I use this toolbox from Home Depot:

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...atalogId=10053

I've got one Plano 3650 box in there for holding misc. parts. You can fit one in each drawer with room for tools beside it. I have a large tub that I take to the track with me and it has a box in it that holds 9 additional 3650 boxes perfectly. The best place I've found to get Plano stuff is Sportsmans Warehouse if you have one in your area.

Recommend Plano 777 or 757 guide series fishing boxes....great for all your tools & oils. I use random other fishing organizers for parts.

I use a Plano 737. it has 3 big drawers in it, a side compartment for 3 storage boxes, lots of top storage, and an area perfect for shock oils, adhesives and stuff like that. I have had mine for years, and its held up well. I got mine at Farm & fleet but I think its widely available.
