I slapped this little box with drawer to house my dado blades, arbor, shims and manuals. The blades came in a little chintzy plastic box, an Ebay purchase. The blades while sold as used; looked to have never been used. These are older Shopsmith brand blades, I think they were made by Amana.

A nice self contained solution. You should get years of service from it!

I’ll have to make me one too. As soon as I get a dado set, that is!

This weekend I dropped my blades in the cheap plastic box and the plastic shattered. Looks like I’m going to have one of these too!

I just got a dado set at Harbour Freight. It just came in a plastic clamshell so I definitely need to make something to put it in very soon

Great project. Thanks for sharing the idea. I like purpose driven boxes like this. Another idea you might consider for your other blades.

Keep boxing and keep posting.
