That is really important: how YOU use them!Probably move 1 complete set of 1/4 to my work bench since that is where I use them the most. Put the rest in a setup that I can take to the carport to work on my cars or lawnmowers.
Yeah, I try to keep a traveling tool set together for the trunk. You never know.Get a set of them cheap plastic case socket/wrench combos and put the sockets/wrenches back in the case as you use them. I have drawers full of Snap-On/ mac tools that cost $$$$. I bought a cheap Kobalt set for a road trip about 5 years ago. Now if I am wrenching on something, I grab that cheap Kobalt set almost every time. Its crazy but a rarely fire up the air compressor anymore. Zap most stuff off with battery tools. Now I still have backups but I sure don’t use them like I used to.
Yep. I have 2 basic areas I work. Work bench with a pegboard that I am getting setup for small projects and my carport where I work on big stuff. So kinda need a portable couple of tool boxes for the car port. Seeing what other people do helps give me ideas for mine.That is really important: how YOU use them!
Rolling Snap-On boxes might make sense for an auto mechanic who primarily works in a garage. Pegboards make sense for a shop with a main workbench. Portable needs differ. Some guys have different sets that are just used for specific applications (chainsaws, motorcycles, lawn mowers, truck/car tool kit, etc.). I have some separate bicycle and chainsaw tools that are somewhat portable. Other than that, they are organized as described above. Except that I also have a box of 'duplicates' / extras / replacement sockets that I have accumulated from garage sales, etc.: those are mostly sorted by brand.
I keep socket sets organized on racks. The red Husky ones from Home depot work very well. The gray ones from Harbor Freight are not bad either.
You guys have a way to keep them organized if carrying some out to the field, away from the shop?I'm kinda out of room at the moment or do I need a bigger box??? Hmmmmmmm..... LOL
