A New Addition
Usually, when one announces a new addition, others will think it's an announcement of the birth of a baby. In this case, however, the new addition is a new tool cabinet. It replaces another that simply took up more usable space than for all the good it did. The new cabinet is by Waterloo and features five different drawers. These, hopefully, will allow storage of some rather awkward tools that don't fit very well on the bench.
The cabinet measures 14 inches deep, 26 1/2 inches wide, and 31 3/4 inches tall. The unit came with casters unattached, but there was a problem for my use. I have to have all four casters steerable, and only two of the furnished ones were like that. So, a trip to the hardware store to get two more casters. Well, wouldn't you know it, the caster bases didn't match up, and I had to buy four new ones. And of course, that meant drilling new holes. Oh well, that's life. Anyway, the job's done and now all that needs to be done is put in some drawer liners, and start filling it up.
I will try to post a picture after I get through with the modifications.
