In this workshop, I will tell you how to make a holder for the cordless screwdriver using PVC pipe. For this project, you will need the following. Materials:
PVC pipe with a diameter of 75 mm.
Screws for wood.
Drill and Drills.
Cutting machine with a table, miter saw and other tools for cutting.
Building a hairdryer.
What and why
From time to time I try to improve my workshop.I am trying to use its space efficiently and make it more and more convenient. Today it is the turn of storage of my cordless screwdrivers, because keeping them on the table all the time is not the best option. I used PVC pipe with a diameter of 75 mm. This is a common pipe that can be found at any hardware store. He died out and made pieces of the right length. For my tools, 23 cm fits best.
Noted,how deep will my tools be inserted. I did this job on a cutting machine. As a stop, I secured a clamp on the table so that the cut depth remained the same for all the pipes. Then I put the marks 4 cm to each side of the inner edge of the cut and made a cut between them using a miter saw. All the above work can be done with an angle grinder or even a hacksaw. In my case, I used what I had on hand and tried to do the work as quickly as possible.
Giving the right shape
The diameter of the pipe was not enough to fit the tools in it, so I warmed the incised parts with a building hairdryer and arched them the way I needed. At this stage, be consistent, do not try everything because you can straighten the pipe too much or even break it. I cleaned all sharp edges with a knife and sandpaper with P80 grain.
Drilled three small holes in the top of the pipe for mounting on a shelf. And one big one from the opposite side - it will help to get to the head of the far screw. I spun each three small screws with washers.The washers help spread the weight of the screwdriver over a large pipe area.
The work took 40 minutes and the fixture cost quite little. I liked what I did and thought why I hadn’t done such holders before. I think this is a fixture that everyone should have, especially if you have several screwdrivers.
