He Used Pegboard To Make A Tool Board
Bob Moty, Crystal Lake, Ill.: "I used 1/4-in. pegboard to make a tool board for use at home. To make box/open end wrench holders I cut off the heads on some 1/4 by 2-in. bolts, then bent 1/4 in. of the end of each bolt at a 90 degree angle and used whiz nuts' at the front and rear. Nuts and flat washers would also work. To make socket holders, I cut off 1/4 - 3/8-in. and 1/2-in. bolts and rounded the ends, then drilled holes in lengths of 1 1/4 by 1 1/4 by 1/8-in. thick angle iron and welded in the bolts. I like this system because all my tools are arranged by size and are always in full view.
