Who makes the cases with the round compartments? I like the look of those...looks like the lid also incorporates an interlocking design to seal each compartment...

As with anything, you know its not "RC" specific (if it is.. wow). I bet we'll find it at some "beading" or "jewelry-making" site somewhere.

THem round cases dont look like they hold much, but the interlock top sure looks nice to make shims and other smaller things not jump compartments when we spend so much time organizing....

I once saw a "motor tuner" organize all his shims and springs and various motor tuning things in this lil crazy bin..

I just bought a Stanley 24 gallon mobile job chest from Lowe's for $50.



http://www.stanleytools.com/default....RTNUMBER=29025

Several racers at my local track have been using these for a long time, and they seem to hold up well. I have gone through at least half a dozen nylon rolling duffle bags, and they always rip or the zippers blow out after a while. I could not see spending over $100 on an RC-specific nylon bag with cardboard boxes when I could buy a something much more durable for $50.

Same here. I'm planning on getting the Team Magic F8 bag so hopefully my weekly games of Tetris become easier.

The top tool box fits my 1/10 scale sedan with body on it, on top of that is the tray which carries all my screwdrivers and commonly used tools. The big box below holds all my equipment on the bottom and there is a big tray on top that is deep which holds other tools and misc things and both with plenty of room to spare. You could put a second car in the bottom box.

As for the team magic bag, it is an awesome bag but its $200.00!! I would have bought one if I didn't find the box above, I love this box set!
Just picked one of these up, and worth every penny!

This is what I use..the best $60.00 roller you can buy..
can carry everything! and seperates in 3 pieces for easy transport.
has extension cord hooks on the otherside that is not shown. to keep things organized..has slide out bins for parts, tools, etc.

Can't take complete credit as it was pointed out to me by another local racer.

There is a company called craft mates that makes containers that the lids lock so parts don't fall out, and there are individual compartments so things don't shift under dividers like in the conventional boxes.

They are made for beads and crafts but work perfect for small parts/screws/etc.

here's a link:

it seems all the "new ones" have that middle section, mine just has two drawers. also on the new ones, the BOTTOM is an actually "toolbox" top down, whereas mine flips forward from the front.

i picked one up, but couldnt fingure out the best way to carry my spare parts containers since the "plano" boxes make the screws mix into other containers.

anyway.. here is a small picture of the different boxes i battle with to figure out whats best ;-)



i really like the stanley, but things shift around too much. maybe if i dont use the "top" part to actually store tools.. it might work out. hmm....

so far i LOVE my greenbox on the bottom left. fits most for now.

the top flambeau is great, but heavy for what it carries. its old school.

a. green box was 39.99 at sport chalet 4 years ago.
b. flambeau box was passed down to me from a friend who was into r/c and passed away.
c. stanley toolbox found on craiglist for 5$ ;-)

I never use the tool tray on my Stanley...
I use the upper portion to store my Plano boxes..that hold screws and spare parts... the lowest portion for my bigger stuff... charger, power supply, cleaners, towels, batteries, etc...
If I remove the shock towers on my cyclone.. It could fit in the middle slide out drawer.
