Revolution VI: Styrene Nacho

I’ve been working on my incredibly stupid plan to organize my tools by boxing them by type and hanging them on the wall, so I got a bunch of the littler, non-folding Trusco toolboxes. The only problem is that they don’t have divider options like the bigger ones to. The solution is 1mm styrene sheets! These are used in model-making, but they seem sort of under-appreciated for tool storage.

Sizing for the main business.
Cut & notch.
Okay to start off with. A little felt to stop the Dremel rattling.
Look, I don’t have a drill press, okay? I spent all my money on toolboxes. Well, I actually do have a thingy that holds rotary tools vertically, but it’s flimsy enough that just holding my drill did a better job.
Bits to cover the horribleness.
Pretty good start, but the top is ugly.
A little bit of square tubing cleans it up.
Last touch: so, when you use a Dremel, or at least when I use a Dremel, I usually want one of two bits. So: two strong magnets and some scrap wood…
And bam! A little quick-access dealie. The lid has enough crown that the cutting wheel fits.
All done.

I get my styrene from Evergreen Scale Models, since they have the fun box sections and so on. All you need are the sheets, an adhesive like Weld-On 3, a little brush, and an X-acto knife. I make them pretty snug, then secure them lightly with just a bit of Super Glue, so that they’re easy to rip out.

Works great for chisels, too. 2mm styrene might be the way to go; I used 1mm since it’s easy to work with, but as you can see, this one got a little tweak to it.

EnTirely Predictable

Q that I wasn’t sure about: Do LT225/75R16 Geolandar G015s fit a Honda Element without rubbing?

A: Yes, fortunately. The LT designation and resulting very thick sidewalls change the diameter somewhat, but not enough to make them not fit.
