Wow! I clicked because I wanted to know where you bought a split flap module - I was surprised to see you made it yourself. Fantastic!

You could attach the leather to the pegboard with pop rivets - more permanent, but would allow this for pegboards that do not swing out from the wall. To remove or reposition the holsters, you would need to drill out the center of the pop rivet. I'd also put a washer on the rivet to prevent the leather tearing out. Thanks for the positive feedback!
Acrylic Router Base Plate
Thank you! I appreciate the positive feedback. If you make anything neat out of that surplus seatbelt you mentioned, I’d love to see what you made. I over complicate and over engineer on purpose. Because continuous improvement on my tools and processes is how I learn best. And I love to learn from others in the community too!

If you still have this project, do you mind telling us what dimensions you used for the length of the slots cut?This is really neat. I want to build several of these trays and put them on drawer slides in a small cabinet.

Wow! That's pretty intense. Thanks for sharing that. I liked a lot of his ideas to combine work areas into one work table.
That's a great idea - I hadn't thought of modeling the hardware store. I do a little bit for my parts storage, but this opens my mind to a new perspective on how to group things. Thanks for the comment!
Yes, I would love a barn. Moving to a farm or ranch wasn't in the cards. I use memory tricks sometimes too - my Irwin QuickGrip clamps look like a manta ray when one is flipped the other way. So I hang them on pegboards as manta ray shapes, and I always remember where they go. Plus, manta rays are pretty cool. Good tip on the loops of rope and magnets. Thanks!
Glad it helped you. I tend to think in processes and this method of optimization works for me. Good luck with your new shop, when you get it organized post up some pictures!
After move in, the first priority was unpacking the kitchen, the second was planting the garden and the third was unpacking my tools. ;-)
Compact Dust Collector
Yeah. I like to get everything visible and then group and move things to their most functional places. Everything is changing in my shop. Eventually I'll get there. Thanks for the comments!
Thanks for letting me know about 5S. I’m a software engineer, so I was loosely basing this philosophy on Agile principles. I had no idea about 5S; thanks for helping me learn something new!
Aww thanks! I've always had a small shop. I get frustrated when my creative energy is spent organizing before each project so I had to develop a system.

The Particle Photon/Electron would be neat here, as you could integrate the message to wifi/cell to send custom messages, tweets or whatever. Cool project!
Amazing build. Good luck in the contests. Beautifully machined, will last for years for sure!
Scott, really cool thank you. You helped me out when using the rc.local file wasn't running on boot.One piece of feedback, is that crontab should be able to just run the python script directly, without needing to create a bash wrapper script to launch python.You can add the line:@reboot python /absolute/path/of/my/script.pyTo cron and it will run fine. The logger line you added above also is helpful too.If your script uses python 3, then just use something like:@reboot python3 /absolute/path/of/my/script.pyRunning it this way will avoid the need to use cd commands in bash to connect to the directory. Just assume you're starting from root at boot, and then call the script with its direct path.Great Instructable. Helped a ton.
