This is a blue 15-drawer cabinet in the workshop where miscellaneous tools are stored.

Looks Like



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.)
  • Pliers
  • 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.

To Do

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.
