October 15, 2015


This is the fourth tip in a series of five to help select the correct tool board. Tip #4 Hooks

Believe it or not the hooks you select make a big difference. There are a variety of sizes and styles of hooks out there. Select the ones that fit your tools the best.

Bins and shelves can hold parts and other items. These accessories make it convenient to have these items at point of use.Tool_Board_Hooks_SS
