This is a blue 15-drawer cabinet in the workshop where miscellaneous tools are stored.
Currently, drawers are allocated to:
- Auger bits (drill deep holes in wood using a drill-brace and these)
- Blades (spare blades for hacksaws and knives)
- Circular (chop) saw blades
- Detail Sander sheets
- Glass cutters and other 'special' tools such as step drill
- Grinding wheels for 100mm, 115mm and 6" grinders
- Grinding wheels for 230mm angle grinder
- Measuring (IR-tapemeasure, calipers, etc.)
- Pop Rivet kit
- Pop Riveters
- Pop Rivets (in compartmented box)
- Spanners etc.
- Special Long and Wide Drills
- Tank cutter
At least one more of these would help us to organise tools in the workshop even more effectively. These cabinets are often available secondhand or at auction - the older the better (modern ones are fine for 'office use' but a bit feeble for storing workshop tools). **NEWS** Dclarke (talk) 05:04, 28 January 2014 (EST) 'Triumph' - another 15-drawer cabinet similar to Bisley has just been sourced.
An alternative would be Ikea 'Helmer' cabinets. Flat-packed (so very thin sheetmetal) but can be assembled with additional reinforcement and fixings such as pop rivets to make storage suitable for heavier items. 6 100mm high drawers for £25, available in red, Yellow, Black and White.
Not all drawers are labelled - It is probably time that the pair of cabinets (Bisley and Triumph) were re-organised and sorted as a single resource.
