Had a bolt play hide and seek with me the other nite.
It has spawned a cleaning like hasn't been seen for several years.
Not ready to take wide angle yet, but here is one job off the list.
We took the better ones and hung them up. Left spots for missing or haven't bought yet.

Hanging the tool is a great idea! You'll be posting a wide angle picture before you know it. :thumbs: :D

I like to hang my wrenches when I am working on a something up on the operating table.  Have a magnetic strip on the steel storage box where all the bigger stuff is stored.  An old stool with a piece of plywood screwed on top makes a place for the other items.  About 10 years ago I bought on of HF big tool boxes, top and bottom and have never been sorry.  Plenty of storage, drawers work nice, everything has a place and can tell right off if something is missing.

   Good luck with that !!!!!  I have been cleaning and organizing my garage for the last 20 years it seems.  I get it to a reasonable point then start into something and before I know it-----right back into chaos!!!!!!

The other week I was going to do the fall cleanup and organizing. Then the tractor wouldn't start and I spent the day wrenching. And it's still a mess...

Is it wrong to cheer for the garage mess in this case?

Yes Cat, that is wrong.  Wrong because you already know the garage mess will win....it always does!  At least root for the underdog!

It will eventually win, don't worry.
I'm hoping for a DMZ of sorts that requires less high stepping and garage shuffling to get thru.

Nope, cause if I can't find it. The prick helping himself to the shed contents can't either. Bad part, when I can't find something, I don't know if I have been hit again or did I misplace it. So far it's only things in place on their hook that disappeared.

I totally understand the "high stepping" thing.  Still doing it in the old shop, but trying my best to keep the new shop half straight.  An endless battle, but worth the fight.  Tripping these days isn't fun, but come to think of it, it never was!  I never was a fan of hanging tools, but never had a smooth enough floor till now to roll a toolbox easily to the work.

  Dad still comes to the shop now & then, so I have to keep the floor clear as possible.

It was getting to the point of ridiculous. I was doing the Peter Panda Dance every time I wanted to walk thru. Mom can't go in there for fear of tripping and someone is going to get hurt.

Time for some change.
