Let's see your toolbox!

Like most mechanics, my collection of tools has steadily increased over the years as the complexity of the projects I'm working on has increased along with my experience. This is just a small snapshot of the many boxes of tools I have, but this is my go-to box that contains my most used tools.
The first drawer contains the largest tools - a set of three Craftsman torque wrenches, SK breaker bars, and a 1/2" drive SK ratchet. On the left are my specialty Audi tools like a crank seal pressing tool, rear main seal presser, clutch alignment tool, and subframe alignment pins.
The second drawer is the most opened and includes all of my 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" drive sockets, a set of hex bit sockets, open end wrenches, and ratcheting box end wrenches.
The third drawer contains more specialty tools like snap ring pliers, a large set of 1/4" specialty bits, tap and die set, a spare SK ratchet, and some ratchet adapters.
Last but not least, the three smaller drawers store all my screwdrivers, telescoping mirror, picks, clippers, spudgers, pens & pencils, and a log book. The top shelf has my most used 1/4" ratchet set, a set of 1/4" and 3/8" torx bits, and my plate of stickers.
Show off your toolkit!

I know this is old, but how do you store all your loose fasteners. I always have extra bolts, screws, washers, etc., after every project. Bags of them now in my toolbox, taking up space.

I have used glass baby food jars for over 45 years. You can see in them and you can screw the top to
the bottom of a wood shelve. Otherwise I just use the slide out plastic drawers for the items that I use on a regular basis. You can also use the larger plastic mayonnaise jars to mount just like the glass baby jars. I was real lucky in the early 60's to find a tall metal file card filling cabinet to fill with the baby jars. hope that this works for you. wpmason
Well organized tools.....I am glad to see that somebody can do it!
72" wide 69" tall 22" deep and completly maxed out. Waiting to move in a house and have my own garage to set myself up, this is a place I rent.

Very nice!
Super dirty, but at least we got those sweet foam cutouts!

Alright, I need to upgrade. That's glorious.
So organized! Makes me miss my roll-away so much.
