Workshop Organization ~ Bench Top Chisel & Punch Rack ~ by Old Sneelock'...

A video from the Old Sneelock’s Workshop Archives. As you can see the video is from when the star of the show had a bit more color in his hair and a bit more hair. This video surfaced as a result of the computer crash. I was forced to go back through all kinds of files trying to recover what had gotten wiped out.
In a dusty file on the backup drive this video surfaced.
It’s not a great rack but it has been very serviceable in the year since the video was taken. By putting a wider base on the rack I was able to have them on the bench without tipping over and dropping tools everywhere

Workshop Organization ~ Pt 8 ~ Plumb Hatchet Hanger

This little hand axe is very nice for rough work in the shop. The only problem I had with it was having it handy without being dangerous.

Workshop Organization ~ Pt 7 ~ Carpenter Hatchet Hanger ~ by Old Sneeloc...

Having a secure spot to store this tool means it will be less likely to be damaged or damage me. It also puts it in easy reach so I can use it easily. It will be much more effective now.

or other widget that was in the plans you purchased on line? Step out of the
box into a world of your own making. Simple ideas are the basis of every
complex project, and they can be riveting.

Workshop Organization ~ Pt 5 ~ OS Inc. Goes Hi Tech ~ by Old Sneelock's ...

It’s hard to buy presents for someone who wants junk. What junk should you get? Has he got one already. (Not really a problem.) Where can you find the right kind of junk?
Better to buy a new item and be sure it’s nothing he has already. Laser level. That’s the ticket.
