    No weld storage rack

    Made this to hold Harbor freight storage cases. These were pretty much a disaster of cases piled on top of each other. Used 1"x12" pine for the sides. 1.25x1.25x1/8" aluminum angle for slides, fastened with #8x3/4" stainless steel truss head screws. Used some 3/8" plywood for the back.

    Painted it with rust-oleum charcoal gray. It holds 18 of the 2" high cases and 4 of the 4" high cases, which I need 2 more. Roughly 3'x 3'.Name:  IMG_20210221_181139993.jpg

    That definitely looks like it organizes those cases good I like it!!!



    Looks like more and more welding people are going to switch to wood with the price of steel going up daily!!!!

    This was just leftover stuff I had laying around. Obviously the cases are the most expensive part, but yeah probably 25$ or so worth of wood. I believe I used about 35-40' of aluminum angle .

    There not the most robust. I think they will hold up ok for my uses, bouncing around in a truck, not so much.

    Mine broke just trying to close the latch!!! had a similar thing happen to one of the HF 10 dollar black n yellow tool boxes... broke the plastic lip right under the latch first time I tried to latch it.... so I picked one of the HD 10 dollar orange homer boxes up basically the same size - but has a regular steel loop cam type latch!! works every time

    mine isn't as professionally built as yours, if fact it's built at two different times. I had to have a labels on boxes, How many boxes do you pull out before you find what you are looking for ???

    Wow jniolon! How often does the maid come by?
    That’s a beautiful shop but mine never looks so clean. I’m jealous. So well planned and organized.

    What’s in those card catalogs? Looks like a good idea.


    MJD - good project as usual. Looks a lot handier than mine. I keep stacks of 4 on a shelf but always need the bolts in the bottom one. I may try your idea.

    I enjoy seeing others’ shops. Always good ideas and projects.

    Re: No weld storage rack

    The plan is to purchase a label maker or at least a silver sharpie to label them. As of now there are no misc. ones. I need to label them like" SHCS 8-32 _ 5/16x 18" or " 3/8x16_ 5/8x 11". So in that instance I can narrow it down to which box. Before was a chore just getting to the box I needed.

    I have similar cabinet as jniolon under my workbench, which is another good storage option. One of my next things to make is a rack to hold tig filler rod tubes.

    several years ago when I started my truck project I wanted to increase my shop coverage on my insurance by several thousand dollars to cover truck in progress and parts, etc. My insurance man came out and was overwhelmed. He suggested I make pictures for claim purposes should I ever need them... I did a whole group on just tools and this one on shop general pics... gave them to him on a flash drive... these show come more of above...

    Re: No weld storage rack

    I did have to weld the bases on my bolt bins. Bending over looking for sh*t gets old, when yer gettin' old


    SAE UNC below. Stainless steel UNC in gray bins.






    SAE UNF below



    Miscellaneous and metric fine and coarse thread. I might get it organized before I die. Maybe not.....

    I have an old Ideal brand one. I'm far from really organized though. Pole barn spikes are a good alternative, plenty of length to really make sure you have to remove at least 20 to get at the one you need.

    Well it's nice to see you've moved on from giving me grief about the Ranger.....

    And FYI not all the hose clamps are on a rack.

    I think you'd need a card catalogue when you have zillions of bins and parts like that.
