Default Ignition wrench organizer

The small ignition wrenches..........how does everyhone store them? Just toss them in a small box only to sort through when you need one? I have mine laid out in the drawer but ever time I close the drawer or roll the box around they shift around. As far as I know they don't make small wrench racks for them, so wondering how other keep theirs.

You can put them on a ring.

A tool bag or tool roll is the best way to keep your small wrenches. I take the tool roll to the application, this is a great way to keep track of your wrenches and also is a quicker way to find the next size up or down. I fold the flap cover on the back side and leave it that way. You could make your own rolls or for about $8 off the Snap on truck or website.

How does the bag kit work? What size is it and how many wrenches will it hold"? Does anyone have any pics of this bag?

Let me ask a stupid question. What is it exactly that people work on when they do "ignition work"? Can someone post a picture?

I've got a LOT of old small ignition wrenches that I've accumulated from buying tools at yard sales. But, I have no idea exactly what these are used for.

Thanks.

I've managed for years without a set. I might have a few C-man in my "extras", but they just look awkward.

You can purchase various sized kit bags from Snap on, they hold the wrenches in a vinyl pouch. Easy way to see if a wrench is missing or quickly picking the correct size. I have non snap-on wrenches in a Snappy kit bag. Hopefully the picture posts.

I like those single filing rings from the office supply. They snap open pretty easily when needed.

I keep them in the little plastic pouch they came in. In fact, I'm not sure if they've ever come out of that little pouch.

I don't use them for ignition but for some electronics (non car related) the small wrenches come in real handy. I never give it a thought until -B- posted about a magnetic rail, but I have a roll of a 1" wide magnetic rubber strip. I can use that to hold them.
As far as a pouch, they were never in a pouch when I got them. I've seen a lot of them on rings, but you have to go through the box end, and that is the end I use mostly.

Be careful, magnetized tools don't always play well with electronics, especially hard drives.
