    Hey Guys,

    Just got into the Milwaukee Packout System

    Thought it would be good to create a thread where we can share our tool collections/workshops etc and tool storage solutions

    Currently using Ryobi power tools - will share a photo when I can collect them all in one place

    Mine is generally all on racks in the garage, it's reasonably organised into sections.

    Mine - ended up building a free standing workshop as I had too many things in buckets / boxes. These are early photos, but you get the idea..

    That's disturbingly neat (and very nice). Like the use of space between the studs for storage.

    Don't have any pics of mine not to mention it's a complete mess (something that's on the schedule for this year). My hand tools are mostly in a Packout stack (I'll pick up the new drawers when they arrive) as I don't have a a garage so this makes it easier when I'm working on a car as I can just wheel everything around to the carport. Power tools are either in a cabinet or the box they came in.

    Thanks but its not neat anymore (see updated photo).. Got a number of construction and 3d print projects going on, not to mention built a box for the 3d printer (so I can print through winter), so its a complete mess now. As for the studs, I wanted to maximise the use of the space and have as much visible as possible - all of this used to sit outside under a side pergola in a crappy temporary storage cupboard, so finding what I needed was a job and a half, to be honest put me off getting things done.

    You do what you can. I've got a carport as well so I feel your pain completely. Working on the car just means alot of extra walking :)

    Cheap Bunnings shelves FTW? :leet:

    Mine looks a little untidy but it's actually reasonably in order and organised, even a mate of mine popped by the other day and was surprised at how organised it was.
