Give your WW collets a fitting home
If your valuable collets are banging around in the drawer of a toolbox, here's a better way to protect and organize them. This attractive oak box has an oak insert drilled with 96 holes to hold all the WW or 8.0 mm watchmaker collets you will probably ever own.
The box features beveled corner joints so no end grain shows. The bottom is a tough hardboard and the brass hardware is attached with small Phillips screws...a nice detail. All surfaces are finished with soft satin lacquer that really enhances the grain.
The insert can be removed from this box, and it can be used for storing other items of value. Some suggestions:
- Line with felt or make special dividers to hold a custom project you have built
- Store jewelry, watches, cuff links, etc on your dresser
- Protect or display a knife collection or a small handgun
- Present a special gift like car keys, a necklace, airline tickets or a gift certificate
