General Information

Keep your machine’s cutters safe and easy to locate, by making this storage board. It also has a slot for the collet wrench, to save it getting lost.
The design uses Easel’s new Drill Holes feature, which makes boring holes the same diameter as the cutter quick and easy to include.
