    Splash Guard Tools Rack

    Hi everyone.

    Unfortunately I don’t have much space in my workshop and this is the main reason why I must use every possible spot for storing my tools.

    Made tools rack from aluminum angle bar 50 x 50 x 5 mm and mounted it on splash guard with two 6mm bolts. Length of tools rack is 350 mm. The holes were drilled with 12 mm center drill and afterwards milled with 13/16” end mill. As my next bigger end mill is 1”, I had to use boring head and made final holes diameter of 23.5 mm. So, all these MT3 holders and wrenches are no longer laying around on chip tray, shelves or elsewhere. It is very simple to make and very useful to have at most convenient place – right upper corner of splash guard.

    Best regards.

    Good on you for placing them on the far RIGHT end of the backsplash so you won't be tempted to reach across rotating workpieces to retrieve a tool.
