                • I started cleaning up a lot of old drills I received when I bought another camelback drill press I found a product made for ultrasonic cleaners that is just great... A load of drills look almost new in two hours... take a look

                    • I did very little, and as the North Somerset area of the UK is tier 3 for CO19, the museum is not re opening next Wednesday, so I will be twiddling my thumbs for the forseeable future.

                        We have someone giving a "stern warning" about oak toolboxes. (We get a lot of "stern warnings" here).

                        We ALSO have a hundred plus years of history with oak toolboxes. If oak toolboxes were going to rust and ruin tools, there would have been an abandonment of oak and a run to other woods to avoid this issue. We'd all know about it, and Gertstner would have a section of their site explaining why they will not offer an oak toolbox. But there is no such, and oak is still offered.

                        Well, toolboxes HAVE changed from oak, but also from every other wood as well, because wood is expensive and metal, or plastic (ugh), is cheap. Nobody suggests (aside from one person here) that storing tools in an oak box is going to ruin them. In fact, the most fancy and expensive toolbox you can buy commercially, offers oak as a standard choice. And that company (Gerstner) has the longest history of making toolboxes of any company still in the business.

                        So, who you gonna trust? You gonna believe "Mr Stern Warning"? Or you gonna go with 100 plus years of history and the oldest company in the wood toolbox business?

                        All that said, if your box allows the tools to rest on unfinished oak, there could be an issue. Felt cures that issue with oak, or any other wood, the use of felt is not just for looks. And unfinished wood becomes grimy and ugly looking in short order. So finish the wood, and use felt on the surfaces that the tools rest on. Done.
                        Where's Evan when we need him to over explain this. I've never had a problem with oak rusting anything any more than any other wood.

                        Also, the OP was about a box being built for a level. You are the one who brought up tool boxes.
