Dave,
I must admit not having anything little that I can throw a dust cover over. Looks like a job I could do in my own shop. My problem is all the walls that don't have machines on them have windows, gives that nice light & airy atmosphere but less shelf space. I need to work on my drawer space & organization. Looks great!

All the tooling and hand tools are right there...even allen wrenches everything...it's all duplicate tooling and at arms reach.    Much more efficient ....

Next up is some nice boxes....I'll get all my stored drills organized.   Both the Mill and the SB have their own drill indexes that stay with the machine, but I have many other drills as well, and that has a draw full!....so some Schaller boxes are on the way from Amazon.

Ill be doing the same thing with the end mills and lathe tooling..   I just picked up an entire life time supply of HSS MoMax....and It'll be sorted that way as well

:thinking: I can't see any casting sets or part built engines.  Have you hidden those away as well Dave?

Dave, that is looking very organized indeed. I am anxious to see how the little plastic bins work out for you as well.

Amazon is selling that set for $36.  I think it will mostly fit in my bench drawers which are 26.5 deep x 20 wide.
