Anyone have recommendations for storage for a set like this? I want to figure that out before I order these because I would hate to loose a piece from a new set in my garage

the best bet is to ditch the pastic case and buy a small tool chest. then organize the socket with one of these.

Sears.com

and the wrenches with one of these

Seriously, though, I would look on CL and at yard sales for a cheap toolbox. A neighbor of ours who likes going to yard sales (or likes bringing his wife to yard sales ) picked up a medium-size plastic toolbox for me this fall that I'll dump these in. I have also lost many tools on the garage floor

The same said neighbor also picked up some cheap sockets for me and strung them on uncoiled wire hangers. Great way to organize then on the cheap.

I'm really hyped about these. I can't tell you how much time I spend looking for basic tools or having to buy basic tools I don't have or that break because they are cheap (for example, a 13 mm socket). I don't even have a ratcheting 3/8" at the moment -- the ancient Husky I had been using finally fell all the way apart last spring -- and my ratcheting 1/2" is too big for most tight situations (you know, ones where you'd want a ratcheting wrench). These tools will change my life, at least very mildly.

Maybe we have an explanation for this....

Any tool worth buying is worth storing properly.

JP clued me in that a piece of camphor in your tool chest will keep rust away.
If you are buying, or already possess rustable tools (hello craftsman) you may want a piece or 2.
I haven't seen any 'new' rust on any of my tools since I spread some around, not even on the weirdo pieces that I seldom, if ever, use.
Of course, I clean my tools after every use and return them to their spots, and that does wonders for keeping them in good shape.

Agree 100% with kmaysob... ditch the molded plastic. those things suck.

Haha, the main reason that my tools are pathetic is that, when I was 14, I bought a cheap socket set ($19.99?) that is weak enough that I've broken/stripped quite a few. I keep my sockets in a Christmas cookie tin and everything else in a Toyota reusable bag I got for free at the Autoshow a couple years back.

Thanks for the tip on the camphor. I'll definitely try that out. If it's good enough for jp, it's good enough for me .

It'll be nice to get a complete set of tools to throw in my box that I can carry with me in whatever car I'm driving. I hate driving without a complete set of tools.

I feel like I'm a little kid and Christmas is March 14 .

Thanks!

I picked mine up today. I filled the holes in my collection and put the rest on Craigslist.

Now I'll have to read up on camphor and where it acquires its magical properties from. But in related news...



Yup, you guessed it!



The tools came two days ahead of schedule! How awesome is that? Unfortunately, I was preparing for arrival on Friday, so I can't unpack these yet -- I refuse to unpack them until I have a good place to put them. Here's the sneak peek I allowed myself:



Tomorrow I will prepare a place for them and then unpack and sort them sometime over the weekend. It'll be so much fun!

Thank you w123fanman for the tip and cmb for the camphor!
