nrChris mentioned these in our most recent HoN Roundup and I have to admit that I’ve been wondering about them myself. I see more and more mention of using magnetic strips to store tools either permanently or temporarily while you’re working with them. Sometimes these are designed to mount to the wall, and sometimes they simply attach to the side of a rolling tool box.
The one pictured comes from Snap-on and sells for around $30, but there are a zillion different options out there.
Personally, I can’t imagine using these for full-time storage, though they might be handy to keep a couple of wrenches out for a particular project. Even then I’m not really sure it’s the best way to go.
What do you Toolmongers think? Do you use these or something like them, and if so, whatd’ya thik of ’em? Let us know in comments.
