A Portable Powered Engraving System

This is the Box O' Happiness

It's a complete air-powered hand engraving* system in a box. All I need is a place to sit (or stand).

Click into the frame-by-frame gallery to get all of the information on what's what. Basically, it's a Lindsay Classic AirGraver rigged to run off of 20oz CO2 tanks. The tank, regulator, and foot pedal store in the bottom of the box, along with a small vise, the vise attachments, a Lindsay Sharpening System (very slick), and a couple of other things.

A small magnifying visor, the AirGraver itself, and various other needful things live in the removable tray.

This toolbox ($10 at Wal-Mart) has two removable trays and one fixed box in the lid so I can store some stuff there.

*Yes, even though the graver is air driven it's still hand engraving - if all I do is turn it on it just sits there and buzzes. All the air power does it let me cut as if I have superhuman strength as it slices through steel as if it were soft silver.

UPDATE:
I finally got around to making better storage for my Lindsay Sharpening system. I've added pictures of the roll cases I made for the templates. I made a similar case for the four stones and a simple pouch (velcro closure) for the base (the plastic plate you work on). While I had things out I also made a roll case for gravers - just a bunch of little thin pockets.
