Each to be hung near where the tools are used most often. Better than tin cans and plastic bins.
Note that each has at least one pencil! :-)

Jim,
Two might be doable, but three pair would be a bit bulky. :-)
The rest of each pair were all most in tatters.
Cabelas sells some tough overalls. Those were somewhere around 7-8 years old.

My overalls are being stretched out at the moment. Can’t seem to find a pair that fir right. Those tools would stab me if I bend over.

Gracias, Kova.

David, Tee shirts without pockets are just shop rags. But tighty whiteys got too many seams.

Personally, whenever I put a tool in my pocket, it ends up in the washing machine. Good thing numbers and lines on Starrett 6” straight edges are waterproof!
