Default Musclechuck hex key storage

I replaced the wobbly MLCS collet extension on my table mounted PC 75182 with the appropriate Musclechuck and runout and vibration noise are substantially reduced. Bit changes above the table are very easy and fast when I can find the 4mm hex key so I decided to give the key a parking place in a cleat on the inside of the top left (tool) drawer of my table. A 3/16" groove and a 3/16" bore accept the long and short legs of the key and a 3/4" bored hole below the groove provides a finger hold. A little chisel work in the groove made room for the inside radius of the key so it fits flat in the groove. Hope this is of some value to members who spend a lot of time looking for their Musclechuck key.

A nice, simple solution and good idea. Thanks.
