So my tools and spare parts have taken over...

I need to get more organised.

Ive been eyeing up something like this:

    I bought this Halfords bundle for peanuts (ex display, easily bullied salesman, etc): http://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/ ... ow-to-high

    Works well, although I've now overflowed due to wheel building kit and other oversize tools.

    Sealed Draper do deals where you buy a tool chest then get £x of tools free (it's a loss leader for them).

    I bought a chest for £100 and got £400 of tools for free, so worth a look.

    Deals on all the time.

    Who? Me? Garage. So long as you keep it under control it all fits away quite nicely. I have a clean working area (workbenches, tool chests) a weights area (middle ground) and a dirty area (front part, outside door, specific cleaning gravelled area).

    I'll post a piccie in a minute. Talking of which, Dirk piccies going on now :)

    I quite like the peg boards in the garage for tools and storage

    I really should get my garage organised better.
    Tools live in a large tool chest and roll cab. The problem I have is that I have a car, 4 bicycles and a motorbike (in bits) plus a variety if spares and other junk in a small single garage.
