Tool pallets are traditionally used in the casehggage industry for organizing tools in attache tool kits. Conventionally, these pallets have been manufactured by covering a tool board with vinyl and sewing on pockets. This is an extremely expensive manufacturing process which yields generic pallets. Custom pocket-layout designs are expensive because once a manufacturer has tooled up, it is expensive to change.
