suitcase router box

Want a tool case you’ll actually use? Outfitted with a hunk of plastic foam to hold router bits, this 1960s-vintage Samsonite cosmetics tote is a big improvement on the standard form-fit plastic tool cases or bags provided by tool manufacturers.

The tote is easy to open and close; protects the tool like a bunker; holds bits, wrenches and other accessories; and doesn’t force you to solve the positioning puzzle every time you put a tool away. It’s big enough to hold both a router and an electric drill. To get a tote, check your attic, garage sales or secondhand stores. Bon voyage!
