Introduction: Repair Tools Storage

Hello, and welcome to my second Instructable. :)

I´m repairing many mobile phones, iPhones, Tablets and I have many repair tools for the repair. Sometimes I don´t have time and mood to search through all the tools to find the right tool I need. So one day I found an Idea, how I could solve my problem.

Step 1: What You Will Need:

For this Project you will need these Items:

  • needle
  • black thread
  • rubber band
  • scissors
  • cork-plate
  • hot-glue gun

I found for my project a case, in which I would like to storage all the tools. You can use a box, or other storage option which you would like to use.

Step 2: Lets Get Started..

If you collected all your Items, let´s start with the work.

I started with stiching the rubber-band to the cork plate. Every time I used a tool to align the distance between the singular stitches. It is not good to use an sewing machine, it doesn´t work this way.. Make as many "compartments" as how much you need, and how much tools you have. It was a hard work to do it by hand, but if you are patient enough, you can do it.

Step 3: Finishing I.

If you have all the compartments stitched, test it out, if all the tools fit in. In the end, I also have cut the cork-plate, so the size is smaller.

Step 4: Finishing II.

After you placed all the cork-plates in your storage place and adjusted once again their sizes, use your hot-glue gun to glue the cork-plates, like in my case, to the bottom of the storage box/etc..

In the end, you have a nice looking, and professional repair-tools storage place.

The most time you need is for stitching the rubber-band to the cork-plate. Because you do it by hand, it consumes much time.

If you are fast enough, you can do it in one day.

Thanks for reading! :)

(Next time I will show you how you can make a nice screw-storage tool, when you are repairing mobile devices. )

That's a great looking set of organized tools!

There's nothing worse than having to dig through a pile of items to find the one you need. This will surely speed up your repair work. Well done.
