Create: Tool Organizer

Tool Organizer

Getting Started

Build your own tool organizer using Arrow’s PT18G Pneumatic Brad Nailer and Arrow PT50 Pneumatic Staple Gun. We designed our tool organizer to fit Arrow staple guns and staples so that from light-duty jobs to heavy-duty projects, all of our favorite staplers would be in one place. However, you can use this organizer to house a variety of tools. Appropriate personal protective equipment such as safety goggles, gloves and hearing protection should be worn at all times.

Step 1

Attach shelf supports to the sides of the organizer. Place the two sides on a flat surface beside each other. Use square to keep in alignment. Measure down from the top, 3-3/8” and 10-3/4”; draw guidelines from side to side. Glue shelf supports below each guideline and 3/8” in from the back; secure in place with the Arrow PT50 Pneumatic Staple Gun. Wipe away any excess glue and set aside.
