Here is something that I hope y’all can use. Homemade chisel covers that will actually stay on the chisel when carried in a toolbox. So that I can haul chisels to a job in my toolbox tray I make these covers to protect them from damage. I have also found them to be handy when I’m working at a workbench because they’ll keep the chisel from rolling off onto the floor. Chisel safety is also improved.

To make them I use plastic sports drink tops and cut a slot with my coping saw.

Great idea! Just what I’ve been looking for.
I can see it now: “Honey, can you get us a case of Gatorade the next time you are shopping for groceries.” . “OK, but why do want Gatorade, you never drink that?”. “Oh, because I’m a Lumberjock and feel the need to replenish vital electolytes…and please save the caps for me”.
