Default New Drill/Driver and Impact, holding and charging station

Well, I use to keep my drill/drivers and impact in the top section of my toolbox, but I've grown out of that spot. So I moved them to the wall, above where I have my charging station. All my chargers plugs are color coded, so I know what charger needs to be plug in for what tool. And all the extra length of cords are hidden in a compartment under the chargers. Also have some bits, extensions and what nots, organized on the columns of the shelf.

Good job Lee . I stayed with one brand of drills/impacts so I only have to deal with one charger .
MT.Stringer started this organization thing for drills etc , so I followed suit and built one of my own design .
Never been happier


I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Yes Lee, that looks good. I have just two chargers but I probably should find a better area for them.

Thanks . It was a good experiance for me to , as I learned how to make drawers with a little guidance from the fellows here . I haven't put the faces on in this pic yet .



Above and below the drills and air guns are mdf spacers which are air nailed in and can be pried out and new ones cut if you want to change spacing between tools . Liked it better than my first attempt where I dadoed the slots and later discovered I wanted differant spacing .
Thought I was pretty clever lol

Cool, Rick. Are the pieces that go between the MDF spacers fastened or do they just slide in the slots.

Where's all the sawdust?????

Thumbs up Coloured Tapes

I like the idea of the coloured tapes.

Did you consider placing matching coloured tapes on the chargers / appliances? So the Dewalt 12V Nicad would have a piece of yellow tape on it, matching the yellow tape next to the plug. So you look at the appliance and know which plug belongs to it. Might be faster than looking up the chart every time.

Just my penny's worth.

When my time comes, I want to die like my grandfather did - quietly, and in his sleep - not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.
