My cordless tools were just getting shelved and dropped.. So I collected several Ideas from here and Shop Notes and made this… I will be putting a bed liner paint on this just to give it a rugged look..

Nice. I learned from somewhere to use a weekly timer to have the chargers only come on once a week to keep the batteries topped off, but not wasting electricty the rest of the time. I use an outdoor timer, that comes on when it gets dark for one hour. When I leave the shop, everything charges up for the next time I return to the shop. It’s not perfect, but what is. The timer is only used for Christmas lights otherwise.
