The JL Smith Tool Trough is intended to be filled with whole coffee beans in order to support tools in an upright position, allowing for easy storage and retrieval.
The Tool Trough can be used in both bench-top and wall-hanging configurations.
- If the Tool Trough will be hung on a wall, remove the keyhole plugs before filling with coffee.
- To hang on a wall, first tap the keyhole plugs out from the outside of the box using a hammer and a chisel, or similar tool. Keyhole plugs may be replaced by reinserting them from the inside, then applying a thin layer of wood glue to the inside of the box in a small circle around the plug.
