Small Tool Caddy by BenJackson Feb 26, 2013


A laser cut tool caddy for a small tool tote. I wanted vertical storage for quick access and the tote just didn't have the right sort of loops/webbing for the job. It's got 3 layers (the bottom is mostly solid) with custom cutouts for each tool. This thing is mostly for your inspiration -- it's unlikely you have all the same tools!

In case you're curious, here's what's loaded in it: I really like the Lutz ratcheting screwdriver with integrated bit storage. I've had one for a long time and I just bought a couple more. The Channellock 430 (the large blue-handled pliers) aren't my favorite due to the shape of the jaws. The Pittsburgh (Harbor Freight) adjustable wrench is actually quite nice and has an accurate scale in inches and mm. The Irwin (Vise Grip) needle nose pliers are also new and they don't close as cleanly as I'd like (e.g. a piece of paper will slide right out without a strong squeeze on the handles).

Designed for 5mm laser-cut plywood.

The SVG and the DXF each have all three layers stacked on top of each other. Each layer (bottom, lower, upper) also needs the outline layer cutout. The supports cut separately. The CamBam job generates 4 gcode files to cut each layer individually. If you wanted to print this to something like an Epilog with a printer driver style interface you'd have to move the layers around.
