I need two, another one for the power tool shop.
Frankly, I do not know yet what it is going to look like, but as usual let's first round up the usual suspects.
Then google woodworking brace storage and found these on Pinterest
which lead me to this blog
I like the look of it but definitively too small for my need
But I think I can use that as a starting point.
From bigger to smaller
Hand augers; These are the large twist bits on steroids used with a T- handle
Do I need these? No, they are mostly decorative I suppose.
Beam boring machine: A sit down drill press.
Braces: Wooden and metallic. The original cordless drill, hold its charge forever :-)
My all time favorite is my Fray or Spofford metal brace, its chuck handle every shape of shank bits I can throw at it, securely. Sturdy and reliable.
A short selection of brace types to incorporate.
Perhaps 4 metallic brace of various sweeps?
Breast drills: The manly hand drills
Just happened to come across this MF No 112 breast drill this morning.
So now I have an older No 12 and a newer No 112.
Granted I do not need three but...
Handrills: The ubiquitous Millers-Falls usual suspects and one Stanley ...
Second from left is a Stanley No 626 that I picked up this AM.
It followed me home with the No 112 :-)
Push drills: From Yankee styles down to the small jeweler's type
Gimlets and awls:
Various accessories for braces and drilling in general:
Spoke pointer, Hollow bit (These work together, so should remain together) depth stops, a large assortment of various bits etc. the bits will vary between the power tool drill cabinet and the hand tool room one.
Hand tool room:
Irwin, Jennings, Center bits, small assortment of brad bits for handrills
The cordless drill and Impact driver will also reside in the hand tool shop
Power tool room:
Twist bits, Brad bits, Forstner bits, Hole saws bits, small sanding drums kit.
Corded drills etc.
Not sure where such an animal of a cabinet will reside, I'm quickly running out of room on my bench wall...hummm I need bigger walls :-)
The space I plan on using is between the window and the power panel
Tried this holder to check the size required for various tools:
It holds push drills fine
Hand drills and breast drills fits
So does small push type drills.
So I guess I can start with that size holes to figured out my holding strategies.
I will then mock up holders to figured out my optimum spacing on a piece of cardboard to figured out my till size required.
So I am probably going to be alternating back and forth between these as time permits. My biggest problems right now are my knees. My left one is giving me fits and the stairs to from the basement shop is no fun :-(
I have recently been diagnosed with severe Arthritis in both knees, so that makes me officially old I guess...
I should not be surprised, it is the typical lot of an ex-serviceman, lower back and knees shot. Man was never designed to carry umpteen pounds of gear on his back for long distances. Thankfully I was Airforce, only did that sort of silliness part time, my Army buddies gets it much worse, they also jumps from a perfectly serviceable aircraft with all their gears on, me I just land with the plane thank you very much and I never had to eject :-)
Bob, planning his last major projects in his ongoing shop re-organisation... I think? Oh and perhaps a bigger bench down the road?? Now where is my Voltaren??
