    Default Diy Dewalt drill case as eyepiece / accessories carry case



    Here's a step by step walkthrough of how I turned my Dewalt tool case into a carrying case for all my eyepieces and accessories.

    * you will be working with sharp tools so be careful and im not responsible if you cut yourself or are missing a digit by the end of this *

    I can add descriptions or answer questions later but the photos are self explanatory like Ikea instructions I think

    Great, I did the same thing with the Makita snap together cases. I have it posted on here somewhere. I believes it "How I Carry My Eyepieces"


    No its "How I Carry my Accessories"

    Mastercraft brand from Canadian Tire, not sure if available to you but maybe they'll ship online.

    Each piece was $10 (18" x 12" roughly)

    I was going to say Dang cause I hauled a bunch of those cases to the dump. So I ran outside (it's raining) to my storage area and I found a couple I missed. Nmatjastic that's a good idea. I like recycling stuff to keep it out of the landfill.
