Made an air tool rack- pic

I never could find an air chuck when I needed it. I made this rack to keep all the air tools together. Its just angle iron with holes drilled in it. I took a male and a female quick disconnect and threaded them together through the angle iron. This gives two holders at every hole. Its simple but very very handy.

I can't say I thought of the quick disconnect on my own. If you go to Sears or anywhere else that sells tools, thats how they have them displayed.

I used a 2x2 metal square behind the angle iron. The 2x2 is screwed to the wall, the angle is welded to the 2x2. The top of the 2x2 is cut at an angle so I could put a srew through just the back part.

Did you hit up Harbor Freight for the quick disconnects? Otherwise, i can see this one spendy project...

I like Wayne's design, it secures them much better than just being slid on, and some air tools are pretty pricey..

I saw it today, and it looked built, but it also looked custom.. I meant to ask about it, Very nice!
