Nothing too special about this one.

Magnetic strip affixed to a cleat + backer board for the larger files and rasps.

For the smaller files, dental tools, and otherwise tiny stuff, I made a custom magnetic hanger. I had a slew of very tiny neodymium magnets (1/8” thick x 1/8” diameter. I took a backer board and drilled 1/8” holes, 1/8” deep.

I placed the magnets inside the holes (some took some convincing with a hammer which made the others bounce out so it’s a kind of balancing act). Then, instead of meticulously affixing each one in place with CA glue, I simply put a piece of packing tape across the whole shebang. Works a charm!

Great additions to the shop. I hardly ever get around to shop improvement projects…....

Thanks! I’ve been doing only shop improvement projects for the last few months. I’m jumping back into woodworking after taking a 2-3 year hiatus. I completely cleaned, renovated with a new wall, and organized whatever I could before starting up again. The biggest difference so far is having as many “main” tools/machines connected to power at all times. It’s soo different being able to move from one operation to the next without having to bend down to swap extension cords. I’m almost done with the shop projects though—and it’s a good thing because I’m anxious to start building some furniture or otherwise ‘useful to others’ projects.
