    Highly Adjustable File & Chisel Storage

    At long last, a solution to a shop problem I've had for almost a decade. My chisel and file collection has grown but my storage solution for them has been nonexistent. It's time to fix that! We start out by figuring out just what arrangement will work and what I need to build for that. Then I get down to business and start cutting some parts.

    Re: Highly Adjustable File & Chisel Storage

    Next up, I start building the sliding tray for my files. This goes together reasonably well. While the glue's drying, I decide to start on the indexing plate for all the chisels. This required 1328 .135" diameter holes offset just about .015" so I could have infinitely adjustable storage as my collection changes. But the universe had some other ideas ... first problem with the CNC!

    While i get over troubles with the CNC, I pull the tray out of the clamps and get it fitted into the drawer. Work out a nice stop system for it as well. Then I tackle the CNC and get things back in working order. Back to cutting a bazillion holes. Also some brass is cut and we finish it up by loading the drawer with all my chisels and files! Thanks for watching!

    This is GREAT Beems. Ingenious how you pined the sliding top and how you drilled all the holes to pin your chisels in place. Really cool!
