I've had a few people ask about these recently. Figured I'd just do a write up real quick. Also not sure what forum to post on so it's just in general.



So a while back I chanced across this cool Sortimo system from an Adam Savage video.


I thought it was an awesome idea and looked into it. I was all for it right up until I saw the price. Maybe if I had my own TV show I could afford it.

After some checking around I found something that was almost as good and much more in my price range.

I found a Stanley branded organizer that had a lot of the same features and built my own.

I ended up doing 18 and 2 seperate racks because they fit well under a table I had at the time. Added casters (with two locking in the front) to make it easier to move.



I thought about doing a single large tall rack but ultimately ended up with 2 smaller ones. It's rare I need both out at the same time.

I gave them a fun paint job with one being black (mostly parts) and one being yellow (mostly bolts/screws/nails).



It keeps a lot of functionality of the Sortimo system but at a fraction of the price (I'm in it less than 200$ for both).



Is it as well built as Adam's? Nope. Is it great for home use? Yup.

They even have their own theme song!

Love the idea so thanks for posting.

I have seen similar containers at Harbor Freight at a lower price. However, the HF versions have movable dividers and not removable bins like you've shown.
