Quick Festool rail storage.
« on: December 09, 2017, 06:09:23 PM »
 I've been carefully moving my rails around the shop for years and finally had a few minutes to figure out a storage solution. I had a piece of shiplap siding in the lumber pile and it gave me the idea to make a few cleats where I could tuck the top of the rail under the upper cleat and they couldn't fall off the wall. A pass through the table saw to get the width I wanted, and another two passes to make an extra deep rabbet on the back, then cut them 24" long. An easy fifteen minute project and now they are safe and out of the way. I had a wide angle shot, but that has disappeared from my phone.  ::) (Ssmsung sucks!).  Here's a close up. Vertical spacing is 6 1/2".

Thanks. They were always in the way, and I figured sooner or later one of them was going to get bent.  $ :'( $

I probably would have done that, but I would have to jack my garage up and run another course of block.  ;D

Looks like a clean simple answer to that problem.
I could see using this idea in the future to solve several flat tool storage ideas.
Most of us are space limited and I'm always looking for more ways to consolidate crap.
Thanks for sharing.

I'd like to go,  but I won't know until we get closer.

The M18 chopsaw has been great. Its only a 10", but it has good power and the battery lasts a long time. It is supposed to be able to cut 150 2x12 on a single charge, and I don't doubt it.
