Most are in the roll away tool cabinet.
I have the most used ones on the bench and the flip outs on the shelf in SAE and Metric.

I keep them on a magnetic bar mounted on a tool cabinet door.

Allen keeps mine.

Otherwise they're the jackknife set. Nothing worse than a bunch of loose things kicking around.

I have a set that I bought over 30 years ago in a vinyl/plastic roll.  Since then I have also picked up a set with the plastic holders that are most common anymore.  I much prefer the roll.  The only problem is, after 30+ years the roll is in pretty sad shape.

I should probably commission Yotie to sew up a canvas one.

Good ones are in the roll they came in, in my tool box.
Odds balls are stuck in a board on the lower wall cabinet along with oddball drill bits and such

I swear I looked at McMaster for this and they were too expensive, but that's not too bad.  I have some T-handle allen wrenches that need a stand because the one they came with is too awkward.

I just keep mine in a coffee can.

In a box in the corner of the shop.  I pay a couple of spiders to watch over them.  They hide in the dust from the saw.  So far, working out great, none are gone.

Actually, in the original plastic holders.

How do you pay the spiders?

Do they get OT?

Holidays?

Uhoh
