  1. yeah good idea, think the top will flex down when prying on the vice with something? havent seen how solid the torsion is sorry I didnt get that question?
  2. I kind of think I should have went with the stacking version. I bought the nesting ones because I figured the ones not in use (for future organizing) would be easier too store since they take up wayyy less space. but I've been stacking them Moore thank I realized
  3. https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop/hardware/storage-and-organization/containers/70869-allit-modular-storage-cases update on these lee valley ones I've been using quality Isi great really heavy duty but I just dont trust the latch system, when you try to ovoerload them it can be hard to latch closed and they want to pop up.. going to move away from these I think and try the worse quality harbor freight ones but what seems like a softer latch I'm also thinking about switching from trays to arko bins with little cup dividers in them. can still pull them out and put
  4. these are the same as the harbor freight ones except you dont have to wait on very slow harbor freight shipping https://www.amazon.com/Stalwart-75-MJ4645102-Portable-Storage-Organizer/dp/B017W2Q6PG/ref=sr_1_67?dchild=1&keywords=small+parts+plastic+drawer+box&qid=1605728957&sr=8-67 https://www.harborfreight.com/material-handling/parts-storage/organizers/15-bin-portable-parts-storage-case-93929.html https://www.harborfreight.com/material-handling/parts-storage/organizers/20-bin-medium-portable-parts-storage-case-93928.html
  5. trying to keep track of what little bins nest in what mixing and matching different brands
  6. For bin nesting reference purchased a bunch of these https://www.uline.com/BL_8768/Plastic-Shelf-Bins 2 3/4 x 12 x 4" outter dimension they sell little dividers in packs of 50 for 18. they also sell plastic bin cups in 2x3x3 and 3x5x3 too in packs of 48 for $26-$40 but I did find that my little divider cups from harbor organizers freight nest in there nicely and they stack https://www.harborfreight.com/material-handling/parts-storage/organizers/15-bin-portable-parts-storage-case-93929.html 15 bins for 7$ I think these are the same but cant confirm https
  7. thinking about building a torsion top workbench (I already have a roubo). do you think its fine to mount a metal vice on the top corner of a torsion top? or would it be better to laminate some 2x4's ?
  8. organizers at harbor freight for 7 https://www.harborfreight.com/20-bin-medium-portable-parts-storage-case-93928.html
  9. anyone have good sources for nice shelf organizing bins I need quite a few around the size of 4x4x12 (but varying by a couple inches from bin to bin) I'd like to find a company that has a number of sizes and will be around for awhile for future expansion of the system, hopefully affordable shipping. looking at uline right now but would love to hear your experience https://www.uline.com/Grp_325/Plastic-Bins https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-13396BL/Plastic-Bins/Plastic-Shelf-Bins-4-x-12-x-4-Black kind of annoying they have 24 minimum
  10. anyone had experience adding locking casters to those metal shop cabinets? I dont have one in front of me but thinking I might need to reinforce the bottom with plywood first in the corners or the whole thing, not sure?
  11. Anyone have any other solutions for sliding door hardware besides this rocker one it looks fine but the track is only 58" long and I need around 80" I'd like to do 3 sliding doors under my workbench too keep the mess behind it hidden hah
  12. good idea or bad idea witht the door shelving? love the idea but wondering if it gets really heavy and makes a lot of noise shutting
  13. didnt think about that but I think it would be like a foot above waist so obviously see it
  14. yeah I feel like the wheels would make it more of a problem rather than just stationary. although its not like its something I'm moving around regularly just if I want to change my shop or move somewhere further down the line. so I guess I could take precaution and just push it from the heavy side but maybe some kind of weights in the back or under would make sense
  15. I'd like to build a large garage cabinet (similar in size to those double door metal ones) but was thinking about doing the top deeper than the bottom since I usually end up leaning bikes and such against the lower half. plus I think it would look kind of cool to make. Think it would be to top heavy on casters and something I would end up having to screw to the wall? the overhang I see would only be about 9-12"
