It is a great deal
since the 3700's go sideways, do you have any problems with screws or washers mixing into other compartments?

ps.. look at the 3750's too.. they make good tool compartments.


not my pic.. but you get the idea.

At first I had that problem, but that was solved with another item that is fantastic

http://onlybatteries.com/showitem.as...t1=56&uid=1690

I don't think I got them from these guys, but I bought 50 of these little 2AA cases and use them to organize all my hardware....They fit great in the cases plus it lets me really seperate my hardware nicely

I use one of these:
http://www.containerstore.com/browse...0&PRODID=62806

After watching Rick and Pillars use them hauling them all over the country and over seas and seeing how much they fit in them as well as how durable they were, when I saw the price I was sold.

They fit in most trunks and will even fit in a front seat at an angle if needed.

They roll and have good handles that will not break, plus you can check them as luggage.

And the best thing about them is if it is sitting in the back seat of your car or in your hatch back exposed to public eye it does not say "steal me " like other fancy bags do.

i guess i could always put everything into "photo cans" and go crazy with my label machine. LOL. Talk about obsessive compulsive. I'm constantly changing the way I organize things.

I dont know whats the hobby anymore.. racing or.. tool / parts management.

LMAO...isn't that the truth. I've got more Plano boxes in the basement from reorganizing my stuff time and time again.

The smaller Team Magic Bag is VERY nice and great for most TC or 12th scale stuff. I have the "Sportwerks" version that's sold through Horizon Hobby (though I don't think they sell it anymore).

The only thing I wish is that I could replace the boxes with Plastic ones that were more durable.

Best reason to get the Magic F8 over the SportWorks version. I do believe that you can buy the F8 drawers separately, though, I'm not sure they are the same dimensions as the SW bag.

Tried that...it's not the same size. The Sportwerks bag is the same size as the smaller Team Magic bag, not the larger F8 bag. The small Team Magic bag also uses cardboard boxes. I need to get the dimensions and head to the Container Store.

Me too! I also found a place that I could get the inner boxes from for $1 each. Unfortunately you had to buy 25 at a time but it was worth it.

The F10 uses plastic boxes but is somewhat hard to find.
