  • Small Tool Protection

    We all have some very nice/delicate/expensive tool that we would like to protect whether they're in a drawer or tool bag/box. I've been looking (Googling) for some kind of pouch or bag to protect a very nice Veritas marking gauge. It's about 7.5" long. Currently have it in a plastic Ziplock freezer bag. Anyone have sources for things like this? (Could be leather, canvas, cloth, ballistic nylon, Kevlar, bark or whatever)

    Seems to me you could very easily make your own pouch for it. Just take a cloth and sew a pocket and a lace onto it. Put the tool in the pocket, wrap the cloth around a couple times, and tie the lace.

      Make a small wood case out of 2 blocks. Route out the size and shape of the tool and line with felt. Hinge together.
      info for all: --- "I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me."

        I made a box out of 3/4" mdf to protect mine. It served two purposes. First, it gave me a chance to practice making corner joinery on a piece that crudeness wouldn't matter and second, it gave me a protective piece that will withstand a drop from a 20 story building or a direct hit from a nuke.

        Have fun!

          You can purchase foam--not the insulation type but the grey foam used to line crates etc for shipping fragile articles etc. Cut a block larger than you need and using an "olfa knife" cut out a cavity for your tool. You can do this for any tool and if you want to keep them orderly--make a bunch of similar size blocks but for different tools.

          The material comes in various sizes and can be glued using contac cement
