Why You Should Consider Gutting Your Tool Cases
Frustrated trying to fit a tool into its specially molded box? Maybe it's time to move on from the mold.
Getting some tools back into their specially molded plastic cases can make solving a Rubik’s cube seem like a walk in the park. Here are two solutions.
- If a tool generally stays on a shelf in your garage, shop or trailer, lose the cases completely. Getting rid of bulky boxes will free up a ton of space.
- If you can’t or don’t want to part with the case, cut out the interior molding with a spiral cutting bit in a rotary tool or a jigsaw. Be sure to leave the lip intact so the case will stay closed and latched. Loosely store the tool and all its accessories in the now cavernous space.
