    The Hansen trays are designed to be hung from a store display, but I'm not sure I'd trust them just being hung like that full of sockets - they're just plastic after all. If I wanted to put them on pegboard, I'd build an angled platform for them.

    Behold, MSPaint.

    I think the spice rack orientation makes a lot more sense, but yes. Unless you think that's what a spice rack looks like, in which case wtf?

    Oh I like that! Green drawer liners make everything east to see.

    I was going to get the racks but I dont have enough sockets to fill them all out and empty posts would drive me crazy haha.
    Yeah the drawer liner was pretty cheap on Amazon, like $15 for a huge 18" wide roll. It's really great, keeps stuff from rolling around a bit too.

    Empty socket slots are easily fixed, just buy more tools! Who cares if literally nothing you own uses a 27mm bolt head! I filled out most of the 1/2 drive sockets as I needed them for suspension stuff (pic is old, drawer is a lot more full these days) but I couldn't' be bothered to buy more of the 3/8&1/4 sockets.

    Any empty spots should be filled with 10mm and 7/16" sockets

    Need a little more dirt, cut the posts level, add a top plate to posts, then the plan is to put lattice in the back and some chicken wire in the front.

    I've got a bunch of good soil if you need some to fill them. Located in NW Calgary if you are close. But judging by how green everything is, I doubt it.

    How often do you have them/furnace cleaned? I did mine first day when I took possession which was 7 years ago but a co-worker said he does his every 2 years which I think is too soon, house shouldnt be that dirty.
    The technicians said anywhere from 2-3 years depending on if you live in dusty/developing area, have pets, etc. I think the last time it was done was 2013 if we go by stickers, and the amount of shit they got out was insane. They even found stuff the previous cleaning company missed, including empty water bottles, nails, drywall, and wood chunks. I gotta say the air quality in here is noticeably nicer now.

    I have one of the Ernst rails, they're OK but I found I prefer labeled racks for sockets so the Ernst gets used for bit-socket duty.

    I ended up with the PA Hansen clone trays and they're great.

    Hey where did you get your trays from?

    You need a whole tray filled with 10 mm sockets as spares

    Princess Auto! If you search "socket holder" on their site you'll see them. They're ~$100 if you buy them separately at regular price, but they periodically go on sale for ~60% off if you're patient. When I bought mine they had the whole set in one box but it looks like they don't offer that anymore.

    If you are in a hurry, you can get the actual Hansen trays on Amazon for about the same price (~$100), or a set of knockoff trays for around $50.

    that's actually a really good deal compared to what i've seen from the bigger well known companies. Will def look into them - thx for the review.

    PA is doing free shipping on all orders right now. No minimum purchase. Free shipping up to $100. If shipping costs are over $100, you pay the difference. Ordered an oil change drain pan for $7.99. Purolator express shipping was $41 but they covered it. Insane!!

    **edit, looks like they've updated it to minimum $25 order now**

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Is that a lite?

    Why not just get one of unifi’s outdoor rated ones? ( Pro or M-Pro)

    My brother was showing me an M pro he picked up yesterday, it’s enormous. About the same size as your junction box though lol

    I'd make the CAT hole bigger and put a gasket but it looks great!

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.
