    Too bad those plastic trays aren’t changeable and what I mean is that too bad they don’t have things where you can mock up something in a heat resistant mold and use the oven to change the shape so you can change the plastic tray to fit exactly what you want.

    Here is my nailer and 10,8 V tools.

    Rovik. That’s pretty neat.

    I am wondering why the Dremel Flex Shaft is in the 10.8V category ?

    That would be nice. I see a few logistical challenges though.

    What would happen to the insert in a hot trailer if it was easily re-mold-able?

    How would you get the shape you wanted? I can’t imagine anyone putting their tools in the oven…

    lol I was thinking of mocking it up in a piece of wood or something. and you are right about the hot vehicle, it’ll probably melt it. I just found this at leevalley

    allows for you to cut with a knife to the exact shape you will need. I wonder how it would work in my buddies laser cutter.

    My skates were molded at the store when I bought them. Went in what was basically an oven, then I tied them on as tight as possible. They cooled into form in about 10 minutes, and were warm, not hot.

    Something like that tech would work. Not too warm, not sticky. But no way to tie it tight to the tool either

    If I could find a place to use a vacuum mold for a few hours though….

    Or make something like this

    (too much effort for me, but maybe someone here wants to try? )

    thanks to @ethanb for a cool suggestion on starting these threads for different size boxes.

    I haven’t been around much lately but I do like this a lot – much easier to follow. Great idea @ethanb

    sorry, I missed the part of the first post saying use other threads for discussion.

    I use the Dremel Flex Shaft on my Bosch rotary tool. I can also use most or mabe all of Dremel accessories on this tool.

    Isn’t that the same thing as that stuff they call Kaizen foam.

    That’s something I’m currently in search of at work. That type of foam is often used in packaging and we trash it as it’s not recyclable. I found a couple pieces today but I’m hoping for some big pieces. ‘m envisioning putting it in the L-boxx-1 that came with thre 12v starter kit. Planning on using it for all the little regularly used tools. (Tape measure, knife, GLM 15, FL12, ect.)

    I wonder what products it comes in, perhaps we can find a company that gets a decent quantity of this and ask if we could have it.

    Looks a lot like my 12v set up, but I carry my bits seperately. I wish the Bosch bit cases fit into the L-Boxes somewhere…

    I have a L-boxx 1 on the way. Yours looks like the perfect arrangement for my 12v tools, too.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    All good pics guys!! Trying to decide if I want to abandon my T-locs in favor of L-boxx. I have 4 1’s and a 3. Could make for a good trim tool setup…

    I was wondering about going the other way. Not seriously. But I really don’t like the way lboxxes lock. You’d be surprised how often being able to sneak into a lower box for a second without unstacking is useful. Though the tlocs are a lot smaller. There’s a lot of tools that just won’t fit (recip for one). and they’re more money usually.

    I don’t have any lboxx 1’s. A pair of 2’s and a 3d with drawers. I have a 4 on the way for my cordless dewalt circular saw. Was thinking of making a L4 with dividers for my finish nailers, but I think I like the idea of setting up an L1 for each. Just looks nice and neat, which I like.

    It’s funny you mention the locking design….it is the biggest thing holding me back…I love how easy they go together. The other thing holding me back is the L-boxx would be a third box system in my van…not sure if I want to go that route.
