A new low??… What peg board….
What about those magnetic ones?Posted 4 years ago
I’ll get a few of them once I’ve got my garage sorted.
youll get a much more useful tool board out of DIYing.
the most ergonomic boards ive worked with have been in shops where the board has been DIY’d
the sealey pegboard isnt expensive though – how big are you planning on making it ? we had a whole shops tools on an 8ft by 8ft section of wall
machine mart do a nice workbench with pegboard upright that could be good.
all i used was some of the magnetic strips – i just have a set of Tbars and a set of screw drivers on the wall though – everything else lives in the rollcabPosted 4 years ago
knowif I DIY’ed it, I’d lay it out, think it was perfect…. and then want to change it again a few weeks later. My tool collection seems to evolve fairly rapidly, benefiting from a Father with a Snap-On and Beta tool account, and an eye for a ‘bargain’ (I didn’t need a second vice, or a bench grinder, but they appeared last weekend… 😉 ) Having the option to unclip and move the hangers appeals.
Wall space is little limited – could probably usefully panel 4′ x 3′ and hopefully a little less than that. It’s also got to fit around the existing shelving and the bench itself, which is bespoke from 2″ SHS to fit in the (bloody awkward) space.
Point taken about the mag-strips though – that could be the best option for the everyday stuff, combined with a a small cabinet for the rest, as you suggest.Posted 4 years ago
For too long I’ve struggled with a small toolbox cluttered with all manner of detritus in additional to tools. I’d like to add peg board to the man-cave to hold all the regularly used tools. Having done a limited amount of research, I quite like the Sealey board/hook/accessory system….. but I suspect I could be looking at North of £200 all-in to do what I want, which seems a little steep for an idle pipedream.
Are there any cheaper systems out there of similar flexibility and range of accessories, but without the price-tag or workshop quality toughness? Trying to avoid DIY-ing something if poss…. Moon-on-a-stick? 😉
