This is on ongoing project to come up with a tool rack which is mobile so that I can move it around my work area to wherever it is needed. At this point I'm thinking about a few "modifications".
- It will have to have wheels because I want it as mobile as possible
- The tubes for the hammers will be much shorter to decrease the overall weight of the rack and keep costs down
- The "punch" rack will probably be PVC tubing attached to the rack frame via pop-rivets with caps on the bottom to keep the punches from falling through and will probably be mounted on the side opposite the tong rack
- The tong rack frame will be some T-channel because I have a bunch in the garage. I'll probably use rod because I have it too!
Well, my good intentions to make my own fabulous tool rack from the plans above have taken a detour. While I was cruising the Internet I came across this.
It is an expandable tool rack from Ken's Custom Iron. I bought just the two support pieces and will pick up the cross bars from my friendly IMS store. I just need to figure out how wide I want it. I may end up getting more pairs because I expect I'll want two racks for my tool shed and another one for holding the tools I'm going to need for a given project near the anvil/forge area (on wheels).
Gee Mom, look what else I've found!
