General Information

A small caddy for storing 1/8" and 1/4" bits, collets, collet wrench, allen key, clamp bolts and washers.

This caddy is made to work with the standard collet wrench and collets for the DeWalt 611. You may need to alter your copy of the Easel project if you have a different spindle

Set up the machine, Load the Easel file and watch it go.

60 minutes

I used 3/4" Pine for this project because it’s what I had laying around. I would recommend whatever your wood choice is, that it should be at least 3/4" thick so that the bits seat properly and there’s enough meat on the bottom.

I also used a 1/8" 2-flute straight endmill. I like these bits because they have a very long DOC and they also leave a cleaner top edge with less cleanup required.

The screws and washers are for hold down clamps.
