Topic tags/keywords: question jig storage

Hey guys,

I am starting to collect more and more jigs, and I never seem to have a good place to store them.

Right now I have:

1. Crosscut sled (2’x4’)
2. Tenoning jig
3. Flush trimming jig
4. Router horse (Pat Warner’s. 30” long)
5. A couple of dado/groove router guides (30” long)

I’m thinking about hanging them on a wall, above where my workbench stands currently.

Do you hang your jigs? What do you hang them on? Where in the shop do you hang them (does it even matter)?

Thanks,
Boaz

I have seen people hang them between rafters in their garage, one the wall, in a wall cabinet where ever they want.

Pick a spot that convient for you, there is no right choice.

My crosscut sled is right in front of the saw, leaning against it. It isn’t quite as big as yours, though. It is out of the way, but very handy.

Yes, I hang most of them with eye-hooks. Mainly from rafters (basement shop). The sleds for the table saw are hung at the end of the right side extension table so they are easily accessible.

I hang ‘em. Drill a hole, screw a bolt in the wall or side of a cabinet. Done.
