I purchased a Milwaukee 0928-29 28-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 4-Tool Combo Kit and I need a much better way of storing the tools other than the bag they give. I don’t get the whole bag concept, it offers 0 protection for your tools and fills up rapidly with saw dust.

I would like to build some sort of storage and charging shelf / cabinet for the tools. I’ve been thumbing through magazine past issues and really haven’t hit on any thing yet. Does anyone have any ideas they can point me two?

5 Gal. Buckets, Or truck bed.
OK, really though. I haven’t seen many articles on this. I would say Just buy one of those stanley Carry alls w wheels.
I have two and they’re great. Oh actually thinking about it now I have recently seen a charging station cabinet
I think in one of the last 2 issues of FW. Mostly If you want to go all out and make a cabinet for them.
Make them to fit your specific tools. Do you use them Daily? Or Hobby? Travel or stationary? I’ll take a look now at some of my older Mags. See what I can fwd. you if I find it. I remember It was a hanging tool cabinet and all power tools and Bats where leaning at an angle (like plane storage) Take a look at some of the Tool and Shop Issues….. They have tons of organizing ideas. Again if I see I’ll scan and send to you.

I’m not using them to make a living with so hobby but more accurately, handyman type stuff. The cordless circular saw is handy in the garden believe or not. I use to make stakes for tomatoes, sun flowers, ... As for fine woodworking tools, umhem. I mainly got the set for two reason. 1) They’re powered by LiION batteries and 2) I needed a new cordless drill. Oops 3) I needed a SawSall.

I did find an idea in ShopNotes issue 58 that has me thinking. Always dangerous.

I’m looking for a stationary tool organizer that I also use as a charging station too. If you’ve got some ideas, I’d love to see them.

I will look later tonight on my home computer and send you pics of the one we built for school. It doesnt have a spot for a sawzall, but it might give you a start in the design process.
