OK  - you asked for it but be prepared. I more organized than I am clean and neat.

Here's some of mine...


 #6 machine screws up to 1/4" in zinc and stainless.  A little metric on the upper right.

 5/16" up to 3/4" in zinc and stainless (mostly stainless).  Then I have a set of metal drawers for the big stuff.  I don't have to visit the hardware store very often...

Speaking of brass - I took a bunch of metal from a garage sale freebie pile.  What I thought was a 3/4" plate aluminum with some brass blocks turned out to be stainless.  The brass blocks (2 piece setup) was some sort of water cooling for a laser.  The pairs were about the size of a small brick.  Three of those weighed about 30 pounds.  With that, I had 51 pounds of scrap brass (door handles and faucets) and the scrapyard gave me $100 for it!

OK, first the roller bearings:



 


Now, Andries wanted to see the bosons. I took the lid off and, much to my surprise, all I saw was screws with threads I couldn't identify - I couldn't match them to English or metric. Very odd, I thought. How did they get there?  Then. I thought, maybe we're looking at the decay products of the Higgs boson. Wow! maybe a career in high energy physics awaits me - naw - I'm sticking with sawmilling, but I will contact CERN about this observation.  ;D

 Parts bins and drawers o crap have always intrigued me. I love opening a drawer to discover what might be inside. 
But then this usually leads to hours of organizing and reorganizing. Of course, I then have to remember the new spot I put the stuff!
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

At least his screws aren't loose like mine!
My dad had a rolling holder similar to yours using glass baby food jars. It hung up in between the floor joists in the basement to hold small items.

An old, very handy old man once showed me something that has worked very well for me whenever I need to bend anything, particularly anything hollow/tubular. If you can slip a spring over it at the bend spot, it is far less likely to kink. The tighter the spring the better. That Logrite is a little on the large dia. size but something like a garage door or motorcycle suspension spring would work. This does work surprisingly well in many applications.

I rolled a big log off a flat bed truck and it fell across my logrite.  It still works but is bent.  I always worry about a dog or cat or unattentive human lurking about during log unloading.
