Hey Guys,

Hoping this will help some of you. Photos attached.

I used a Taylor K-2006 kit for years. When I started buying refills from TFTest kits, the bottles were a different size, and wouldn't fit in the Taylor kit box. Then I bought a speed-stir. Then I had test strip bottles. Pretty soon, my test kit and refill chemicals were all tossed in a bucket with a lid. It worked, but it wasn't very organized.

I'd been looking at cheap plastic tool boxes and tackle boxes, but I couldn't find anything that I thought would work. Last month, I was at an automotive swap meet, and found a guy selling empty component boxes that he got from a NAPA auto part store. The boxes had removable partitions, so I could make the compartments any size I needed.

After a little trial and error, I got everything stored in this carrier. I peeled the sticker off the Taylor lid and stuck it to the inside cover. I also copied the instructions for the TFtest kit and taped it there also.

I don't expect you can easily find the NAPA boxes, but I'm hoping this gives you some ideas as you walk through Home Depot or Bass Pro Shops.

Looking good. Not sure if you can still add it to below thread on diy test kits, but there are more ideas there.

I copied the link to my thread on the "Let's See Your Test Kit" thread. Thanks for the re-direct!
