Propress Fittings Storage Case

Options
Just switched to ProPress and I am very happy I did! But I can't seem to find a storage case big enough to carry a decent number of fittings for a job. What do you guys use?

    5 gallon plastic buckets, some with dividers for 3/4 and smaller. I bought colored buckets years ago to identify sizes by bucket color.

    I also have a few "bucket seats" for them to use for sitting and thinking. Thinking takes time as you get older :)

    Buckets are handy for an emergency leak also, dump fittings and use to catch water.

    For larger fittings and PVC DWV fittings I like these stackable, fixed lid type. Buckhorn model from Graingers. These must be 20 years old now!

    I've seen those Buckhorn stackers a lot and they are perfect for lighter, plastic fittings.

    Those plastic, 5 gallon buckets might just work out for me.
