I have also found the Fkambeau's Gun Maintenance Box which has mixed reviews and I cannot find out if the vice will hold a pistol. (which is my primary cleaning objective). Any feedback or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I easily get by with my Winchester pad on the table, but I would like to have all of my cleaning supplies in one place. Ideas?
Also check with hardware stores for storage and tool boxes.

They are there bro - but they are hosted outside the website due to size. If you are on a blocked system, or can't see hosted images ( like on a work computer ) they won't show up.

I will see if I can upload smaller images of the same photos tonight when I get home.

The tackle box works for me, I try to keep parts for my guns, and the compartments are great for little screws, etc.

Pic's look good, nice looking box. I don't think I want to use metal, but if I was going to I like the one you picked! Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas!

You could do something similar with a unit like this if you were so inclined.

Thanx for all the replys and ideas! I went with a 26" Double thick plastic tool box from Sears that has two removable compartments, a tray and all kinds of room down below to store my solvents and such. It's not as heavy duty as Dillingers', I cannot make my pictures small enough in size to show it. I tried for the lase hour so %^&* it.

Why didn't I think toolbox? Actually a little more versatile than the tacklebox. I may steal this idea.
