    When I had my shop set up I had a horizontal board fastened to a vertical board with saw kerf's cut into the horizontal board.

    The boards were glued & nailed together so the outer end of the horizontal board with the kerf's was about 3-5 degrees higher on the outer end. The saw hanger was screwed to the end of a cabinet & the saws were just slid into the kerf's with the handles on top of the board.

    No pics, but mine just hang on a peg hook.

    Do a search for "hand saw till" should bring up some images. Just make sure you leave room for the cord
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    I'll have to get some pics tonight. Mine sit on a shelf in a pile as I used to carry them in my truck tool box. I have a piece of hardwood with a slot held over the teeth that is held on with wire to protect the teeth.

    Mine just hang from a nail or peg board hook. But, since they are only occasional use items for me, I spray them with Rust Guard a gun protectant I get from gunsmith supply houses.

    The old way [image on right] took up too much space. New way is much more compact.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
