2 CT comments and a recycling question
« on: February 05, 2011, 11:39 AM »
- A quart can fits perfectly in the round recess on the top of a Sys. Found this out a while ago. Don't know if anyone else has noticed this.
- Realized this yesterday. A 1-3/4" door fits perfectly on top of the CT hose garage between a Sys and the CT handle. Worked out really nice for planing the door.
Hope that helps anyone.
Now the question. Has anyone found a place/means to recycle the expanded plastic tool boxes? You know the ones that all the tools from HD come in. Paslode, Bosch, Porter Cable etc. I am so sick of these boxes that I don't and won't use laying around. However I won't just throw them in the trash. I figure that's a bit irresponsible. Any recycling info please.
Thanks, Markus

Have you maybe thought about placing them on Craigslist in the Free section

They put off a really cool color of smoke when you burn them.....

If you work at a large company they may have an internal version of Craigslist.

You could also try eBay.  You may be surprised what you can get for those.  Could help fund your next Festool.

If you think that sometime you will be selling these tools, it is often easier if you have the original blowmold cases. I hate them and put them in the attic just in case I need them to sell in the future.
