I thought I’d post a quick & short review of the Sortimo T-Boxxes thus allowing anyone using a search engine to find this thread and share in our enthusiasm for all things Sortimo and provide an opportunity for Q&A.
The Sortimo UK online shop has had a few discount events lately but even at full price, these are a bargain. They’re huge and extremely well engineered pieces of plastic. I decided to get the pre-populated boxes with the red inserts (the smallest size) and bought a quantity of all the other size inserts for maximum flexibility.
The inserts are removable so you could consult the box, get the relevant item you’re after and carry the insert back to your workbench. The inserts have a positive engagement with the lid so hopefully this is an end to cross-pollination between compartments.
Some examples of populated boxes:
I’m in the process of designing a modular rack to store my boxes.
There is a sliding rail profile already molded into the side of the boxes so it’s a case of engaging with it.
Soft-closing drawer slides are used to allow access of the box without needing to remove it and place it on a table but still give the ability to lift the box slightly and slide it out of the rack to take away to somewhere else.
At the moment, I intend to use 6mm laser-compatible MDF to make something that looks a little like:
Still a work in progress; watch this space.
