Parts & tools box?

I currently keep all of my gun parts, tools, and cleaning supplies in two boxes. One is a 'cleaning kit' with multi-piece rods, brushes, etc. The other is a toolbox of some nature. I need to go shopping for a new box of some sort. I'm thinking that a tackle box would be more appropriate. At this point, I have screws, springs, wrenches, and all manner of stuff sort-of loosely rolling about the box. Some are in packages, some have found their way out of the bags.

What have you found to be the best option for storing and organizing your stuff? Pics?

Gun-Parts & Access.

Black Flambeu Tool box. I got three for under $20 at a thrift store. New condition. Stackable boxes.

Interior Dimensions
16 1/4" x 7 3/4" x 7 3/4"
(41.28 x 19.68 x 19.68 cm)

Exterior Dimensions
17" x 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"
(43.20 x 20.40 x 20.40 cm)

1. Use for ammo, do not use the handle when lifting up box.
2. Cleaning supplies.
3. Tools & Glock Parts.

I find the double sided utility box works well for the small stuff.

i personally love the old UMCO fishing tackle box for storing gun cleaning supplies. model 1000U is a good example of a wonderful box for storage. these vintage tackle boxes can command quite a bit of money as they are highly sought after by the fishing collectibles crowd. you might even find yet another addiction once you get the box; you may make the mistake of tripping over the beautiful old fishing lures that went into these boxes.... any decent tackle box with trays and storage room beneath them can keep your gun cleaning supplies housed for you. but watch out for those vintage oldies....
