The metal box this set came in is pretty durable but moving the whole set at once is clumsy. Grabbing the size I think I need and one socket on each side of it (just in case) will work out just fine. By this I mean I'm gonna put the sockets in a rack in the big drawer of the 72 with the rest of the socket sets. This will require a socket rail or rack and when I went online to investigate for such a device what I was seeing were fairly high priced racks with the wrong number of pegs for my set. I decided to make one.
I had some wood left over from the triple rack project but did have to buy $3 worth of wooden dowel. That didn't break the bank and certainly falls within the guidelines of "gearhead on a budget".
First I had to cut the wood to width and then lay the sockets on it for spacing.
Once I knew where the pegs would go I got to use my forstner bits again. I should have bought these years ago.
For the pegs I decided to put an angle on the top so I could label them and easily see those labels. After the angles were cut on the compound miter saw, I used Grandpas table saw to cut them to length.
A little sanding...
Here is what the rack will look like before paint.
Its all in the video:
