We have a lot of small tools and parts laying around, and have been actively searching for good storage solutions to help get everything in order. Some of the better products that we’ve been trying out are these plastic trays by Itso.
A few weeks ago, we ordered a few Tanos Systainer storage trays from Lee Valley. These polystyrene compartmentalized storage trays are designed to fit into Systainer boxes, but we intend to use these trays in a few drawers to hold loose parts and tools.
Over at ProToolReviews, Tom Gaige has reviewed Husky’s 6-drawer tool chest (26PCHTHD), and rated its quality and performance as 9/10, and its value as 10/10. We recently posted about Husky’s new tool storage units, but Tom’s is the first independent review that we’ve seen. The review is quite detailed, and lauds the chest’s build quality and user-friendly […]
It’s that time of year when I try to put chaos into order and try to organize and tidy things up. As I was getting ready to order a few more Stanley 25 Compartment Organizers, I noticed that there’s a new promo on Amazon where you receive a free 12-inch soft tool bag (512100) with every $50+ order of Stanley […]
I recently purchased three Craftsman ball bearing storage products recently, during a decent clearance sale. I’m fairly certain that Waterloo produced these items, but I may be mistaken. Purchased were: two 2-drawer ball bearing intermediate chests, and one 6-drawer Griplatch ball bearing chest. Thus far, I’m less than fully satisfied with all three units.
I’m a huge fan of IKEA’s ALEX series of drawer units, with my favorite style being the above-pictured 6-drawer unit. While the drawers are not fully extending, they’re quite spacious, and can handle a reasonable amount of weight for their size and construction. As with most IKEA products, assembly is DIY, but everything fits together […]
Check out this video by Sears’ Blue Tool Crew, which features some of the new Craftsman tool storage products and hand tools that are being demoed over at the International Builders Show. Some of the more interesting sneak peeks in the video are new C3 power tools, including a new impact wrench, 4-battery charger and […]
While searching for additional products to add to our Sears & Craftsman Clearance Deals page, we spotted this fantastic deal. This Craftsman stationary storage unit has 9 Griplatch ball bearing drawers, and is quite spacious at 47″ wide, 18″ deep, and 54-1/4″ tall. Actually, this unit is better described as massive, with phenomenal capacity. The regular […]
We scoured Sears’ website and data feeds, and found quite a few hot clearance deals on tools and tool storage products. Given the incredible savings, we felt that these deals were far too good to only mention in a single short-lived post, so we assembled them into a Sears & Craftsman Clearance Deal Page. This […]
Over at Amazon, the 10 pocket McGuire-Nicholas 10 pocket tool pouch in discounted to $8. From the looks of it, the pouch can hold quite a few hand tools and has a decent sized pocket for nails and fasteners. McGuire-Nicholas 1NT-670-P 10 Pocket Tool Pouch (Amazon) Orders $25+ are eligible for free super saver shipping. […]
Looking for a compact tool or wrench roll? One that is constructed from a tough nylon fabric? With two securing straps and a comfortable handle? One that won’t ever let you down? Sounds like the Bucket Boss Duckwear Tool Roll fits the bill! We have tried and tried, but we cannot find an alternative tool […]
Sears has just discounted one of their Craftsman 40″ Griplatch ball bearing tool storage combos by a whopping 50%. This deal does come around every so often, and is still one of the best that we’ve ever seen on Craftsman tool storage. Both the chest and drawer are separately discounted by 50%, so if you need only […]
While taking another look through the new Sears/Craftsman tool catalog, we spotted some good looking garage shelving units. One of the most appealing features of these new floor-standing Craftsman shelving units are their adjustable sides that can be mounted above or below the shelf surface. If mounted up, the adjustable sides can be used to […]
We recently spotted (and examined) Husky’s new 36″ stainless steel tool storage units over at Home Depot. These new toolboxes are sure to turn some heads over the next few weeks as shoppers pour into stores looking for memorable holiday gifts. Husky’s main selling point is that their new cabinets have greater storage capacity than competitors’ […]
In celebration of the New York Yankees’ World Series victory, we set out to find Yankee-themed tools and accessories. We already told you about a nifty Yankee-themed screwdrivers, but did you know that there are also Yankee-themed bucket organizers, tool belts, and tool bags? Not a Yankee fan? That’s okay, Fantasia offers similar tool organizers emblazoned […]
Racor’s spray can rack holds 6 cans or similarly sized bottles neatly and out of the way. The rack, constructed from 14ga steel and coated with a durable epoxy finish, installs quickly and easily, and barely takes up any more space than the 6 cans it holds. While we have seen quite a few DIY […]
Stanley’s professional organizers are extremely durable, easy to stack and store (even vertically), and best of all the 25 compartments are removable, swapable, and reconfigurable. I now have six units in use holding all types of small parts and components – hardware, PVC fittings, servos, electronic components, grommets, and the list goes on. These organizers […]

Craftsman’s 10 drawer 26″ ball bearing tool storage combo is on sale for half-off this Friday and Saturday. We recommend the 6-drawer chest since its design offers the most bang for the buck of all of Craftsman’s 12″ deep chests. While most 6-drawer 12″ deep chests have 3 full-width drawers and 3 x 1/3 width drawers, this one […]
About one week ago, there was a thread on the Garage Journal forums asking about how one would bury their tools if faced with an unforeseen disaster. Without a doubt, I would definitely use Plano’s waterproof containers for the task if I had enough on hand. These Plano containers are water resistant, durable, and fairly inexpensive. These features make them a good […]
