Collet wrench storage on open end plates

Post by WillAdams » Sun Dec 22, 2013 7:27 pm

I was tidying up things and came upon the bag of oddments from the Altocraft spindle for the SO2 and noticed the collet wrench --- while trying to decide on where to put it so that I wouldn't lose it, I glanced at the open end plates --- one zip tie later:

Saw this. Thought it was a good idea. Went to look for the wrench thinking it was with the bag of goodies that came with the rotary tool. Nope. Found it 2 hours later in the Inventables tool bag that came with my Shapeoko. :lol: I have now zip tied the wrench to the end plate.
