Default Tonys Screw kit and Plano organizer

I got the Tonys screw kit for the 5ive and wow, he really out did himself. The screws are sorted into individually marked zip lock baggies by head type, size, and length. The kit includes all of the cap, flat, and button heads along with washers, SS washers, a lock washer, lock nuts and set screws. Its a great kit and far exceeds the losi emergency hardware kit I had, except for the left hand thread shock mount screws, which isnt a big deal. Im very happy with it.

I've been looking for a plano organizer that holds all of my hardware for some time. I have a bigger plano box that ive been using for some time and it has three drawers of organizers and cant accomodate all the screws into individual bins so I lump screws by size and head type and then have to hunt down the right length in the bin. Not a huge hassle but I was looking for something better. I was at Menards yesterday and I finally found a organizer that does this, and its only $10. Its a Plano double cover jock jaw organizer. It has more than enough bins to organize the screws into their own bins how they came from Tonys scrwes (individual bins by head type, size, and length). Its got a good amount of extra bins left over still as well. Very happy I came across this yesterday.

I took a plano like organizer that had the little removable dividers to put my tonys screw kits in for my ofna hyper 9e and savage ss/super 5sc. I took all the screws out of their bags then put the labels on the lid so when it is open all I have to do is look for what I want and grab the screw.

If u go to lowes, they have these double drawer flip open boxes and organizers in them. Almost like a plumbers toolbox. And the drawers are separated. That's what I use. I also purchased a huge 79quart wheel able box that I can throw everything in except the truck to bring with me as well. Works great for my small scales too. I can put two 1:10 trucks in and 2-3 toolboxes mentioned with my charger no probs.

Thanks for listing as I'm equipping myself thru the up coming months for sure. I'm fairly new to the 5ives and been dealing with small scale racing lately.

Thanks JA I think you made it a easier choice for me to build a screw kit over buying a large one.
