Looking for someplace out of the way to store all your screws/small hardware? Want to keep the dust out?

Well, here is a great solution. They are made by a company called Stack-On.

Here you will find their website.

They come with 12 compartments with a lid that protects the contents keeping the dust out. The lids
slide back in a little to keep them open as you can see in the second picture. They can also snap shut when
closed.

They can either stand alone or be hung on the wall. I attached two strips of wood to the wall to make
sure I hit studs, and then hung them on that. Gets them off my valuable table space.

I have applied blue tape to mark the contents. I did that because until I get it organized the way I want
it I can still move the labels around. Once I get everything the way I like it I will print up some nice labels.

I just set things on top that are either overflow or have their own packaging.

.
If you are interested you can see in the bottom of the pictures a sampling of my routers, Jet mini lathe (only
used once), miter trimmer, my sandpaper holder and Leigh jog.

Those look real handy.

And I was going to ask about the sign even if you had not mentioned it. :-)

These look pretty neat and the covers will keep the sawdust from polluting your bins.

The sign though might be offensive to some. I dunno. Martin might have to “whack” ya for that! Been nice knowing ya! LOL!

Nice bins Gary…...I especially like the sigh above them. I need 1 of those for a friend that has a real problem letting them fly.

Let’s get those tools organized next…just kidding…looks pretty good from here. I’ve been using dog food plastic containers. They take up a lot of room…LOL. Don’t know where I’d put anything else though. Don’t let my wife see the sign. she will put them up all over the house.

Well, there are 5 units in the pictures.

Each unit has 12 sections/bins.

Each unit cost was $9.95.

Total cost for what you see in the picture was $49.75.
