I do a lot of engraving work for my various art projects. Over the years I've amassed quite a collection of burrs and cutters. Some came in fancy sets in padded cases, but a lot of them were single purchases individually wrapped in a clamshell pack or bag that, once opened, can't really be resealed. This makes for a lot of loose burrs rattling around, potentially getting dulled and/or damaged.
So I made some new burr cases
Skill: A little.
Could easily be adapted to make cases for any number of small knickknacks.
Step 1: Get Your Crap Together
- Rotary tool burrs and/or bits.
- Small storage case(s) to hold the burrs.
- Couple packs of Sugru, or similar slightly flexible putty stuff.*
- Rare-earth magnets.
- Glue (doesn't have to be super strong, but quick-drying is good).
Could substitute polymer clays like Fimo Soft if the cases used are metal and can survive being baked in an oven.
