Default Anyone hang their tools on pegboard?

I am thinking of doing this to make it easier to get to some of my tools. My tool box is so overcrowded I thought I may do this with the most commonly used ones such as wrenches. What do you guys and girls think?

I like pegboard for anything that hangs easy, it is about he cheapest form of storage.

Default Re: Anyone hang there tools on pegboard?

I use it for wrenches, screwdrivers, nut drivers, power tools, rulers, levels, hammers, and clamps. I'm generally happy with it. I have every craftsman RP wrench, 10 or so cordless tools, roughly 10 screwdrivers, 12 nut drivers, about 10 clamps, about 10 hammers, a hacksaw, grease gun bench brush and a few other odds and ends on a 4by8 piece of pegboard.

Im thinking about trying to integrate a way to hang all my sockets (roughly 400) but am not sold on how to do it yet along with ratchets and extensions.

I have two full stacks of craftsman 26" wide boxes side by side that are both full, and I don't want to spend big money on more professional boxes, so hanging is a way of optimizing space.

i have a few things hanging from a pegboard above the workbench in my reloading room.

saws, hammers, prybars, ect that get used in the house.

i hate pegboard
only reason i use it because it was there when i bought the house.

I hate pegboard. Wall hanging doesn't bother me for things like saws, screwdrivers, files, chisels, adjustable wrenches, and hammers, but everything else has a place in my tool boxes. It takes a lot more work for tools to walk off when they reside in a lockable tool box that is locked nightly.

I use it for anything I can put on it. Easy to see where things are. You can find alot of different pieces and kits on Amazon. All are pretty cheap, I got a kit for 10-15 bucks.

No space heh? Here's the solution to that problem. I made it with a welder, a metal brake for the top shelf and quality casters.

Hmmm, Nope; for that amount of floor space, I'd rather have another roller with drawers.
