Desktop Tool Rack Organiser for small hand tools
May also have other uses : pen holder, artist’s paint brush holder etc.
There are two different top plate versions for this.
Custom Top Plate
The one shown in the photos is a custom top plate for my own selection of tools. This should be useful for many tools and items.
General Top Plate
As an alternative, I designed a general top plate, which is basically a grid. There are also some inserts to adapt the square apertures to make them more useful for smaller tools
I haven’t printed out the full version of the general top, but I did do some tests to make sure the inserts fit and there is a CAD render to show what is looks like with and without the inserts.
For both versions there are some options that you can print for the sides. A small side rack for pens etc and a screw in reel holder for wire/solder etc.
