Im looking for some ideas on how to display a set of old snap-on sockets I have that were passed down from my grandfather. I would like to display them in my shop. Anyone have some ideas?

Thanks Bies

A nicely finished hardwood shelf with 3/8” or 1/2” (can’t tell which size drive they are) square wooden stubs, one for each socket. Rotate the stubs so that the Snap-On brand name and socket size is displayed to he front. The sockets would be displayed in all heir glory!

Cheers!

Cool! Then 5/8” stubs it’ll be!

I have the few remaining Snap-On tools from my late father in a locked display cabinet with a glass door. I’ve cleaned them up but the scratches and dents are still there. No one gets to use them but me.

I’m sure you’ll be proud to display them and from time to time, turn a few bolts!

Cheers!
