New Function For Multifunction Tool

Well, new to me anyway...
I bought a HF air-powered brad nailer a few weeks ago. There was no case, just the cardboard box that it came in.
So I've got a nailer, the little bottle of oil, a wrench and a few boxes of brads to store.
That's when I remembered that I had kept the case from a Dewalt Cordless drill that bit the dust a few years ago.
I opened the case and laying the nailer on top of the molded plastic inserts, I determined how much of the inserts to cut away so that the nailer would be held firmly in position. I grabbed the multifunction tool and using the angled cutter, cut the inserts flush with the bottom of the case. It cut like butta' ;-)
I then laid some scrap foam in the cut out area and put everything in the case. I left some "cubbies" for the brads, the oil, etc.
Sweet!

Good idea. I've seen empty cases at garage sales and flea markets. I never checked to see how much they are, but I would guess maybe a buck or 2 at most.

Regrettably, I seldom buy a tool that's expensive enough to come in its own box...
I stock up on Stanley $5 tool kits available on Black Friday at my neighborhood Ace Hardware. I've got about six, each containing a tool and accouterments: Hand planer, Rotary Dremel, Multi-Function Twitching Tool, Soldering iron, MAPP gas outfit, etc.
