    Hi Curly,
    I set them 80mm or 3 1/4" off the wall.

    Hi Bob,
    I will try.
    I am trying to show all the steps so if any one does not know how to do certain things they get to see it.
    It is hard to balance showing all the steps and not dragging it out.

    Hi Curly,
    It all depends on the size of your hand, air tools and the length of your tube.
    I made the spacings equal so it looks symetrical.
    Mine are spaced at 80mm or 3 1/8" a part.
    I started 50mm or 2" from both ends.
    I hope this helps

    Hi Andy,
    No biggy
    I was thinking about welding them on a steel tube but then the chrome coating would be lost and I would have to paint them, which I hate doing.

    The square tube I used is aluminium so I could not weld the Nittos on but if you use a steel tube sure no problems. The heat from the welding may reduce the tension in the Nitto spring but if you just tack it it should be okay.
    The Nittos I purchased had a female thread so I had to purchase bolts to connect them to the tube. If you can find the Nittos with a male thread that would be cheaper and easier. The only thing is that the thread will be 1/4" BSP taper.
    Which would mean that I would have had to buy a thread cutting tap.

    Anyway my hanger is not the only way there would be plenty of other ways to hang air tools. Just trying to help out with some tidy up ideas.

    Ahhh, sorry. That's what I get for not paying enough attention.

    I've seen the same trick on the snap-on truck, except he used a nice piece of hardwood trim.
