I use altoid tins fo storing small things, like snaps, rivets, and other small items for leather working. It stikes me that they woud also be good for storin small screws, resistors and such, so I submit this small storage system for yor consideration. Thank you and please add any corrections in the comments.

great idea. I would maybe add a strip of ply or moulding at the back to prevent the tins from pushing through. I can see some of these ending up in my shed
