How do I properly use this hole saw on pine?

The only benefit I’d see is that the PVC being round is easy to scoop out of.

Exactly correct

How about plastic coffee containers on a shelf ? Comes with a lid and you can write on them. I use for wheelhorse small parts / El Camino small parts. Nuts bolts screws and nails.  Smaller versions of @Ed Kennell magic 5 gallon buckets. Plus I am keeping plastic out of the land fill and I am cheap.

Absolutely do that to some extent already. 

 

I'm lookin to have a 60 to 80 compartment bolt separator so I can spread out all our old unsorted hardware back into appropriate bins and reuse it.

Good luck with getting hard ware all together in one place. Been trying to do that for years  without any accomplishment.  My brother was given a 60 bin floor model unit full on bolts and he still has coffee cans stacked up with stuff. ( He is the neat one in the family. Can work all day on a greasy car and only has to wipe his hands on a shop rag . I walk by the same project and end up looking like pig pen from Peanuts) .

 In the interest of you not getting hurt with that contraption I am willing to send you a 4” hole-saw if you would like it. No charge you can keep it , since I have several. Would you have a mandrel for it?

If it's anything like alot of other organizing attempts of mine it'll look great. One time. For like a week. 

 

After that?

That's VERY much appreciated Caz.  

 

No worries. 

I may just order the circles off Etsy because it'll take a TON of time if I decide to make them myself.

I believe you'll find a 4" round pigeon hole awkward when removing bolts, nuts or washers, I made this several years ago and find the holes way too small when I make a grab.

 

Often I find myself using my telescopic magnet to retrieve stuff from the bins.

I rather have this type of system . Easy to see contents , can be taken right to work area, and no garbage or stray fasteners get mixed up with them.

Hey Eric, what if I told you I cut 12 4" holes in wood today at work for some recessed lighting and threw the cut outs in the dumpster? :hide:
 

I'd have thrown them in the back of my truck if I knew you were in the market for some!

@formariz I like your arrangement. There is one problem its hard to find glass jars with lids unless there is a yard or estate sale with a boat load of canning jars . Everything comes in plastic now .

Thank you. Although a little “diluted” after 34 years of use it all started with Mason jars. Readily available, cheap and available with wide mouths and lids. Also available in all kinds of sizes . Unlike most other jars they are also rather strong with thick glass.

pigeon hole

 

My hands are over 4" across the palm. I couldn't fit in a 4" pigeon hole. 

 

 

I'm making trays. 

 

Similar to the one here:

Reminds me of a story…

 


 

 

I can imagine Bear with his 4” hand in a 4” jar but won’t let go of the 3/8-16x1-1/4” bolt to hang Collossus’ transmission on the frame!

The center from a 4" hole saw is not going to be that much smaller. Maybe an 1/8". After you cut the pipe length wise it will draw into your pieces when you screw them fast...

I don't even know if I could tell you how many times I've done similar things to that...

Harbor Freight has a plastic tray just for that. About 8x8 with one inch sides and one corner cut out. Dump your jar, get what you want, and dump right back in. They work great and only a couple bucks....

Don't know if the shipping tubes are OD or ID though.

 

If they fit maybe they'll be tight enough that you won't need glue.

 

Maybe you can saw notches in the pipe to locate the dividers.

 

You would use the thinwall stuff for this?

Hey Eric, you live in a forest...you can't tell me you can't find a 4" dia tree limb and cut circles with a chop saw.  Might have to touch them up with a circular sander.  :confusion-confused:  After reading this, I could have cut them already.  :occasion-xmas:
