Needed a set of carb adjusting tools to reset the carb on a weed trimmer...the price was right...$12...but no case.

But they did come with a flimsy tray. Not much good on its own...but scrap wood to the rescue...

Still pondering the hardware...but at least they have a home.

How do you keep a set together?
depends on the set and where I use it,,

in the shop they are laid out in drawers and my field kits are in pockets in bags,,,

I can see a few times where a case is needed but not often,,

I'm sorry, but good tools simply work better. And they LAST. They make the job easier and pleasant to do. For just another $12, you could have bought these Wiha drivers I own that are made in Germany. And the caps spin for easy one-finger turning. Plus they come in a great, well made, heavy green folding pocketed canvas holder that nicely keeps everything together, protected and organized.

Wiha is right up there with Xcelite, Vulcan, and Klein.
