    Tool Storage

    Home mechanics, what are the best ways to store tools? I've got a workbench in the garage with a lower shelf and some plastic trays right now, I want to do better than this. Pictures are helpful.

    This is my system. The funny thing is I have a lot of shelf space and the peg board that holds a lot of tools, I'm just too lazy to put anything away.

    +1 on the peg board or a piece of plywood bolted to the wall behind the workbench and nails to hand the tools on.

    The goal is to have them immediately accessible and within easy reach. I have pegboard and a roll-away toolbox in my basement shop, but I have a my most commonly used tools and supplies for bikes in a two-drawer toolbox which I can keep near the bikes in the garage or take with me as needed.

    Have a work bench with a vise.

    Use a peg board to hold your frequently-needed tools.

    Get a decent size tool box(es) to hold the rest of the tools.
