Basically like LP jackets…...but peg board. It did occur to me that I could have used old Rolling Stones or Jim Hendrix record jackets, but that thought was too late.
When I moved into this house, there was a bunch of pegboard on the walls of the little shop. Don’t use much pegboard since the french cleat system went in, so it was nice to find a use for this otherwise worthless material…...
Ripped a stack of pegboard into squares:
Took a third of the stack and screwed it together so I could cut out the center section in one setup:
At some point, it occurred to me that the shortest 23 gauge pins for the nailer I had were 1/2”, some I cut some thin strips for the back so the pins wouldn’t go through and used a simple assembly jig – this is the assembly progression and used the pin nailer on both sides:
Cleaned them up on the spindel and belt sanders:
The idea here is to build one for each blade and keep track of the sharpening history…....and built a simple containment in the corner of one of the shop cart drawers:
Also, one the jackets is 2x deep for the 10” sanding disc – which uses 2 of the center inserts in lieu of the thin strips – here is the comparative photo:
Should be handy…...you can pull them out of the drawer and carry them around if so inclined…..
Thanks for looking.
