At least one more of these would help us to organise tools in the workshop even more effectively. These cabinets are often available secondhand or at auction - the older the better (modern ones are fine for 'office use' but a bit feeble for storing workshop tools). **NEWS** Dclarke (talk) 05:04, 28 January 2014 (EST) 'Triumph' - another 15-drawer cabinet similar to Bisley has just been sourced.

An alternative would be Ikea 'Helmer' cabinets. Flat-packed (so very thin sheetmetal) but can be assembled with additional reinforcement and fixings such as pop rivets additional to make storage suitable for heavier items. 6 100mm high drawers for £25, available in red, Yellow, Black and White.
