Hi Jay Cee,

I keep 2 thru 10mm and some half sizes too in allen keys. I have multiple 4, 5 and sixes since they are the most frequently used and I don't want to have to search for them. I also have a combination set on sockets so I can torque them.

The Torx I have a nut driver combination type set and I have another combination set on sockets so I can use a ratchet.
