    Sizer organization

    I was planning on working outside today but it rained. Spent the day making a holder and organizing. Need one for the top punches now.

    Looks nice,, I use a plastic "Case Gard" 50 round shell holder to keep my top punches in order.

    I was thinking about all the clear plastic Plano organizers from my bass fishing days that I let go or worse threw away, but they would never be as function as that. Nice work.

    I put my H & I dies in an old prescription pill bottle ... when you get a certain age you get a bunch of them amassed from the drug store ... Top punch goes in on top . Make a nice Label to ID whats inside and you can sit them on a shelf or put them in a large plastic container . A great way to recycle pill bottles .

    That's as organized as this Pack-Rat can ever get .

    Hey, nice job. I've been thinking about ideas to store MEC powder bushings and NOE bullet sizing bushings. This has some wheels turning.

    That’s a good job. I’ve been planning on organizing mine. I think I will copy your setup. What are your labels made out of?

    Thank you for this idea. You could combine both ideas and place the die set in a tube with the size on the end, then place them in a storage plate made to fit the tubes. Sounds like a neat weekend job.

    That’s what I thought. I need to pick up another. Mine must have grown legs one night. I haven’t seen it in a couple of years.

    I use a plastic 12 ga shotshell box. Not an MTM, but similar. It keeps dust from settling on the dies

    I struggled with storage too. But I bought one of these from Harbor Freight. I marked each bin for a caliber e.g. .32, .38. .44, .45 etc. It works well for me.

    shell, that is exactly what I did except I made the top punch and die holders separate. I didn't have any help and mine is nearly full...lol! It's not quite as big as yours....maybe 2-4 fewer dies.

    If you go to the link above and scroll down, there are two clear plastic parts bins. I got several in 3 different sizes awhile back when they had a very good sale going on. Come in handy for lots of things.
