Looks good, Mike. I've thought about adding photos to the folders but just haven't started that yet. After seeing yours I may start.

The reason mine start with 001 is because if you get to 10 they won't be in order if sorted by name. 01 would work, as well, unless you're going to have more than 99 operations (doubtful).

I hope I don't have a project that has 99 tool changes! I might start using the longer form if I ever get the chance to get back on my own files.

I started including pictures of the cut gcode previews along with customer files so they could look at how a file should look and be able to add extra clamps if needed. On some of their pictures, I edit and show safe places for clamps. I ask some of them if they would like a file to cut first to show the safe areas but have always been told no, they did not need one or they did not want to do another tool change. I even said I could just use the starting tool and make a shallow plunge at a few safe spots but they don't want that either.

I'm using that method to locate (Safe Spaces) for pin nails on this project. I can't believe I used that term but it works great!!

I do that, as well, Joe. Many times in certain projects I'll clamp from the outside and use the CNC to drill safe places to place screws in the interior. Then I'll remove the outside clamps and cut the outer profile. Those usually end up being file 001 -
