Nothing super fancy but something I wanted share that I made to make my life easier. I do a lot of work here, there and a little of every where and I got tired of running back and forth and in and out of the shop so i made this so i can take it in and out of the shop through the mud or anywhere i need to go. It's very stabil and has just about everything i need on it. so I took one of the harbor freight wagons and made a frame from of 2x4's with some peg board. drilled some holes here and there. I'll get more pictures when i have a chance.

Cool idea but I'd be afraid of wrench's falling off.

Looks like a good idea to make your tools portable. 

 

If you find the wrenches are falling off the peg board you could also consider getting a small new (or used) top of a regular tool box set and mounting it top of the wagon.  Could make a spacer so that you have a shelf area under the tool box for storing a roll of shop towels and a small container of hand cleaner - just have to be careful you don't get things too high and make things top heavy. Just a couple of alternative suggestions.

Good idea & saves some leg wear. I have a cart inside the shop that I move around working on various projects. Keep us updated on your ideas.

Good idea. One way to keep wrenches from falling off the pegboard is to angle the pegboard. Have the bottom of the pegboard on one side of the wagon then slant it back to supports on the other side. Doing this would also add an enclosed space in the wagon under the pegboard.

i havent forgot more pics guys really busy weekend. as for stuff falling off not a problem I bent each of the pegs up a tad , i also mirrored the same thing on the other side. one side is standard and the other metric. I did it that way for balance. I  rocked this thing side to side to test stability and make sure nothing would fall off. when i take it from the shop to outside not a problem.  Now i will admit it is noisy but thats ok in my book.

Had to throw a pic of the Wheel horse on there as well, all original from what i can tell. I know it's nothing fancy but I like mowing grass with it lol. I could use other tractors for mowing but I like this one the best. It turns on a dime, fit a lot of places a bigger decks won't, pretty much a riding push mower lol

why do most repairs require every tool we own layed out on floor to complete the task? Cart does save steps. I incorporated torches into welding cart today and made a little more room in garage.
