The thing i hate is trying to find used ones that dont sell for 90% of MSRP. Dam things sometimes get more second hand on ebay than they do for new ones!

Re: Nail And Screw Storage


They never go for less on ebay (in canada) with shipping....never.

I pay 76 bucks + 13% Tax at Lee Valley.

or 87.89 from Ultimate Tools or 69.50US + drive to NY.

I think that is the best part. If I need to generate some cash quick, I know what to sell.

I give them that. It's nice knowing that no matter where you buy the stuff you aint going to get home and find them on sale for half the price you paid from some online store. Doing this keeps the used values nice and high. Not good for people looking for used equipment but good for new buyers.

Re: Nail And Screw Storage


Here is what i use for day to day screws, nails, anchors, wire nuts, ect. You can fit 4 or 5 in a five gallon bucket. I use one bucket for each type, all screws in one, all nails in one, ect. And if you know you dont need them all you can pick and chose what containers you take by putting them in a different bucket and go on about your business, Cheap and effective.Name:  bucket organizer 3.49.jpg

Have used these for years with no problems.
No need to re invent the wheel.
I beat the sh!t out of the same $25.00 tackle box right through my youth and well into my 30's.

Re: Nail And Screw Storage


I use these. They stack well in my shop and I take which ones I need each day. One box for each size they are water proof and durable. Don't break up when it gets cold out. I even colour code the top of the boxes so I know what size they are.

Re: Nail And Screw Storage


I think the fes- tool are nice for sure but I cant see spending the money my crew is rough on stuff and for some odd reason they have done very well with the black and yellow Stanleys Menards puts on sale every other week we used paint markers and write sizes and names on the lids and fronts and even the apprentices are finding parts the first time its really nice. My vote for Stanley. We also have a couple of the $30 Home Depot specials the latches are already broke on the piece of junk. I could have bought 3- 4 Stanleys for the price of it ......grrrrrr

Re: Nail And Screw Storage


Like Tevy on Fiddler on the roof says


Tevy: youre right...
counter arguement
Tevy: youre right too

But Tevy they both cannot be right.

Tevy: you are also right.

The fact is Systainers don't work for everyone.
They are not the answers for roofers, framers, rockers, painters, concrete men.

But if you are a Remodeler, plumber, electrician, trim carpenter, tilesetter, data cabling installer, handyman, hvac and are profitable now, where at least 40% of your work are jobs last less than a week. Switching to systainer kits for your tools and consumables (all or nothing) will make you money with added efficiency, by 6 months after conversion or i will buy your boxes at 85% of msrp shipped.

Re: Nail And Screw Storage


Whatever you DON"T keep them,or anything for that matter,in one of those big Stanley tool box's with the wheels. At least not outside in a gnarly rain storm.
They are NOT water proof....Found that out the hard way.
