Hi folks, I did a quick search and didn't find much. I'm curious if any of you have good ideas for air tool storage with easy access. My tools are a bit bulky but I'd like to have a better setup. I was thinking maybe something on drawer slides so they are out of the way and kept somewhat clean. Maybe a special drawer. Another thought was a shelf with holes to stick the air nipple into. Tools I'm talking about are ratchet, impact gun, chisel, cutter, 3" cutoff and misc small pieces. My nailers are boxed which I like that way. Thanks for you thoughts and pics are always good :)

Here's a cool idea off the Miller Welding web site:

My air tools sit on a shelve, covered up with a old bath towel.

1993 NH 2120 (the best), 1974 MF 135 (sold, but solid), 1947 Farmall A (bought, sold, bought back, sold again), 1956 MH50 lbt (sold, in 1980, darn it)
I store them in the rollaway. I would find the two-hand thing frustrating.

i wrap my larger ones in a plastic thick mill garbage bag, and put smaller tools into large ziplocks to keep the air chucks clean.

I've thought about doing the same thing, but was concerned about the possibility of moisture/condensation getting to them.

it could I guess.. but in my shop I also do wood working and some metal working so I'm more concerned about metal chips or wood dust that settles around.

I try to oil my air tools regularly and just hope the moisture don't get them. but you do bring up a good point.
past of throwing a baggie of dessicant or cat litter in there.. i'm not sure what you could do about it.
