These 3D printed “combs” are used in conjunction with the packout accessory case that comes with the small Packout toolbox. You can also purchase a set of bins that comes with this organizer from ACME Tool.
These combs allow you to store your reciprocating saw blades neatly separated to protect the blades and so you can see what blades you have at a glance.
The small middle compartment can be used to store 3″ reciprocating blades while the large compartment can store 6″, 9″ or 12″ blades. The 6″ blades can be stored back to back filling an entire “slot.”
I spaced the blade holders so that with the lid closed, the blades should stay put relatively well.
I’ve provided the two files you need to replicate the holder I have pictured. I’ve also provided the openSCAD model that you can modify if you want to modify the holders or even make new holders for different cases.
Printer: Prusa i3 MK3
Material: Inland PET-G
Resolution: 0.3mm with a 0.4mm nozzle
Wall Lines/Perimeters: 3
Infill: 20% Gyroid. The higher infill percentage the stronger the part.
To make the reciprocating blade holder the way it is pictured you need to print one of the “Organizer Middle” and three of the “Organizer Ends.”
I used 3/4″ 3M VHB tape to adhere the holders to the bottom of the Packout accessory case.
To place the holders in the right place, line up the “Organizer Middle” holder in the large compartment and the “Organizer Ends” holder in the middle small compartment with the round sprue in the middle of the case.
The remaining two “Organizer Ends” holders rest up against the notch in the large compartment.
