It’s interesting to look back at older pictures of my toolbox. Over the two and a half years I’ve been buying tools, I’ve gotten a lot.
These are what the socket and wrench drawers of my toolbox looked like when I first got my tools. Everything was in its original packaging, and the socket drawer was actually pretty full because of that. There was also extra room in the wrenches/pliers drawer.
This is my socket drawer today.I have a bigger box, so it’s a bit wider, which is good because I have a lot more sockets. I added Grey Pneumatic 3/8″ Duo Sockets, swivel impact sockets, hex drivers, torque sticks, axle nut sockets, and a 1/2″ torque wrench. I was able to fit stuff in a lot more efficiently by using both storebought and homemade socket racks.
The wrench drawer has also grown a lot, with the addition of large combination wrenches, long box end wrenches, ratcheting wrenches, and more types of pliers. I also store my 3 foot prybar in that drawer because it’s the only place it fits.
Other drawers have gotten a lot added to them, but not as much as these drawers.
