Greetings to all fans of homemade products and site visitors. The homemade product, which I will describe today, is especially useful for those who have a wide range of cordless drills and screwdrivers in the workshop, or if you have several batteries for one tool. The design is not difficult to manufacture and does not take up much space in the workshop on a workbench or rack. To make it, you will need trimming boards, which almost everyone always has in the workshop. The author also equipped this stand with a charger, fixing it on the sidewall. This will allow you to charge the battery without wasting time looking for charging, which is also very convenient. At the top of the platform (next to the charging station), the author places discharged batteries, and below the charged ones. It turns out like a conveyor. During work, the author takes a charged battery, the rest move down, as soon as the charge ends, he sets the battery in charge and takes the next one. While it is discharged, the previous one will be charged, he will install it on the stand from above and so on in a circle. And so let's get started.
Before manufacturing, the author prepared a design drawing. The author decided to make the stand in the form of a wedge. The slope angle is approximately 67 degrees. From a pine board 14 mm thick, the author cut out two triangular-shaped sidewalls. It is necessary to fix the platform between them. The author selected its width based on the size of the batteries, plus an allowance of several millimeters so that the batteries move freely along it. For the construction of the site, the author also used a pine board of a suitable width. From the prepared parts, the author assembled the structure with clamps, without using self-tapping screws, in order to see how everything will look in the final form. Please note that the author lowered the platform on which the batteries will be laid out just below the sides of the sides so that the sides are formed, they will not allow the batteries to fall off the stand.
Using a pencil and a measuring tool, the author marked out the lower part of the platform and cut off its lower end to the desired angle with a hand saw. As I wrote earlier, it is about 67 degrees. At this stage, the author has performed only cropping, he has not yet connected the details.
Step 3 .
After fitting the bottom, the author went to fit the top. Having raised the board to the desired height, the author again fixed the parts with a clamp, and using the same hand saw cut off the excess (protruding) part of the board (platform). When everything was ready, the author assembled the stand with glue and small nails (you can use self-tapping screws). At the same stage, the author attached a small side to the bottom of the platform so that the batteries would not slide off the platform.
At this stage, the author cut the end board to the desired angle in order to give the stand an aesthetic look, but this way the board height decreased. The author decided that such a side would not be enough to prevent the batteries from falling out, and he increased it by gluing a wooden plank of the required size from the inside.
At the final stage, the author put all his batteries in a ready-made stand and attached a charging base to the sidewall. The author made this stand specifically for his workbench, the place for mounting the charging was also chosen based on the location of the structure on the workbench.
You can (during manufacturing) customize the structure for yourself, based on where it will stand and how much it will store the batteries. The angle and position of the charging are also not difficult to change. In general, if you like the idea, put the class and take notes. Thank you all for your attention and see you again at Samodelkin's!
