Test Equipment Storage

Test Equipment Storage

Test Equipment Storage

I work in a very small test lab for my company. We do a lot of vehicle field testing, which requires us to have rolls of wire, soldering equipment, and other sensors on hand.

The department has grown very quickly in a short time, which has left us with a bit of a mess. We have no designated storage system for our test equipment, and unfortunately some sensors have been lost as a result.

Does anyone have any recommendations of proper storage techniques for test equipment? Looking for some ideas of storing things like rolls of wire, small sensors, strain gage equipment, small tools, etc.

Thanks in advance!

RE: Test Equipment Storage

Go to Bass Pro Shops or similar, and look at their selection of tackle boxes, ammunition boxes, pistol cases, stuff like that.
