What does everyone store their tooling in when not being used? Share with photos....
Hi Neil,Holy Crap Bruce.... Thank you for posting those pictures because now I have ammunition to fire at the wife. When she asks if "don't you have enough stuff?", I can now show her your pictures, so thank you.
I see you have a set of 3 Mitutoyo digital micrometers. I have the 1" but was just looking at the sets last night. Love how well they work.
David,very well organized! That is along the line of thinking I have for storing my tooling. The only downside I have is that my tooling is right adjacent to where I work on my car. If I am cutting on it or sanding there is a lot of airborne dust to contend with. My car is a midyear Corvette so the body is all fiberglass.
I thought the sheets would be good because I could wash them frequently or whenever they came off to use a machine they would go in for washing. That way I wouldn’t have to worry about which side was dust free or not.I use sheets for the same reason, I'd like a custom made cover similar to a grill cover for the lathe and the mill. I'd think it might allow it to breathe a little, and provide a more adequate dust barrier
Wow!Probably not quite what you're asking, but here's my modified rolling tool cart. I made all the racks except the plastic ones for the Allen and Torx holders. Also, here are a couple of collet racks I made. I had two objectives: 1. optimize the space I have (at least that was the excuse); and 2. Practice, practice, practice. These were not particularly difficult projects, but I learned a little about layout and machining methods.
