Tool Cabinet Add Ons

Some quick add on’s for my tool cabinet to help organize a few things that can’t really be stored inside easily.
I made a 3 peg panel to hold my safety stuff, then on the other side a small shelf to hold my battery charger for my drill and impact driver. Also got a small cable organizer that I attached to the side to hold my extension cord. It’s not as cool as a retractable one, but it works.

neat ideas I would put the respirator in a plastic bag to further protect it!

Great job! Can’t beat good organization / storage. Play safe.

I would shy away from a plastic bag for the respirator. Depending on the relative humidity, the respirator gathers quite a bit of moisture, leading to bacterial growth if sealed in a non-breathable bag. I do like the idea of a cloth bag (or vented cabinet) to keep the dust and critters off (I think Bakersfield is the spider/ant capital of the world). Now you’ve got me thinking … I am in the process of organizing/upgrading my shop.

After wiping down and allowing my ear muffs and respirator / dust masks to air dry, I store each of them in a Large Ziploc Vegetable bag – they have tiny, breathable holes but won’t allow the dust or critters to get in. I do understand the point re. bacteria, however, I have never had a problem storing them this way (on the moist / damp West Coast).

I had not thought of the vegetabe bags, they are breathable for the same purpose. I’ll give them a try myself. Thanks.

Jeremy, sorry about hijacking your blog.

@dlmckirdy
No worries, to be honest I never thought about covering up the respierator at all, at least now I have some ideas on what I can do.

My 2 cents on the respirator. With the filters you have on it, they will absorb things from the air in your shop whether you are breathing through it or not. The best is to remove them from the mask and store them in a zip lock bag or like I do, in an airtight tupperware container. The main body of my mask gets washed in warm soapy water and put in a fabric bag to dry. And remember those filters only last so long so replace them often. They might be a little expensive but your health is worth it.
