Organized wrenches

Postby Fall_of_Olympus » Mon Dec 01, 2014 10:51 pm

Last year I got my hands on a pile of wrenches from a mechanic shop that closed down. Basically an estate sale type deal. Being that I do mostly woodworking, they've been sitting since then. I only grabbed them because of the tool box. Well now I finally have a need for a wrench set lol.
I just spent the last two hours separating out all the Craftsman stuff from the random, unnamed ones and then sorting out all the multiples.

It's not a complete set but I feel like I wont come across a size I don't have on the truck. I also feel like I won't be using a lot of the metric wrenches on this project lol. Anyhow...WRENCHES!

I'm a big fan of these socket rails:

Because I can take a whole set of sockets with me to the car/truck in one hand.

I'm also trying out these for organizing my wrenches:

If they don't work out, I only spent a few dollars. :)

Cheers,

I have a set of those wrenches in those wrench holders. The wrenches came with the holder from sears. They stay in the holder and dont fall out. I also keep my sockets on rails. The rest of my wrenches r in a drawer. I have to kind of sort through them. I am thinking the pegboard on the wall may be the correst way to go for my wrenches.
