The rectangular tool tray is one of those best selling trays in tool chests. The curved, alternate pulling, hydraulic presses give this instrument tray set an extremely attractive and unique look. Because most home hand tools are fairly flat, however, they are often more difficult to track down and find because most hand tools are quite flat. The tool tray is particularly helpful for people who enjoy working on big woodworking or metalwork jobs where finding and digging tools out can be time consuming. Because of their flat surfaces, they also make it easier to remove tool bits that can get stuck on walls or other areas in the work place, preventing them from causing additional damage.
Tool trays also come in different materials, with a few being made of plastic and some metal, although plastic ones are somewhat less common. The plastic ones are usually lighter than metal ones and are better for home usenonetheless, as they’re lighter, they tend to warp when exposed to humidity and temperature changes. Tool tray bottoms, or flanges, on the other hand, are made of metal alloys and are much sturdier than plastic. Metal bottoms are typically sold together with the trays, and in some cases, they are sold individually.
Tool trays generally have a conventional or a tapered hole layout, with most tool chests having four recessed slots that fit into regular metallic instrument tray bottoms, while supplying a pit for hand gear to slip into. Some tool chests may also incorporate a fifth slot, also called a”ring sight”, which fits over the surface of the opening of the tray, but can also be used to support a pliers, such as the electrician’s”ring traction”. Tool trays can be purchased with or without built-in rubber seals, and rubber seals may be used later, should you want them. The rubber seals will keep dust and dirt from settling inside the tool tray, which is fantastic to help prevent damage to your hands tools.
