Kevin45 Just go and pick up a Brothers Labelmaker. You can get the clear labels, white labels, or whatever color they sell and make your own. Where I worked, they use a labelmaker to mark hundreds of tools. The only thing is, you can't wipe the tools down with solvent, but if you use them normally and use something like Formula 409 or similar to clean your tools off, the labels will be fine. When they get worn out, just make a new one. Keep the label maker in your toolbox along with a couple of spare rolls of the tape.

dbrow6272 For those who drop things while you are working, and don't we all, my grandfather who was a mechanic for many years told me when you drop something stay quiet until you hear it hit last. Then you know if it is on the floor, or hung up somewhere on the vehicle. So quiet and listen carefully. Yes they make all kinds of socket stickers you can find them on the net or if you have a Northern Tools store nearby they have them.

71 c-10 i love hansen socket trays. The other day i was on the snap on truck with another tech from my work and i was talkn about trading in my snap on roll cab for a bigger one. The tech told me iv got plenty of room, if i stop makeing everything lay flat, and orginaized in my drawers. He has draws just full of crap with no orginazition, im still tryning to figure out how he is as fast as he is. But yea, those trays, are amazing, im geting the 1/2 drive and 1/4 drive ones soon since my socket collectiong is almost complete.

sha_ba_do_bang those racks are the best,i have them for all 3/8" and 1/2"impacts, after awhile you'll be able to just look at the socket or bolt head and know what size it is

matt167 Get some transparent sticker paper for your computer, use word to make the lettering, stick them on and touch just around and on the stickers with some dupli color clear coat to seal them in.
