Above Head Storage System / Système de rangement supérieur

Des pots de plastique et leurs couvercles, des languettes de bois, le tout pour ranger ma quincaillerie et des petits objets au plafond de mon atelier.

Plastic jars and their lids, wood strips, all that to store hardware and small objects above head.

Pour maintenir de si petites vis, j’aime bien utiliser un aimant sur l’embout pour faciliter la fixation des couvercles sur les languettes.

To hold such tiny screws, I like to use a magnet on the driver bit to ease fixing the lids onto the strips.

Fixés sur une languette, je peux les installer où je veux, ou presque.

Attached onto a strip, I can set them were I want, or almost.

    I use my rafters for everything. I am taller and the ceiling in the workshop is closer to 7 feet. Everything is right at the specific tool/workbench site and easily reached for. I hate putting often used things in drawers …. it may look neat and tidy but does not allow smooth working habits. I do not think sawdust ever hurt a wook working tool. Peanut Butter jars work the best as they have a full-width mouth into the jar. They also come in two or three sizes. I see you are using plastic. I also prefer the plastic lids, however, I find that “bottle” is a little opaque and prefer the glass ones; however, sometime (has not happened yet) one will drop to the floor and I will have to deal with it. I also use horseradish jars and English mustard jars for smaller items. I have eaten lots of peanut butter, mustard, and horse radish to build my “collection”. Also, have a few friends donating to the cause. Still working at it after more than 10 years.

      Great! As I’m getting older I realized that I’m getting shorter too, reason why I came up with the wood strips to lower the jars a bit.
      Keep working!

    My wife and I bought a house in 1980 that had been owned by a family friend since the early 60’s. It was an “as is deal” and I hardly got to look it it before purchase. When I finally cleared out the garage I found a hundred plus jars like this full of misc. screws, bent nails and bolts with buggered up heads. There were also two big drawers filled with the same. He threw nothing away!
    I set up a card table and put two pesky neighborhood boys to work sorting it all out. They learned to tell and 8-32 screw from a 10-24 and gained invaluable hands on experience with lots of hardware. And I got a lot of well sorted fasteners!

      Loren, what a lucky man you are!
      But you didn’t tell if ‘you’ discarded then bent nails and buggered up head bolts! Lol
      Your story reminds me the first house we bought in 1971, which has nothing but a crawling space as basement, where months later I found a 4 feet long train rail track. I had quite a hard time to get it out from there!
      Thank for sharing.

    Très bonne idée, je vais enfin récupérer et réutiliser pots de beurre d”arachide et autres du même genre plutôt que l’ envoyer au recyclage où aux ordures .

      J’en suis ravi Luc. Quand on s’y arrête vraiment on réalise que presque tout peut être réutilisé.
      En passant, j’ai deux contenants sur un comptoir d’établi dans lesquels je dépose toutes (et oui, toutes) les petites pièces de métal, un pour le fer et l’autre pour l’aluminium. Lorsque pleins, au lieu de les jeter aux ordures, je les donne aux ferrailleurs qui parcourent les rues à chaque semaine pour ensuite les vendre aux fonderies pour être réutilisé. Comme on dit, tous les petits gestes comptent !
      Au plaisir…

    Another cool idea because you can glance up and instantly see the items, and I never thought of putting a magnet on my bit.
