    Does anyone have pictures of racks they made for their shop? I thought I remember seeing some here awhile back. I just rented space, 12'x30', and can't hang anything on the walls. I did a search but couldn't find anything. Any help? I would like to make them from wood because I have alot of excess. Thanks Matt

    I just nailed a 2x4 between two posts in my barn and hang them along the 2x4. So im sure you could just make any kind of stand and hang them along it.

    l l that seems simple enough

    In our rented space we were able to stick 2x4s under the lip of the steel beams in the ceiling then made a "box" that hangs down to hang the trimmers in. Most storage units have something in the ceiling you can bolt or screw into.

    There are pics of ours here

    We got the design from one of our dealers. Just use 2X10's & cut notches in them. When properly placed in racks, little,no gas leaks out. WE have a pie pan w/kitty litter on the floor under the end w/ the gas tank & carbs.

    Thanks Bob. That was the picture I remember. Simple but very effective. Matt

    We use screw in hooks that come from Lowes on the walls of our shop. Works great.
