    The Ms. watched this. She can't carry a 6" vise and swivel base from tooling shelves to mill. Fact is, I don't like to either.
    We see 'Caddy' and think some kind of vise mount, hopefully adjacent to machine - not 25 minutes of "cut a pocket in aluminum plate to keep small tools in". That took around 7 seconds along with a bite of sandwich!.
    Yikes!

    Couldn't agree more; 26 minutes of distilled boredom. Who is going to sacrifice a big chunk of aluminum for something like that? Wood would be a better choice of material anyway, especially so if one is going to drop precision tools into this "caddy".

    Furthermore, the pocket doesn't look big enough to accept the ubiquitous 6" digital caliper.

    It's good he didn't decide to 3D print it and video every second of an 8 hour deposit of ooze.
