After years of perfecting our gear we also grew a little tired of passing around our kit to the newbies or being constantly asked for something else while the rest of us are resting or eating supper. Our leadership decided to pitch in to build and supply a company cleaning kit that would be supervised by our unofficial ordinance private.
I constructed the box out of 3/4 pine, box jointed, tongue/grooved, rabbits and dadoes. There are no fasteners holding this box together. Hardware includes blacksmithed handles, some mortised hinges, and a chain for the lid. I ended up finishing the inside with a brush on poly so it could handle some abuse or spillage. You can learn more about this box construction in one of our YouTube videos.
One side of the box contains three wooden trays with identical supplies. The other side which is open is for refills and specialty tools as needed. Several of us pitched in stocking it up and then we'll be charging just a dollar a day for our recruits to use it. We encourage our recruits to have their own kit whether they have a Sharps yet or not but still want to maintain high standards of cleaning and maintenance for those not quite there yet.
