Let's Get Started
To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.
Start this project by simply sourcing the old toolbox. We found ours at a thrift shop, but you can also clean one up you have lying around the house.
Remove the paint on the toolbox with the Dremel Multi-Max™ and sanding pads. Use the coarsest grit sanding pad, the 80 grit, to remove the first layer of paint, followed by the 120 to remove any primer and paint strokes. Tip: Sand in a straight line for a cleaner look.
Clean up the rest of the toolbox by sanding off the final bits of paint by hand with the 240 grit sanding pad.
Lastly, remove the rust from any metal hinges with the Dremel rotary tool and Dremel accessory.
