Blue Steel Co., Inc. SH10292M / Pelican 1470 Case

It’s been said you have to have the right tool for the job, we may own the right tool but can’t find it when we need it.  That is when tool management comes into play.

This tool case has 11 tools and the dies and mandrel must be used as a set.

You can see the “Box of tools” method of storage here.

Unorganized box of tools before 5S process

Often you find you have 2 of these, none of those and damaged or extras of tools that don’t belong in the box at all.

Once we determine what is needed to complete the work we also discuss storage and location space needed.

We will print a legend to identify the tools and proper storage location.  The only tools that belong in this area will have a place in the box.

The completed storage case is here.
