Default I have two organizers

The first is a box dedicated to drill bits.

It contains that great device above and a number of loose drills. Also has a small indexed box of common drills in the fractional inch category.

Finding the need for Numbered drills i found a piece of 1 x 4 drilled individual bits into it upside down to store there. # 12 # 19 etc. Works well

Sorry no pic.

We use a database with Vanís Part number, Description, and a picture of the part to help keep track of every rivet, nut, and bolt. We also have our Bins, shelves, and boxes labeled. These labels coordinate with a specific location of a part. Next build (-12is), we plan to amp it up one more level and have bar codes on all parts. The barcodes will also be captured in our database. Yes, we still misplace parts and spend time searching.


You continue to amaze me.
