   Does McMaster sell BSF nuts/bolts too ?  I am afraid that I deal with 
LBCs that are probably a little older than yours since that is all my car 
has on it.  That is why I went with the Harbor Freight bins alone, so I 
could fill them with BSF stuff not SAE or Metric.  I have not had a problem 
with sagging on my bins after I welded up my brackets, I think it is not 
the bin that sags, its the flimsy piece of plastic that comes with the bins 
as a hanger.  I agree about stacking them too, its awful.  And dust has not 
been a problem for me in my shop so I can't comment on that.
