Posted this earlier, but it seems to have got lost in the ether.

I seem to get various things that come in blister packs which would be better in some sort of box. The Point-to-Point is a good example. It really doesn't want throwing in a drawer with other stuff.

Before I start making boxes, the thought struck me that it might be better if I made modular boxes. The catering industry, for example, uses Metronorm stainless steel containers which are all ratios of each other. Into the same space, you can fit one big one, two half sized ones or three third sized ones.

By adopting the same principle for tool storeage I could stack things better, find them more easily on a shelf and batch produce some standard components that could be just cut to length and finished as and when required.

The question is, what module to work to? There is no point in reinventing the wheel if someone has already sorted this. Has anyone tried it, or know of the sizes of any commercial equivalent?

Cheers

Peter

Are you talking about relatively small parts and tools, or large ones, Peter?
I'm thinking smallish tools like Kregs, Point to point, Linenfold jig, say stuff up to the size of a laptop and up to 2" thick, with ratios within that. I hadn't tought of a drawer system but it could suit that, too, with modular interiors.

Cheers
