    All-

    I just wanted to share the gauge change storage that my Dad built me for Christmas. Originally looked at the Spolar gauge caddies but decided that I didn't like the price, nor did I like that they would sit out when most of the time the 12 gauge dies would be on the machine. Box has storage on top and room below for the tooling head and shell holders. Will keep them secure, out of the way and dust free.

    Now I just need to find a set of 410 dies to complete my set.

    Very nice and well thought out. I just bought a 6 drawer (2 wide and 3 high) set of small drawers at Ikea and glued a board on top for my die sets. Four of the drawers are labeled with the gauge and all the dies go in there and the tool set goes ontop of the board. the other two drawers are for spare parts and for tools. Not near as neat and tidy as yours.

    Thanks guys. I like it. The only other thing I will do is buy a inexpensive 1/2" and 9/16" (I think that is the size) end wrench and put them in the box too. That way I don't have to drag out other tools for the gauge change.

    Your dad did a great job on that setup. Well planned and well made.
