The Ultimate RC Tool Organizer 

This RC tool organizer will keep all your bench top tools organized and just a short reach away when needed. Made from laser cut MDF means that assembly is quick.

The Laine's Planes Desk Top Organizer


I have toyed with the idea of designing and building my own tool caddy, but all that cutting and drilling of the holes was a bit daunting!

I came across Laine's Planes and was delighted to see the "Desk Top Organizer" and ordered one straight away. It duly arrived a few days later, and the kit consisted of the few parts shown below




I am not sure where to place the decal and the small elliptical piece is a mystery! However the fit of the parts was first class and in a few minutes the unit was together and a few drops of C.A. adhesive made everything permanent.

Reviews

The majority of reviews were very positive. There were a few complaints about difficulty in feeding tools through 2 plates, but I have had no problem at all in doing this. Use a slightly larger sized hole and no probs! 

There were a few complaints about the price and how easy it would be to make your own. I much prefer to spend my time building RC airplanes! I think the price is very reasonable.

Final thoughts

I have been using this RC tool organizer for a few weeks now and I find it makes a first class edition to my workbench.

I would like to say something about Laine's after sales service. When my unit arrived I noted that the material was thicker than the laser cut slots-thus the unit would not fit together.

A few minutes sanding down the "male" parts of the tenons solved that problem!

I did inform Laine of this situation and he immediately apologized and said he would send a replacement unit, at no cost to me. Even though I said this was not necessary, he insisted and shipped me a new unit, to Canada, at no cost!

This is first class service and I am sure you will receive the same attention, if it is required.
