There are never enough good ideas for organization, but I really liked this idea of using 3-ring binders for small parts storage I saw on the MAKE magazine blog:

Nice color code diagram on the outside of the resistor storage binder…

Plastic pockets hold the goodies…

There’s no end of things you could put in them. I’m envisioning binders for carbide insert storage. Divide them up by type of tooling, put some quick reference info on like the guy did with the resistor color codes (match tooling to insert type, with notes on SFM and chip load for various materials and applicability of various insert grades that have worked) and you’re there. Someone probably already makes exactly the right thing to go in the 3-ring binder to maximize its usefulness for this application too.
