I have one of those 140 piece (not sure of the exact number) socket set with the original box that has each socket separated by its measurement (english and metric). Well the box is plastic (what else is new) and the parts that hold the cover in place are starting to wear out. So when you open it, everything pours out. I've been trying to search for another box (without tools) to hold my stuff rather than just throwing everything into one container. I don't want to be searching for hours to find that dang 11mm socket with the 3/4 inch drive.

Any ideas? I've looked online at Sears.com and Home Depot and Lowes and can't find anything remotely close.

You can get these socket holders for about a buck apiece.
They come in in sizes to hold 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 drive sockets.
With your sockets securely organized, that only leaves your ratchets, handles, and extensions to deal with, and that's usually no big deal.

Good idea, then any tool box will work...
