    Over head ceiling storage for drill rod, all thread, dowels,etc

    This one has been in the shop since I moved in. Great way to store long rods, angle iron,dowels,broom handles, etc.
    It is made in 3 sections with each one bolted to it's own truss. Since 3 trusses carry the load I don't worry about
    the ceiling falling!

    Cheers, JR

    JR,

    Your ceiling storage for metal/wood stock looks very useful. Using 3 trusses to carry the load should take the worry out about having the heavy storage unit being overhead and provides a great view of what stock is available.

    Thank you for the idea and the clear photo.
    Regards, Paul

    Thanks Paul,
    One of the best aspects of that rack is the fact that you can see at a glance
    what stock is there and what you might need to order for that next project.

    Cheers, JR
