Tool Chest Cover?

Hello,

New to this forum, I can see that you guys are very enthusiastic about your tools and garages, much like I am.

I just bought a new 26.5" Tool Chest from Costco, it isn't the greatest, but since it sits in a shop that is used for wood working, I would like to protect it from the saw dust that inevitably lands over everything. I think the dust will gum up the drawer slides.

I did a quick google search and it has come up with nothing...

Do they exist? I know I've seen them at some point.

There should be a manufacture tag or nameplate on the toolbox somewhere.

I bought a Hammerhead SS toolbox from Costco several years ago and ordered a cover from their website.
http://www.hammerheadsteel.com/

Pretty much any cover from a similar dimensioned toolbox would work also.

If nothing is available from the manufacture, you could go to an upholstery shop and have one made.

Or as a lot of us do, have the wife stitch up a cover or in my case, ask my son to do it. He owned and lived on a sailboat in his early years and invested in a used industrial sewing machine to defray the cost of repairing sails, replacing sail covers and above and below deck upholstery. He will start on some covers for our new garage/work shop as soon as he is finished organizing his side. Choosing the right material is important since you are wanting to keep the dust out, but unless you have a heated and airconditioned shop, you want the material to "breath" moisture out.

Look at grill covers, portable generator covers etc because these could well be adapted to your needs.

Thanks for the replies.

Looks like I will be going with custom made. Everything u can buy is expensive and needs to be adapted anyways.

I have my top and bottom separate, so I will be making two and I will put some kind of access flap so that I don't have to take it right off if I want to get the drawers open.

I will post pictures and a how to when done.
