I buy sockets (sometimes with toolboxes) at auctions for next to nothing. But having several sets all in one drawer is proving to be a pain no matter how I do it.
So I spent a few hours(mostly waiting paint to dry) playing with this. It will allow me to just grab and throw sockets in the bins having several of the same size without finding five 11mm's when I am looking for one 10mm.

Paint needs to dry completely then I will hang it up with some heavy supports before filling it.
This thing is for sockets. My current setup is not working.Interesting that looks like you use the wrench size instead of the bolt size,,or you have some really big bolts, that might be eaiser and quicker,,

I can put 4 or more of one size in a bin. I have more sockets then I have room for most in old toolboxes and several incomplete kits which has lead to dwarers and buckets of unorganized sockets. I generally throw what I need for a project into a bread loaf tray then when the project is done throw it all back. Using this bin setup I can pull and throw all all the sockets back into bins keeping it organized a bit better then having dwarers or several incomplete kits.
Hardware I tend to buy new taking the old into the store to match threads often upgrading grade etc and keep spares labled in the bags or boxes.
I do have buckets of used speciality fastners like starter or acessory bolts somewhat organized in 5 gallon buckets. I just pour it out then throw it all back in once I find what I am after.
Screws, nails, and non automotive nuts/bolts I keep in the house. Nuts and bolts that can be used on cars I have a multilayer shelf in the barn for.
