggbrain · 2 pointsr/DnD

Both the links /u/ZoraSage and /u/OneCritWonder posted are excellent options. Very expensive, but worth it.

For something much cheaper try this organizer meant for small items. I got it for some 3.5e stuff and by removing a bunch of the little cups it fits a DnD book, pens, a notepad, tons of dice, and Pathfinder Pawns. Not pretty, but super functional.

u/happygocrazee · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

I literally carried a handful of b-wings into the store in the front pocket of a hoodie after having them in my car's cupholder all day.

Then I bought some Stanley's.

u/PFS_Character · 2 pointsr/Pathfinder

I use a couple Stanley organizers (, alphabetized. I keep the bases jumbled up in the original box, and only store the bases that I've painted in the toolboxes (painted bases help me track enemies of the same type, so I don't have a need for tons of bases).

Note that there is a large discrepancy in the numbers of enemies by letter (for example, demons, devils, and dragons all start with "D"), so you will probably have to spread letters across compartments, make sub-categories by letter, and/or put more than one letter in a compartment to save space (for example, "x" and "y" can be easily put together).

I only have a couple bestiaries worth of pawns; you might want something different if you have much more than that. Of course, nothing is stopping you from simply getting a lot of toolboxes like this guy did:

u/Tovath · 2 pointsr/sysadmin

I currently use this Custom Leathercraft, right now I do general on site Tech, but it works great for me. Larger items fit easily in the center.

u/used2bgood · 2 pointsr/random_acts_of_lego

I have over 500 sets, so my storage gets a little pricey, but I used a combination of five things:

  • Akro parts bins for food items, minifig parts, and other small, uncommon pieces.

  • Plano tackle boxes for smaller pieces like 1x3 or 1x2 bricks, that I have in medium quantity, but in all different colors (I sort by color first, then piece type/size)

  • Stack-on boxes because they're large, stackable, dividable, and CHEAP.

    and lastly,

  • Ikea SAMLA bins for bigger bricks (2x8's and such), plates, odd pieces, and wheels. They're clear, stackable, and come with lids.

    Also crucial to my organization is a label maker, and they have good cheap ones at Costco. You could always just print out pictures of the bricks or a box inventory and use packing tape to seal it on, but I like the label maker look.

    My Lego room looks something like this, although nowhere near as many bricks.

    My nephew, who only has about 30 sets, uses small Tupperware type containers to sort the pieces, and keeps them in drawers like this, with a plywood table top bolted through the tops of each cabinet so that he can build and move the table around (although his is four cabinets bolted in a square).

    We also found some cool ideas here, but went with something else that worked better for our house/lifestyle. :)

u/rachelboory · 2 pointsr/beadsprites

I think boards are a safe bet!

What does he usually do with his pieces? Does he hang them, make them into magnets or pins?

Do you know where he gets his beads? A gift card to Joann or Michaels would be an awesome idea, because he could get his own beads with that.

If he doesn't have anywhere to store them right now, maybe a drawer set like this one is a good idea!

u/Im_clean · 2 pointsr/AFOL

I currently use two of these. I use them for all my smaller bricks. Some of each plate, specialty stuff like hinges and decorating pieces. I use shoebox size rubbermades for the rest of the actually blocks, bigger plates, windscreens, plants, etc... They aren't super huge and are stackable on top of each other. I looked at tackle boxes but liked the viewable drawers and the expandability. The drawers are also dividable into two separate areas so 64 drawers becomes 128. Lots of room for a decent size collection.

u/IVIuggle · 2 pointsr/lego

If you've only got two tubs, I'd suggest maybe sorting them by color in these drawers. They're a bit expensive on amazon, you might be able to find them cheaper at your local Walmart. These types are good for organizing into individual parts, but might be a bit overkill for a smaller collection.

u/FurMich · 2 pointsr/lockpicking

I have about the same setup:

I like it. I haven't had any issues with pieces migrating slots (except that time I dropped everything...) but I agree with /u/trevmurf about the foam on the lid, that would fix it, alternatively you could cut your own dividers, but that's a bit of a hassle.

One thing I've thought about (when I have a dedicated workspace) is something like this:

u/beernoulli · 2 pointsr/woodworking

I like these a lot. I have a few on my workbench. My organization system ranges from a drawer with a specific size but that I bought a box of, to a drawer full of randomly sized nails that I pulled out of old junk. If you have a lot of one type if thing, they have versions with larger drawers too.

It's still old man level hoarding, but it's more old man engineer level hoarding.

Akro-Mils 10164 64 Drawer Plastic Parts Storage Hardware and Craft Cabinet

u/Kiosade · 2 pointsr/beadsprites

For organization I originally started with one of those uhh... craft carrying case things. It’s plastic and has a bunch of dividers that make up little boxes inside. But that became a hassle when I got too many colors, so I got a couple of those parts organizers (similar to this —> It’s WAY better, because you can take out the drawers you need to your table or whatever instead of ALL your colors. Makes grabbing the beads easier too.

As for sorting, I think you have the right idea. Take out the easiest, most distinguished colors first, then end up with the tan/pink/orange colors that are harder to tell apart. Takes a while but there’s really no better way. I suggest pouring say a few handfuls into a big wide soup bowl at a time and sort that, then rinse and repeat.

u/MrMontgomery · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I got a drawer cabinet thingy to keep all my bits and pieces in, it's the UK version of this

u/LThanda · 2 pointsr/beadsprites

And the containers are part of the Arko Mils storage cabinet. I have 2 of the 64 drawer. Each drawer holds about 1000 beads.

That said, if you don't want to spend the money on it, there's a really clever solution with using empty water bottles for each color. Makes it easier to pour out and you don't have to worry about them spilling (just put the cap on it!)

u/NovaWildstar · 2 pointsr/Etsy

I have moved into a larger house - we specifically hunted for a house that had studio space because my company was spilling out of the office into the guest room, family room, kitchen etc. 1.5 years later - we are looking to move again - this time with a full walk out daylight basement for my studio.

I recommend using as much vertical space as possible. I have put up shelves and cut up cardboard boxes to create dividers so I can cram them full of envelopes. Clear tubs with snapping lids that stack Labels, etc. My husband has built custom risers for the printers to store paper underneath. Pegboard, 100s of tiny drawers. Anything and everything really.

It's awesome to see your business grow and how much stuff you need just to stay organized.

u/WiredEarp · 2 pointsr/arduino

I was planning on 3d printing a set of small component drawers, but I just saw these and they seem pretty reasonably priced:

u/DefaultGen · 2 pointsr/pinball

I use Harbor Freight's rolling bin rack. I put my tools on top and big parts and stuff on bottom. Small parts in these Akro-Mils bins. You outgrow individual tool boxes quickly.

u/stregabello · 2 pointsr/CrossStitch

I believe it's an organizer generally used for organizing hardware (nuts, bolts, screws, etc). Like this: Hardware Storage

u/Lookatmypinkpony · 2 pointsr/beadsprites
u/kowalski71 · 2 pointsr/arduino

I think the big question when it comes to component organization is portable or not? If portable there are some good (and cheap!) options like card binders and tackle boxes, which other people have suggested.

I'm currently getting my bench set up where I'll be doing most of my electronics and I'm finding it a bit trickier to do without spending a bunch. I'll probably get drawer organizers with as many drawers as possible for components like resistors, caps, and inductors.

I think first-order retrievability is a worthy consideration when it comes to tools, including dev boards. At work I have plastic bins in all kinds of sizes and those work well. They offer good compartmentalization and organization but because they're open and have the shorter front they're easy to look into and access, or move to a bench, etc.

u/rabbiabe · 2 pointsr/diypedals

I’m also new to the game and I’ve found tayda to be a much more accessible site than Mouser — I get overwhelmed by the apparently galactic selection and can’t figure out what to get.

Also u/preppyprepface had really important advice— don’t skimp on your stock. I had to go back to tayda almost immediately and order a bunch more stuff because I initially ordered exactly what I needed for a specific PCB and then got really excited about other potential projects, and the shipping takes a while (weirdly, at a certain point if you order enough it comes DHL from Thailand which for some reason is faster than however they ship from Colorado. Who understands these things?). The most important thing to remember is that things will get screwed up — last week I ruined a 3PDT and shorted an LED and it was great to just reach into the bin for another one and keep chugging. Resistors in particular are so cheap that you can’t even buy less than 10 at a time (10 resistors = $0.12 so it makes sense)

You’ll also want a way to keep things organized — I bought this and this and these. In retrospect I wish I had bought two of the first one, but they’re all useful. Some of the bin walls are removable so you can make different size spaces for different kinds of parts. I then used regular sticky labels (Avery 5160) to label the outside so I could see what went where — for the smaller parts like resistors and capacitors I grouped them, so all the x10kΩ resistors went in one bin (in their little ziploc bags), all the x100kΩ in another bin, etc. it still requires some fishing through (vs buying a big table top organizer) but I live in a small house :)

u/DialgoPrima · 2 pointsr/beadsprites

Simple design, doesn't stick out too much- the Akro-Mils 64 compartment organizer. This is what I personally use, and I love the heck out of it. The drawers come out easily so you don't have to worry about reaching up for whatever colors you need, you can just grab the trays and go. For bead count- each drawer holds approx. 1250-1500 beads. If you don't fill it up past there, you should also be able to subvert the spillage through shaking crisis. I should also mention the drawers can stack if needed. They don't seal, but they are held in fairly securely. By "tub of nightmares", I'm assuming you mean the 11,000 tub? I got roughly 30 colors from it, with colors varying in quantity. Black, white, yellow, blue, red, green come in numbers. Some of the other colors, like the light greens, browns, and pastels are rarer. If your wife is serious about the hobby, she will be wanting to get the 1000 pc bags.

u/sakodak · 2 pointsr/arduino

I went from almost zero knowledge (blinking light tutorials, etc) to this in about a month. I'm nowhere near an expert now, but I designed and built something with my own brain and two hands and learned quite a bit in the process.

For me it helps to have something "real" to do. Something I actually need (or want,) then I can just plow through the bullshit and make that thing work. I still really have no clue what I'm doing (as evidenced by this) but now I have a shed with light and sound effects.

As for components, you can get stuff from mouser, jameco or lots of places, but I think the best bang for your buck when you're getting started is to just order assortments of stuff. I got assortments of caps and resistors from amazon and I'm sure similar assortments are available for other components (as I'm typing this I searched for "electronic component assortment" on amazon and there are several kits that have lots of stuff, plus diodes, voltage regulators, some ICs, transistors, LEDs, knobs, buttons, etc.)

The way I see it is if you're looking at a parts list for a beginner project they're probably going to use common components. A tiny leap of logic leads to the assumption that you're going to need those parts in the future. If the project calls for a 2n3906 transistor you can either buy one for $5.00 or 50 for $7.

Another piece of advice if you go this route: buy some of these. (May want to think about one of these too.)

Foam trays. It's a relatively expensive option, but it's the best option. If money is not a serious issue, I'd check out the company Battle Foam for foam trays and bags. I wargame, so I have one of their larger bags -- the PACK 720 -- which holds an entire 2000 point Warhammer army, but is way more than a GM needs.

I think the Pathfinder Bag is probably overkill, but it's extremely nice with space for tons of books, minis, dice, pens, tokens and other useful toys and tools (also appears to be on sale and nearly half-price right now).

If your collection grows large enough that it no longer fits in the bag, you can buy additional trays and cardboard storage boxes to hold excess trays.

That's pretty much what I do. I store one army in my PACK 720, and store my other armies in stacker boxes (though I use the large boxes and trays), and then when I'm heading to a game I put the army I plan to play with in the bag, and leave everything else at home.

In addition to my warhammer armies, I also have a large box that is nothing but gaming miniatures -- mostly stuff from Reaper. I bought a bunch of custom sized trays from Battle Foam that are the size of most gaming books (8.5" x 11", 1.5" thick) and a large document box (17" x 11" x 12") to hold them.

When I'm leaving to run a session, I take one 8.5" x 11" tray with me, with just the miniatures I need for that session. I usually stick the tray inside the box from a boxed set -- typically I use the box from my copy of Elminister's Ecologies, since it's about 2" tall.

Of course, all of this assumes your miniatures are painted. If they aren't painted, then a tacklebox should be fine. Plano makes a lot of great cheap boxes with modular shelves, like this one that will hold a ton of miniatures, so long as you don't care about them getting banged around.

u/Lord_Seacow · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

Alternatively, this box is only $20 and has more than enough storage for almost any number of ships. The top will store anything that isn't a Tantive or Raider. Probably not as big as the one linked, but it is less than half the price.

Stanley 10 Removable Bin Compartment Deep Professional Organizer

I got that in the mail yesterday, it's great. Feels very durable and well put together. The compartments are all removable and rearrangeable. I use it for my diy juice concentrates and it has no problem holding 30ml bottles, probably even 50ml bottles standing up. I can get a picture of mine with all the juice bottles inside when I get home in a few hours if anyone is interested.

u/toxiczombiex · 2 pointsr/EDH

I personally use the Stanley organizer. Perfect fit for up to 8 commander decks, and two larger spaces for anything you need. All the compartments are rearrangeable and no cards fall through because the lid seals tightly.

I suppose you could make it fit 7 commanders, and remove the 2 big compartments and 1 small one, and it might be able to fit a playmat. But i just carry the case+my backpack with my trade binder and playmat.

Best of all its super cheap, and super sturdy.

u/2ByteTheDecker · 2 pointsr/EDH

you want the stanley toolbox.

the small compartments hold an double sleeved edh deck with the commander in a toploader. the large compartments are perfect for dice/counters/tokens/draft sleeves w/e.

I can tell all the decks apart based on the sleeve color.

u/Null_Finger · 2 pointsr/Netrunner

What to store things in

I use binders for commonly used cards and cardboard boxes for "bulk" cards (The cards you don't think you will use very often): 5000 capacity box, 800 capacity box

I also hear that these Stanley Organizers are also incredible for storage, as each compartment is the perfect size for a sleeved MTG commander deck (100 cards).

The binder should definitely be sorted. Not only is it more organized that way, you can find the cards you need much faster. The box can be unsorted, though I like to at least keep cards belonging to the same faction together.

This does run into the problem of occasionally not knowing whether a card is in the binder or box, but it has the advantage of giving you quicker access to the cards you most commonly use. I mostly do this because of habits from MTG, where you get tons of useless cards, but Netrunner doesn't give you nearly as many useless cards, so you could make the argument for storing all your cards together instead of differentiating between commonly used cards and bulk.

How to sort cards quickly

Your cards can be in whatever order you want: completely alphabetical, by faction and then by type and then alphabetical, by set, whatever. Your personal preference.

However, when it comes to sorting cards, or anything in general, there are fast ways to sort and slow ways to sort. Anyone who has studied computer science can attest to this. The difference is small when you only have a few cards, but quickly becomes massive as the number of cards grows.

Here are the two sorting algorithms you should know if you want to sort your cards quickly: Quicksort and Merge sort. They are among the fastest algorithms out there, they're easy to understand, and they're practical for sorting cards by hand. I'll explain them in the context of sorting cards below.


Here's how quicksort works for computers: Choose a "pivot" item at random from the unsorted pile. Now, go through everything and divide it into two piles: Those that would come before the pivot, and those that would come after the pivot. Then, sort each pile individually (usually with yet another quicksort). Once the piles are sorted, just combine them and put the pivot in between them, and voila, the pile as a whole is in order.

However, if you're a human, you'll find it more efficient to sort based on certain characteristics of the card that you can quickly identify (such as the card's faction) instead of whether or not the card comes before or after a randomly chosen pivot. In addition, you'll want to separate into multiple piles instead of just 2.

Here's an example: You want your cards sorted by faction and then in alphabetical order. You already sorted you cards by faction, and now, you want to sort your Anarch cards in alphabetical order. The cards you want to sort are in the following order: Wyldside, Demolition run, Deja Vu, Grimoire, Corroder, Medium, Yog.0, Stimhack, Parasite. The first step of quicksort is to divide the cards into piles. When sorting alphabetically, I like to make a pile for cards from A-E, one for F-M, one for N-R, and one last one for S-Z. However, as long as every card in one pile comes before every card in the next pile, it doesn't matter how you make your piles. So, dividing these unsorted cards into piles (according to my preferred sorting scheme), we get the following piles:

{Demolition run, Deja Vu, Corroder}, {Grimoire, Medium}, {Parasite}, {Wyldside, Stimhack, Yog.0}

Each individual pile is not in order, so we sort each pile individually (I would use another quicksort on these piles if they were bigger) to get:

{Corroder, Deja Vu, Demolition run}, {Grimoire, Medium}, {Parasite}, {Stimhack, Wyldside, Yog.0}

Then, we just combine the piles and we're good.

Merge sort

Here's how merge sort works for computers: Divide your big pile into 2 separate piles, and then sort those piles individually (Usually with another merge sort). Then, once the 2 piles are sorted, merge the piles into one sorted pile. The merging process is made much easier by the fact that the two piles are already sorted individually.

Here's how the merging process works: Look at the top item of both piles. Whichever one comes first gets added to the bottom of a new combined pile. Repeat until both piles are empty, and voila, your combined pile is sorted in order.

Example: You have the following sorted piles: {Demolition run, Yog.0, Wyldside}, {Corroder, Parasite}. The first elements of our 2 piles are Demolition run and Corroder. Corroder comes first, it becomes our new combined pile. Now, the top item of our 2 piles are Demolition Run and Parasite. Demolition run comes before Parasite, so it gets put at the bottom of our combined pile. The top cards of the piles are: Yog.0, Parasite. Parasite is put at the bottom of the combined pile. The second pile is now empty, so just put the rest of the first pile at the bottom of the combined pile. The combined pile looks like this: {Corroder, Demolition run, Parasite, Yog.0, Wyldside}. It's sorted, yay!

If you're a human, you'll be doing mostly the same thing as the computer. However, instead of having to lift up the combined pile to put a card at the bottom of it, you can instead make the entire combined pile face-down and add cards to the top. When you're done merging, just flip the combined pile upside-down.

Which one?

From experience, quicksort is a lot better if you have an unorganized mess to sort.

However, if you're adding some brand new cards to an already sorted collection, you'll want to use mergesort instead, since your collection is already sorted. Simply sort the new cards, and then merge the pile of new cards and your already sorted collection.

How NOT to sort your cards

Perhaps you currently sort your cards like this: Pull a card out of the unsorted pile, find out where it goes in your pile of sorted cards, then put it there. Repeat until unsorted pile is empty.

Or, maybe you do this: Go through the unsorted pile, find the item in the pile that goes below every other item in the unsorted pile, put that item at the bottom of the sorted pile. Repeat until unsorted pile is empty.

If they feel slow, that's because they are. They're mathematically inferior to quicksort and merge sort. The first method is actually OK if you want to just put back a card you took out of your collection, but if you have more than a few cards to add to your collection, merge sort instead.

Some adjustable hardware storage boxes can hold decks etc. i.e. This Stanley 10 Removable Bin Compartment Deep Professional Organizer obviously this one is too small but you get the idea. I saw some guy have like 10+ commander decks in something like this

u/half_a_sandwich · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

I use one of these:

It has 2 large compartments and 8 small ones.

The small compartments hold an ultra pro deckbox (80) with just a bit of extra room (so that they may hold a larger deckbox, I just haven't tried it). They also hold a sleeved commander deck pretty perfectly.

The large compartments either perfectly fit three Ultrapro 80 deckboxes, or perfectly fits one Ultraguard 100 flip'n'tray (which was pretty cool when I discovered it).

I usually devote 1 compartment to dice and tokens.

It's not going to fit the mat (theoretically you could remove a row of bins from inside to fit it, but the rest would rattle around then). But requiring the mat fit into the same case is really going to limit your options. You could add some velcro loops to the outside to hold it, or just put both the box and the mat together in a bag.

I bought this one last week:

Plano Molding 1363 Stow N Go Toolbox, Graphite Gray and Sandstone

I'm really happy with it. My vice and picks fit in the top and the bottom drawers have great storage for locks, plug followers, my pinning tray and pins.

u/z2amiller · 2 pointsr/diyelectronics

I have one of these Plano boxes and I really like it. There's a large area on top that fits tools (wire strippers, crimpers, tweezers, desoldering supplies, etc), and then three drawers. The two bottom drawers are double-depth, so they fit prototyping supplies like jumper wires, breadboards, etc very well.

I've since outgrown that box but bought a four-pack of these Plano 3700 boxes. Apparently that is a pretty standard size and other companies make holders and stuff for them if you end up with a ton of them.

For smaller components (SMD) these tiny little boxes are great. One of those boxes holds a whole reel of 5,000 0603-sized resistors. Some people also use small paper envelopes to hold their components.

u/Doctorworm321 · 2 pointsr/beadsprites

I think alphabetical works well until you have 3+ different shades of each color and you're deciding which one to use. I've been using a slightly bigger one of these: that I found at Joanns for much cheaper, the large bins on the side are for common colors that get used more and can be split in half if needed, and then my girlfriend ROYGBIV'd the smaller drawers. This has worked out awesomely for us, but the downside is its not very portable, when closed nothing is sealed so you just have to be careful. Moving around the house is easy, but if we wanted to go to a friends, I dont think it would make it.

You will never have enough storage :-). I use wall mounted bins like this for common parts, storage boxes like this for resistors, caps, etc., and a variety of other things like losthiker posted for LEDs and other small parts. I have some big drawers (made out of wood wine cases I pick up at wine stores) for mid-sized things, too.

u/fotbr · 2 pointsr/woodworking

I have two of these I use for my in-shop "hardware store", as well as one with smaller drawers for everything else. The bigger drawers are my unit of measurement here.

I standardized on 1/4-20 hardware for all my jigs and fixtures in my shop. I've got a drawer each of hex-head bolts in 1/2" increments from 1/2" up to 4" long. If I need something longer than that, it won't be a last-minute thing. A drawer each of nuts, normal washers, fender washers, split "lock" washers, and wing-nuts. Another drawer contains some "star" or "t" handles.

Same for woodscrews, I try to keep a drawer's worth of #6, #8, and #10 in 1", 1.25", 1.5" and 2" on hand. Specialty screws go in smaller drawers.

When I decided to build up my hardware store, I just picked stuff up a box or two at a time, rather than going out and buying it all at once.

u/skwolf522 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I have a tool bag for in the house. I keep all the usual items. I can take a picture of it for ya when I get home.



Out in the garage the other post got it right with the Harbor Freight tool Chests. You can't go wrong with them. They will hold up and last you forever.


You want to keep stuff off the floor so I would recommend these

they are 2 Feet deep so can hold a lot.

If you buy two you can actually fill up a whole wall.


I like these as parts organizers in my garage, Milwaukee makes good ones also. You don't want to go cheap on these, it is a bad day when you go to carry it somewhere and the latch breaks and spills out 1000 screws



I use one like this in the house to hold small parts




Now for stuff I feel will change your life.


If you do any electrical work, or for changing face plates. This screwdriver will change your life.

I saw a electrician using it and I had to go buy one.


I always have multiple sizes of these in the garage. They work great for hanging or fixing anything.


I just order Star bits instead of buying a bit set with a bunch a bits I don't use.


If you have a sawzall and some trees you need to trim these will saw through a 4 inch branch like it is butter.


These are great stud finders. They find the drywall screws that go in to the studs.

I installed 3 of these in my garage and the light output is amazing.


can't think of anything else right now.

u/Dreadnot9 · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

I use this Stanley organizer:

In it I've got:

  • All my pilot and reference cards (except duplicates)
  • All my upgrade cards
  • Two damage decks
  • All focus, evade, stress, ion and other tokens
  • 9 of each kind of dice
  • My large ship bases

    It could easily store things like bases and dials, I just simply keep those in my foam.

    It works really well, the large compartments are perfectly sized for pilot cards, and the medium ones are great for upgrade cards. The smallest ones are good for holding tokens and dice. I'd highly recommend it, and the great part is it's relatively inexpensive and you can always just pick up a second when/if your collection grows!
u/mohuju · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

Once you start buying... Anything else, I would pick up 1 or 2 of these bad boys.

I'm not a pro xwing player, but the storage is so danged convenient. In some ways, it enables me even more because there are bins that "need to be filled."

Happy to hear of another new player!

u/kniq86 · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

I already have my boxes (these ones $11 from Amazon) or I'd give the ones from the OP a try. Five bucks is hard to pass up and I feel these minis are a bit fragile for me to want to transport with pegs inserted anyway.

u/papy72 · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

For storage I use a combination of stuff.

Ships, tokens, plastic bases, stands, etc are stored in Stanley Organizers, while the ship dials and pilot base plates are stored in 2x2 coin boxes. Lastly the pilot/upgrade cards are stored in standard 800 or 1000 count cardboard storage boxes.

u/Acherousia · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

I use these for the small ships, I just cut out the plastic clamshell the ships come in to act as a buffer and hold them in place in the compartments.

The 10 compartment version works well for the epic/large ships.

u/Rupnerd · 1 pointr/DnD

i would recomend a smaller one like this and then fizzle up some cotton (cheap from drugstores) in the compartments so the minis don't have space to fall around. You should have enough space at least for the minis of this session ;)

u/benbergman · 1 pointr/electronics

Not quite what you asked for, but I recently switched from those sets of drawers to these carrying cases with removable bins:

I also modeled up some replacement bins of non-standard sizes, if you have access to a 3D printer:

One great thing about these bins is that a standard size breadboard is exactly the same size as four of the smallest bins, so it is really easy to keep all the parts I need for a project together in one place.

u/Kelbesq · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

I use these Stanely 25 compartment cases:

To protect the ships a little more, I either line the compartments with craft foam, or use extra foam from pick and pluck. It manage to keep my ship pretty secure even while moving, or if I flip the case upside down. I really like the modularity, and the combo of a rigid shell + foam.

I also use the 10 compartment ones for larger ships (and eventually, Armada).

Edit: the 25 bin ones are much cheaper ordered via Home Depot. For some ships, I also re-use the original plastic and just trim it down to fit a compartment.

u/StormCrow_Merfolk · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

For my ships, I use Stanley organizer boxes, mostly for small and large ships and for epic ships and a few of the bigger large ones such as the Decimator.

u/Vilecat · 1 pointr/beadsprites

I have more or less the same thing, 4 organizers with movable compartments to hold all my beads minus black, white and red. Those 3 colors are in 2 giant Rubbermaid canisters (21 cups size) and a Tupperware container from when you buy sliced deli meat, respectively.

All the extra perler 1k count bags I have stored away as extra are in a storage box in my home office.

u/vikingcode1 · 1 pointr/woodworking

That first link is in Ireland - I'm honestly surprised Tactix is sold elsewhere, I thought it was a 'homebrand' type thing for Bunnings.

The second link I'd say isn't individual bins, in my searching around before settling on the Tactix containers, I found that if it has bins it says as much. That one advertises as dividers, which are just the removable walls rather than bins.

You could try this 25-bin Stanley organizer which is roughly the same price. I think Dewalt also have a bunch that'd be suitable.

u/hackedhead_ · 1 pointr/lego

Interesting. for reference, I have 15-20 thousand pieces, and I'm only now considering sorting to be worthwhile. I'm sorting my most common pieces by type (all colors of 1x2 plates in one compartment) and other types in mixed categories (all 1xN slopes in one compartment (1x2, 1x3, 1x4 all together). I'm using these (several of each):

But with under 5K parts, I'd recommend just sorting by size, as I mentioned before, maybe into something like this, with one drawer for each size:

Hope that helps!

u/ilovelegos · 1 pointr/lego

Yes Yes Yes. I just organized some bricks etc. into 4 of these.

Another tip. Don't use standard tackle boxes or parts boxes. Be sure to use organizers that have the compartments that are removable. I have spent a lot of time trying to find a specific color in a bin that I could not dump out. Something like this...

u/kemide · 1 pointr/msp

I have a small problem in that I like a lot of different kids of bags for various things. It's not just that either. I like a nice and well made leather messenger bag, too.

What really matters though is durability and utility. I've had a Spire Endo messenger bag that I've had for 8+ years and it still appears nearly new. I do take care of it but not much. My coworker has the same bag and the only part that's worn on his is the shoulder pad.

I've put massive weight into this thing and it holds it. It's fairly water resistant. No rips or tears. You can ride a bike with it (waist strap). It'll attach to a roller suitcase. It can hold a water bottle. You can zip things away into deep pockets that pick-pockets are unlikely to get into.

However, this is not a tool bag which is what I see a lot of people talking about. Still, I thought I'd mention it. Part of me wants a new bag but I can't justify spending more money when I have a perfectly nice and nearly new one still.

EDIT: I almost forgot, my toolbag of choice is this CLC bag with side zip open pockets. It's big though, which means heavy when loaded with tools. However, I also use a collapsable hand cart or 4 wheel dolly to get in and out of buildings when I have boxes of cable and other supplies.

I don't know if you need the amount of storage but I personally use this one from Amazon, which looks like this once it is all setup. The individual containers slide out from the base and you can swap in and out. The individual containers don't have tops so if you knock it over they will spill but if you put it on a table where you don't move it you don't have to worry about it all that much. Hope this helps and if you have any other questions feel free to pm me.

>I think the big question when it comes to component organization is portable or not? If portable there are some good (and cheap!) options like card binders and tackle boxes, which other people have suggested.

Portable is a big factor when considering how you will store stuff. I wouldn't dismiss it as an issue but I tend to see storage density as a bigger factor. It might not look that way when you are first starting out but as you collect more stuff space usage has to be managed.

>I'm currently getting my bench set up where I'll be doing most of my electronics and I'm finding it a bit trickier to do without spending a bunch. I'll probably get drawer organizers with as many drawers as possible for components like resistors, caps, and inductors.

Actually for resistors, diodes and LEDs I'd argue against that type of storage. The problem is this if you want to keep them organized you need individual bins per size or part number. If you don't things get mixed up and degrade from there. Even if you only stock the most common sizes of resistors you will end up with dozens of parts to organize. That leads to buying many drawer assemblies and using up a lot of space for a few parts. That doesn't mean you won't need the storage for other things though. Capacitors and inductors, especially in their more bulky variants would go well in such storage.

>I think first-order retrievability is a worthy consideration when it comes to tools, including dev boards.

if you don't need portability having tools directly accessible on the work bench can be a huge advantage. There is good reason woodworkers from the 1800's had huge walls of tools with the common tools right near their work benches.

The only thing that is different here is that makers often leave their benches for maker spaces or field work on their projects. That is when a portable tool box becomes so handy. These days though it doesn't even need to be a tool "box", it can just as well be a bag or even a tool backpack.

>At work I have plastic bins in all kinds of sizes and those work well. They offer good compartmentalization and organization but because they're open and have the shorter front they're easy to look into and access, or move to a bench, etc.

They are expensive though even at Wall Mart in the plastic variants. Plus you need a wall rack or shelving unit to store them. Stacking the plastic variants up one on top of the other is a pure trouble, believe me I've tried this with smaller units and it can lead to swearing and vulgarity when you want to take the bottom bin to the bench while avoiding spilling the rest. If you go with the cardboard ones or even the plastic ones you really need to build a shelving unit optimized for the size of the bins you buy. They are a good idea though, we have used the cardboard variants for stuff not used frequently at work.

That might be nice for the tools, although I have this Ikea cabinet thing that is working pretty well for that. I think I'm looking for something more like this but I'm afraid it's going to be total crap and I'll fill it up with beads and get irritated with it and have to empty it back out again.

Watch out for ziplock backs. They are not meant to store things for long periods of time. Notice how they get sticky over a few months.

Akro-Mills parts storage racks are what I use. I used duct tape to cover the clear fronts to keep light out, and labeled each one with what flavor is stored onside to keep it organized. I also used black poster board to cover the back as it is clear as well. They are stackable, so even when you collection of flavors grows excessive you'll be able to store them in a small amount of space i. e. I have almost 500 flavors stored in an area about 4 feet wide by 5.5 feet high and don't have to dig or reach for a flavored that is stored behind another flavor as you would in a rack.

I've been using a large tackle box with removal drawers/containers for my mobile DMing. This isn't the exact one I've been using (it's smaller than mine) but the design is the same:

It's really nice because the very top has sections for the 6 different types of dice. Books fit in the top compartment or the garage if you don't use all 4 drawers. Same goes for Tile set boxes. The containers in the garage also work really well for minis and administrative stuff like pencils, erasers, and such. I'm currently keeping my dice tower/tray, spell cards, and larger minis in the top container.

Make sure to check the dimensions, though. You'll need a larger one that will likely run $25 - $40.

It has made a world of difference- I use the same types of beads and charms to make my pieces for craft shows, so my drawers are labeled, but it's still pretty easy to see through the drawers, too. This is just for the stuff I deal with on a daily basis (I have crates in my closet for everything else). There are dividers you can put in the drawers for smaller things, so you can use the drawers for more than one item, but I haven't needed to do that yet. You can hang it on the wall, so it's up and out of the way, or it can stand on a table. I've found it to be pretty sturdy so far. It's on a table that's against the same wall as our front door, and it hasn't fallen over yet.

I use one of these at work.

Saves dipping into my toolbelt for smaller screws and rivets.

Massive timesaver

u/Jaccount · 1 pointr/magicTCG

Home Depot, Lowes or Amazon.

Its a Stanley removable bin storage box.
The one in the picture is the small one- it only has ten compartments.
I own the larger one, the FatMax XL, which has 14 compartments.

The REALLY nice thing about these boxes is that those containers are removable, swappable and safely/comfortably hold 100 double sleeved cards.

It's actually what I use for my cube because carrying around 720 cards plus 500 basic land plus all the tokens/emblems/etc can be a bit of a hassle.

But yeah, OP got a good deal.

u/xfeignx · 1 pointr/EDH

THIS. Stanley Organizer. This thing holds multiple double sleeved decks and I ended up using one of the leftover spaces to hold tokens and dice.

u/__Nidhogg__ · 1 pointr/Netrunner

Love the Ultimate Guard Twin Flip Tray with Xenoskin. The token holder in the deck box isn't really large enough for everything you need, but a set of dice for casual play fits well there. Tokens themselves are best kept (and organized) in a Plano-style plastic tray with good clasps. You don't want them coming undone in your bag.

I've seen a couple people use Stanley (or similar) brand organizers for carrying a large number of decks around, but you'd want to check the size of the compartments carefully before buying.

u/Awful_Antagonist · 1 pointr/EDH

I bought two of these. With some rearranging, one will hold six ultra pro boxes (inserted sideways), 7 Commander decks and one more compartment for tokens and dice. Having it just filled with single compartments will hold I think 12 Commander decks.

u/twoghouls · 1 pointr/astrophotography

Rolling tool chest for the marine battery. Army surplus hard case for the Atlas mount. Hard case with foam for smaller scopes. Soft cases or blankets for big scopes. Organizer case from the hardware store for small stuff.

u/Donnchaidh · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

I've been pretty happy with the Stanley cases. The removable compartments make for pretty easy reconfiguring, if you like that sort of thing. You do have to be willing to cut your own foam.

The 10 compartment one is deep enough to fit the Tantive, and should fit at least one other ship in with it. (I only have the one)

Amazon Link

Side note on pistol cases. The criminal element in this world often steals that sort of thing. I've heard stories of people using them to transport other things (model horses), and having their car broken into. Great for solid storage/transport, but worth keeping them out of sight.

u/t-spice · 1 pointr/mtgcube

I second his choice. Heres a link to the product (you can find it cheaper in your local hardware store. EDIT: In Chicago its under $17)

Heres a link to a picture I have of it in use:

I have 2 monster playmat tubes velcro'd to the sides of the thing as well, so it transports everything I need. In the picture i posted theres a 540 cube, 120 lands, 3 EDH decks, extra sleeves, and dice//tokens.

u/nfmous · 1 pointr/DIY_eJuice
I also organize it by flavor type, so that if I'm making a creamy flavor I can just grab the cream section and maybe the fruit or nut section out of it
Removable containers OP!
I use for my smaller bottles of flavoring, various needle tips, syringes, etc.

u/darth_something · 1 pointr/EDH

I use one of these for my decks:

I have 8 EDH decks, 1 standard deck, a box with extra sleeves and a dice bag in it. I'm going to attach the tube with my playmat in it to one of the sides using velcro strips.

u/lrawrl · 1 pointr/magicTCG

This version is much cheaper (almost 1/3 the price) and also works very well for storing sleeved cards and deck boxes. I think it is a little smaller though.

u/khelekmir · 1 pointr/magicTCG

We use this to hold most of our commander decks

I don't know if a deck box will fit in not of the compartments, thin ones might. You can fit two deck boxes from the commander anthology in each of the larger compartment.

u/Mayday-J · 1 pointr/rccars

I use these for my field box, they have several sizes. I think I use the small one for RC cars and the medium one for my RC planes. Big enough to stuff tools, batteries and charger in it along with the typical field repair parts. Front cover closes so drawers don't fall out. The one I've used for my planes I load up the top with 6s 5000 and never had an issue with it in like 3 or so years.


I did not buy it from here, just looked for it on Amazon:

u/Zerhackermann · 1 pointr/Pathfinder_RPG

Someone noted Wyrmwood. I second that. my non-playing girlfriend gave me a gift cert for Wyrmwood and I got myself a dice tray with a dice vault. It is outstanding. I dont even use my geek chic (RIP) dice towers anymore. Beautifully made and they use leather instead of felt for the surface. They also do towers as well.

For dice the best value I have found is wiz dice:

Wiz Dice have rolled truer than any of my chessex sets. and this is all matched sets unlike the chessex pound o dice.

I do NOT like the metal dice for use in my trays and towers. But if you must they can be gotten from a number of places. I have sets from three different companies and they are all the same dice with different finishes (likely from the same factory in china) so shop around.

THis one might be a slightly different suggestion:
A tackle box something like this:
and fill it with office supplies and one of those bags of dice.
Office supplies suggestions: 3x5 cards. post-it "darts", pencils, sharpener, wet erase markers (assuming the GM uses wet erase mats) binder clips. a small wet/dry erase board

And if you are feeling fancy... Ive been meaning to get dice from these folks. But I havent yet so I cant speak for them

This holds my Surge, bit extender and bit kits. The two bit kits fit VERY snuggly into the small pouch between the main pouch and the belt clip. The bit extender fits in the two little straps along the main pouch.

Its tough as hell, 10 times better than the factory leatherman surge sheath. It fits perfectly and even has a space to fit the extra saw blade and file for the surge.

As for the jungle primitive, i agree with vohk. Maybe take a look at the kabar large heavy bowie. I have it and its an awesome blade. Hope this helps.

But I'm sure there's better solutions

u/randommusic · 1 pointr/Wet_Shavers

That one looks cool and if it works for you (and the razors fit,) why not?

I am using these two-a larger one where I keep most of my razors and this other one for my overflow. The small drawers are the perfect size for a razor or two, the larger drawers work for razors with cases or other stuff.

As the drawers are plastic, the razors slide around so I cut up some thin packing foam to line the bottom of each to give some traction. These are not as classy as the one you linked, but cheaper and I just needed to stop tossing them all in a drawer so these were a huge upgrade for me.

u/FOH-Banana · 1 pointr/livesound

Starting from the most expensive...

  • Veto Pro Pac makes some of the most incredible, buy-it-for-life tool bags and also has recently added some smaller pouches. (link to pouches, but hide your credit card and then click around that site....)

    For just the basics (multi-tool, flashlight, pen and sharpie), I've been using this pouch from Nite-Ize for at least the last decade and a half, clips right onto my belt, usually I get a few years out of one before I have to replace it. It's not usually this cheap ($5.70 as an add-on item), hmmmm....

    This year I got one of these mag dump pouches and it's been an invaluable addition for carrying e-tape, tie-line, folded plots, other misc. tools that I need at various points during the day. Same thing a lot of folks use chalk bags for, except this one's got belt/MOLLE loops built in and I can fit a Nalgene bottle in it and still have space for more...
u/Nutn_Butt_Bolts · 1 pointr/aviationmaintenance

I'd recommend the Nite Ize Pock-Its pouch. I carry a Leatherman super tool 300, Nitecore P12 with pocket clip, & pen. I've been wearing the same setup daily for 4 years. It's slightly stretchy unlike others like CLC. It's also got some other slim pouches so you could store a couple wrenches or sockets, too.

u/DragTheLake · 1 pointr/livesound

I use this light, but have had many reliability issues with it. Sometimes it doesn't turn on for days, then works without explanation. Pros: I like the brightness, anything else is overkill for the distances I use it over. Dimming/strobe speed via onboard accelerometer is cool.

I'd go in for another light if I found something better. Biggest qualifier is if it fits in this thing.

u/fallennight · 1 pointr/gadgets

Haha, those are good, but I don't think you need 4. The double decker tackle boxes are really useful though if you want to get one.

Also, an artist box is good, and I bet they come in manlier colors too. This is a small version of the 40 drawer I have, and they are really useful for the small quickly accessible components at your desk.

For Tone gen, Fluke makes the gold standard. They also have a cheaper version.
You didn't mention a probe, so maybe you are looking for a cable certifier?. That's super expensive though. if you just have to test that there is continuity and not certify the cables, you can use this, or this if you want to look like a pro.

As for Screwdrivers, Wiha makes the best screw drivers, hands down. I have this set for working on electronics & laptop repair. Magnetic tool-kits are fine. This isn't the 80's anymore. There aren't too many magnetically sensitive items inside a computer anymore. especially with the advent of SSD drives.

As for a toolbox, depending the work, I prefer a tool bag or pouch.

Good luck, hope that helps. What helped for me when I started was to go to harbor freight and just get an assortment of tools. As I worked I slowly replaced the stuff I used all the time with quality gear, and didn't have to burn myself buying expensive tools and gear that I would never use.

u/intracellular · 1 pointr/EDH

I use one of these bad boys. It can hold 16 decks in Ultimate Guard Flip 100 boxes, or 12 plus a playmat tube and dice bag. It looks a little bit like you're carrying a bomb or a bunch of cash, but depending on who you are that could be a pro or con. Plus it has optional locks and keys if you have some valuable cards or shifty characters at your shop and it's damn near waterproof.

u/Banjerpickin · 1 pointr/paintball

Here is what I use, and it is freakin' awesome.

I can fit two markers (DM & KP3) + Rotor + 48/4500 in the bottom, and then the tool slots in the top allow me to rack my barrels, inserts, and maintenance tools. It also locks, not that I have to worry about that much at my local field. For $30 I don't think you can do much better than this.

Alternatively, and depending on where you live, hop on craigslist, go to the musical instruments section, and see if anyone is trying to offload small road/tour cases for pedalboards, small mixing boards, or DJ stations. You might be able to get a really high quality indestructible road case with foam padding for a fraction of the cost of buying new. Pelican and Gator are good brands and bang for your buck.

u/ginger_sprout · 1 pointr/Equestrian

Have you looked at the bags currently available? That might give you some sense of how people generally organize their gear, and popular features/designs. I've been very impressed with the Noble Outfitters bags, and I know a number of people who have purchased new grooming totes just because the Noble Outfitters one is so practically designed (sturdy mesh bottom that allows all hair, sand, dirt etc to fall through. Grooming bags can get pretty nasty pretty fast.) I also think their high end line looks really good for the price. The Tally-Ho bags are a good example of more traditional storage bags, although most major retailers carry their own house brand (Dover Saddlery, Schneider's Tack, Smartpak would all be good ones to check out.)

You might also want to go to some shows in the discipline(s) you will be catering to, to get a look at what's currently being done. You can also get a sense of what the market will bear in terms of cost. There are a lot of expenses involved with owning a horse, and showing is pretty expensive in itself.

Horse people already have a whole set of highly specific gear to buy. Luxury type splurges in the horse world tend to have a very functional basis - expensive equipment sometimes does affect the rider and horse differently than the cheaper versions, so the cost is (sorta) perceived to be a functional thing, rather than purely a status thing. For example, expensive show helmets are a status symbol, but they're also generally lighter weight, with much better ventilation (so much less sweating), with all around better design.

It used to be a very high status symbol to have a nice, custom wooden tack trunk. And, in certain disciplines, in certain areas, I'm sure it still is. But people are mostly moving away from those lovely, expensive, furniture-like tack boxes because they're a pain in the neck to move anywhere. And barns are not really great places to keep lovely custom furniture - they're pretty rough environments.

The only people I know who still use the old tack trunks have had theirs for 20+ years. Most people use Stanley-type plastic trunks. And the smaller rolling tool chests, like this are fairly popular for traveling away from home.

Another issue that you're going to run into is that the people who have the money for this type of luxury item are pretty much guaranteed to be showing with their trainer and a professional groom. The trainer and the groom will have their own system for how they transport and organize equipment at the shows. So the horse related equipment is not really their domain. Rider gear bags are always pretty useful, of course.

u/cr0sh · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

Have you thought about a rolling toolcase of some sort?

Not saying that will meet your needs, just giving you an idea of what is out there; search around on amazon, etc for more ideas. Supplementing the case with smaller divided organizers would help keep the smaller stuff in place.

I've also heard people have had great luck with baseball card pockets inside of binders to store resistors, diodes, and other parts...

u/salamander666 · 1 pointr/Tools

I like to car camp, but I don't like to camp right next to my car, so the wheels really help with heading to those car camping spots further away from the car.

u/dirkwork · 1 pointr/DIY

I need a better place for screw boxes, hammer, rolls of velcro, staple gun, some pliers, wrenches, hand screwdrivers, etc. I'm looking for something like this, or this, but more durable.

I have a case for my circular saw and drills already. This is mostly for hand tools and miscellaneous tools.

u/ProtoJMan · 1 pointr/EDH

Something very similar to this. Take out the yellow containers and use my plastic double-sleeved dragonshield cases and single-sleeve normal cases with art on them. Fits 12ish decks, maybe more.

u/myusernameisunique02 · 1 pointr/Tools

Yea, I wasn't sure if the soft case would be sufficient. It actually fits perfectly into the TSTAK II, and has space for maybe a few bit sets.

For small parts, I actually picked up one of these new for $5. The only downside is that it doesn't stack with the TSTAK, but this one does. I agree that the drawers are most appealing (I probably don't need the deep box as of yet, unless I make some crazy custom inlays). The downside with them is that because of the way they are designed, you NEED to have them sitting on either custom feet, or another TSTAK box since the weight is put onto 4 small feet on the bottom and results in the bottom of each unit bending upwards resulting in the drawers not working. Not sure if having a wheeled base is really necessary for home/apartment use though, or if it might be a welcome mobility thing?

That's true about the customization. I was actually thinking about making some sort of inlay for the TSTAK I for holding all the misc tools (pliers, level, etc.), but once again didn't know if maybe the drawers would be a better option.

u/Konraden · 1 pointr/StarWarsArmada

What's your actual budget?

I'm using a rifle case. It's big, 43", and I discovered the other night it doesn't fit in the trunk of my Miata, so I can't take passengers on game night. I'm buying and playing both armies so all that space is designed for expansion(s). The technician's case I'm also using was great up until Wave III\IV were announced and I realized I needed more space for more ships. It now handles all non-ship objects, including squadrons.


The Plano Stow N Go series of tackle-boxes are pretty popular. I think the 1374 will fit most large ships in the top part.

  • -

    This guy used Stanley Click n Connect boxes.. BGG has all sorts of recommendations.^1


    If you want a full custom solution, Feldherr and Battlefoam both have custom foam for Star Wars Armada, with Battlefoam offering the ability to custom create your own tray inserts if you only need so many of certain ships\squadrons.


    Lots of options, lots of prices. Plano\Stanely is probably your most economical option, and in most cases, you'll also want to source some cheap foam to cut\pluck for safeguarding your fleet while in transit.


    Feldherr\Battlefoam are honestly probably the most expensive option, especially for larger fleets, but it's the least amount of work to get it organized.
u/Kegstarter · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I've slowly drifted towards storing all of my small to medium sized gear in these organizers. Anything that can't fit in these either gets hung up, goes into a large storage bin/brew bucket, or gets stored in the kettle.

u/tourachsdoorbell · 1 pointr/zombicide

I believe you're talking about the STST19900! I just got one myself, albeit for the original Zombicide. I ran into the same issue with the tile space.

You can center the tiles on the grooves that jut out for dividers. It depends on how many tiles you have, but I have all of the original seasons/expansions, I and was about 7 tiles away from fitting them all using that method. The space underneath is the perfect height for boxes that minis initially come in to rest, so you can store smaller items ziplocked in there with no issue and add stability to the pile.

I wanted all of my tiles in one place, so I ended up using a Dremel to get rid of those grooves. The space still narrows near the bottom (the indents on either side), but I have just an inch and a half of clearance now. I'm in the process of modifying these to be the right height for storage underneath, but that's certainly not required.

It's been about an hour's worth of work so far to get the tiles in and the majority of that was just cleaning out the plastic I ground off. Just did it last night, so I was excited to see someone else using the same storage!
