Question by Jamie S: I know I am going to be getting more tools and stuff for my workshop. I need to re-arrange my workshop?
so I can accommodate the stuff. My shop is mostly a woodworking shop with other tools for mechanical and electrical work. What is the best way to organize my shop so I can find the things I need when I need them? I hate digging through the stuff to hopefully find something I need.

Best answer:

Answer by Jerry Thunder
First I would make a space at hand for the tools you use the most. Then simple group like tools together in drawers or what not and go from there.

    It’s a 2-1/4″ machine dust port to 35mm hose adapter, May 2, 2012

    I purchased this adapter to connect my Fein Turbo II vacuum to the dust port on my Bosch 4100 table saw, which it does perfectly.

    You would think manufacturers/sellers of dust collection adapters like this would understand that potential buyers would like to KNOW the dimensions so they don’t have to GUESS whether it’ll fit their particular application or not, but they don’t. So, since I now own this adapter, I’ve taken the measurements and I’m providing them here so others don’t have to keep guessing about this adapter at least!

    large O.D. = 2-1/4″ = 57.15mm
    large I.D. = 2-3/64″ = 52mm
    small O.D. = 1-37/64″ = 40mm
    small I.D. = 1-3/8″ = 35mm

    This adapter does not fit anything that I could find. The outside diameter is exactly the same diameter as a standard shop vac hose. The small end outside diameter is the exact same diameter as the dust port of every Bosch tool that I own. In other words it won’t fit any Bosch tool without an additional adapter. Neither end will fit either over or inside of anything I have in my shop. This is a completely useless piece of plastic unless you also have other adapters or are using a household vacuum cleaner in your shop. Who does that?? Don’t waste your money.

    I have tools that I just use for woodworking and others I use for car and other stuff. I learned this by getting grease on a few woodworking projects. and had to get creative with the finish. In th wood shop I have pliers, screwdrivers, scrapers, hammers, a small set of wrenches, and saws. I hang them on the wall in my wood shop.
    The stuff for other work I keep in a big tool chest… (actually a converted medication cart check area hospitals and nursing homes they usually throw out the old ones every 5 to 10 years)
    If it is specific to a certain job set like electrical I keep the tools in a smaller portable box. For example my Kliens are in an electrical box and not with the general tools

    I just finished cleaning and sorting out my workshop.
    I’m a General Contractor so I got a LOT of different tools for different kinds of jobs, and LOTS of different parts..
    The first thing I did was to buy a big Craftsman roll-away tool cabinet.
    It’s actually three stacked on top of each other.
    Kind of expensive, even on sale, but worth it.
    Makes all your tools portable.
    Then I sorted out tools for each drawer.
    Screwdrivers; phillips on one side, slotted on the other; in one drawer.
    Wrenches; metric on one side, SAE on the other; in the next drawer…
    I have a drawer for electrical tools and meters, a drawer for plumbing, one for cutting tools, woodworking…
    The bigger drawers I saved for power tools, pipe wrenches, and hammers.
    I never knew I had so many hammers.
    Anyway, this emptied all my smaller toolboxes which I filled with parts; plumbing fittings in one, electrical parts in another…
    Then I labeled each one.
    My automotive tools I keep separate in a shed.
    I also installed pegboard on the walls to hang the longer tools like levels and pipe clamps…
    Lastly, I got some display bins that a hardware store was throwing out.
    These I filled with more parts for repairs; one for electrical, one for cabinetry… and labeled these too.
    You probably don’t have so many miscellaneous parts to deal with, but this might give you an idea of what you are trying to achieve.
    My big problem is making sure I put the tools I use back where they belong…
    Good luck.

    I have 9 file cabinets I got for $ 5 each at a government surplus place. Old file cabinets are great because they are cheap (if you go to the right place), they are usually made to hold a lot of weight, and there is a spot on the front of the drawer to label the contents.

    And they are metal, so you can stick magnets to them.

    One drawer for hammers, one for wrenches, one for screwdrivers, one for plumbing, one for electrical, etc.
