Hey Tim.
Did you source PolyButlers in US?

I've got a stock in UK, them and the smaller PolyNo.
Let me know if you still want them and I'll look at costs to ship one over.

PLANO 827-002 PRO-CONTRACTOR GRAB-N-GO

I got one of these not too long ago.

This looks kinda like the stanley box somebody posted a while ago. It is a lot nicer, as I have the stanley too. You can take the lid off and it is just like an F8 team magic bag in that all your hand tools can be placed in a shallow tray that sits at a nice height for easy grabbing. There is also a medium depth tray that you can put stuff like pitbull chargers or medium sized parts boxes. The bottom, under the trays, is pretty deep. I get a P/S, Turbo 30, DPD box, a Corally power case, a CRC 1/12 lit box full of parts and an ott light in there.

It's pretty good for $60 and you can sit on it at the airport....

I have a never ending cycle of Hauler bags/carrying cases. One month I have like 5 bags/cases then I condense everything and end up with 1 hauler bag, 2 months later back to multiple hauler bags and cases again. Its a never ending cycle!!! Maybe I should stop buying stuff....

Nah...

What size Plano boxes do people find more useful for 1/10th electric buggy and touring? 3600 or 3700 series? Something else?

Do these boxes seal the compartments properly so small parts don't mix?

Like most people I'm looking to combine my stuff into fewer boxes - these Plano's look like a good way of sorting the small parts (they're not widely available in the UK unfortunately so I haven't seen one in real life).

For large storage (1/10th buggy or tourer, chargers, transmitters, tyres, tools) I'm tempted by the Team Magic 1/8th bag (or one of it's clones), or perhaps one of these rollers with a big bottom compartment and a few shelves.

Currently using a big Nike sports bag for carrying the big stuff and an old cantilevered toolbox which takes up far too much space on the pit table.

I really like the 759 series for parts storage. The one I like the most is the 759-003 which has two large plastic parts storage and two drawers The drawers will hold parts that are a little too large to hold in the storage containers. Another good one is the 7592 which has 4 large plastic parts storage and no drawers. If you get either one of these also get 6 each 3500 storage boxes to go in the slots in the top section. These storage boxes are really great for small parts, springs, etc. The literature says the 759 and 7592 will hold 5 of these boxes but mine will hold 6. Even if the new ones only hold 5 these are great little small parts boxes and you'll find ample use for a few extra.

As far as I'm concerned the 758-005 is hard to beat for your tools.

These items can be found In the "Drawer and System Boxes" section on their website:

(The 7592 is in the "Guides Series Boxes" section)
