Tanos - Toolbox Screwdriver Holders
« on: June 27, 2012, 12:48 AM »
Since I started using the Tanos Tool box I have been missing the holes in the edges of a more standard tool tote that I had been using.  Thses are intended for screwdrivers and similar tools.

I decided to add some to the Tanos. I also found that narrow shafted drivers can be slipped into the corners holes. I thought about drilling  the corner holes larger, but decide that a slip or run away hole might  split the corner. So I drilled some holes in the top edge of the  ends.

This worked fine except the drivers wobbled way too much which was really irratating when carrying  and could easily fall out during transport. I glued tubes made from 1/2" PEX to the ends to stop the tipping.  One tube is capped so that it can be used for a pencil the others are left open for longer shaft drivers. I made  a couple of the holes oval for wide slotted drivers or tack pullers etc.

Also , be careful of the placement of the holes and tube  in relation to the side Systainer latches.

For me, the best thing about the tool tote is that when you are working on a second story master bath, you can load it up to carry all your small items needed, but even better is when its time to go and you have even more small items then you started with, you dont have to wrestle with carrying too much by hand, just throw them all in the Toolbox and you are good to go.

Seth, i think you are gonna like my Festool Mobile Cart when you see it in action? Eric

I used gel type CA glue with activator (mostly so I didn't have to hold it in place).  I wasn't sure if it would hold the PEX but seems pretty good. I have not used it enough yet to kow how well it will hold up.
