Handy Ideas For Storing Small Tools And Parts
Keith Bleicher, Shushan, N.Y.: Im a licensed master electrician and overhead crane technician, and also a backyard welder and mechanical designer. Since I often have to work alone, Ive come up with some handy ideas for storing small tools and parts.
  One idea is to use the cardboard cartons that hold new spools of MIG welding wire. The boxes are about 14 in. square, and by splitting them in half and flipping them upside down, you have 2 instant bins that will fit neatly into cabinet drawers. Plastic margarine containers or baby wipe containers can be placed inside them.
  I also take a 1/2-gal. cardboard milk container and cut one side open to make small bins. The waxy material that coats the containers keeps oil and other lubricants from leaking out.
