That does look cool...I wish I had your wallet though.

That gives me an idea: I think I'll use a 14 or 12ga "Z" bar with some deep slots as an alternative. (would still hold them the same way, just by the ridges in the chuck or between the tool and the hex on the threaded portion of the chuck/fitting).

Thanks for sharing

PS. Any ideas on how to attach a CAD drawing to this thread?

I just drill up through the cabinet and then used a US fine thread bolt. Not a perfect fit, but buy slightly cross threading them it worked like a lock bolt..Couplers are actually pipe threads. I also used lock type on them. I got the quick couplers from Harbor Freight, package of 5 for $7.99. The ones I got said industrial type, basically the same as meltons, "they make so many different version that you have to make sure that you always stay with same type. So basically the cost of the bolt and $1.60 per tool. Now I know when I am missing one.
Also another thing I was thinking about doing was to mount them up-right on top of the work bench at the back, when I run out of room under the cabinets. Now I just need more tools!

Great! Thanks-I really like your idea. Although I don't have the size of collection of air tools as you have!

Looks great! I hope that the bottom of that cabinet is strong, thats a lot of weight not counting what is inside the cabinet.

Wow, cool idea. If I had that many air tools I guess I would do that too. Maybe in the future.... Thanks for the idea!

They (H-F) make great tool holders, but they suck for using with a compressor. They leak air BIG TIME. I bought 14-15 of them when I did my shop. Every time I used one, they started leaking. Now its ARO's from here on out!

I will agree with you about about the leaking. I use the better ones on my hoses.

I have always been into cars for a hobby but what I do to pay some of the bills is produce videos and interactive training programs. I am lucky my wife is a CPA and make most of the money and try hard to spend most of the money
I use those cabinets to store reference catalogs and magazines. I over built the cabinets and lots of long sheet rock screws into the studs to hold them up. I built all of the lower cabinet not with shelves but with 300 lb limit drawers, that way it is easier to pull out things such as chop saws. The garage is 1390 sq. ft with a 2500 sq ft attached ( wifes) [house, I will get some detailed pics later.
