    I put mine in a 5 gallon bucket, but its a pain to dump it out to find something.

    When I get rich Im gonna get a old rollaway just to put the junk in the drawers, should be eaiser to find stuff that way.

    A clean work bench is the sign of an idle mind.

    To finish the phrase...a cluttered mind!

    My bench is 10x worse. For me that would be one time looking for a nut or bolt to fix something. Take your pic and add every power/hand tool you own plus harley engines, quad engines, spray paint cans, oil cans, etc. and you get an idea of what my bench looks like:)

    I have 5 gallon buckets. But after a while, forget it, buy a box of bolts nuts washers. It's a pain. Unorganized mess. Cost me or guys more time to dig though 5gallons of odd ends stuff. If stuff isn't put away, tools ect it's a total waste of time not being organized.

    Cmon guys...
    You mean that you never dug into your junkpile and found something that will fix another job you are working on...
    Or..better yet...found something that you didnt even know you had.???
    Its like Christmas everyday.....

    Dont know about the Christmas part, but the nearist hardware store is 15 miles away, well after the beer thing you hope what you need is in the junk pile.
