Okay, now this is just too cool for words, including having to open it up to
change range.  *Adding to the list of cool things to make*

Several such boxes are currently being used with my watchmaker's and Clisby
lathes but I'm considering repurposing them later once I can dedicate a
[wooden] tool box or two to them.  The Unimat already has its own box
although I still have to put dividers & shelves in it arranged so I can
still get out the milling head and column.  

Wood has always been a material of choice but then I started with
breadboards so that may be why.  :-)
