So I have to credit the inspiration for this one to LJ member SirFatty (Dave) because it was a great idea. Mine’s a little bulkier, but I used what I had on hand. I also wanted to experiment with using neodymium magnets instead of latches. I was a little worried they wouldn’t hold, but those little suckers are strong. Critiques welcome… thanks for looking!

Nice job Tyler.
I have to make one of those.
The plastic case my brad nailer came with has about had it.

This is very utilitarian and should give years of effective service. It is a good solid build, and has all the elements of effective design. Well done.

In my shop, I find that when I build jigs and storage boxes adding what attractiveness I can to my tools increases my pleasure of using them. Those magnets are strong little suckers, aren’t they? Good concept.

Hey Tyler,

The flat top and magnets are a definite upgrade! You’ll appreciate not have to search around for the gun, then the nails, then the oil…

Looks great!
