    I grew up in a woodshop that was exactly like that. My father was meticulous about everything. It never really took with me though HAHA I have a hard enough time remembering where I left my keys in a 900sq ft house, let alone where the tin snips should go after every use.

    I have a couple of friends that are just as anal about their tools, as well. Occupational hazard of befriending EEs and guitar techs, I guess?

    Wait! You guys utilize a peg board?! I just buy thin plywood and drill all those holes myself to save money. :whistle:

    No pegboard for me, just throw the tools in a drawer and no one ever knows what's in there or if organized. Out of site, out of mind :)

    Yeah, that works until all drawers and every single available horizontal surface is cluttered with train stuff ... Then ya start putting everything into boxes and pile the boxes one on top of the other in the closet, under the layout, on the work bench in the garage ... It never ends...

    Gotta love those lifetime 2x4 Adjustable Height fold-in-half tables if I identify in your pic correctly. Bought one in May, a real handy table to have around...

    Take my desktops and canned air outside once a year for a good dust removal session, especially P/S and CPU fans. And, do the same with rolling stock offsite. Have a very fine brush to dust off too.

    That's exactly what they are, and they are awesome! And my 2'x4' bases fit them perfectly!

    This is it... The adjustable height is really nice. Supported 14" laptop, docking station, 24" monitor, keybd, mouse and room for coffee to boot! Also had the 2x4 layout on it a short time last June before boxing. It worked great.

    For blowing out PC, I use my compressor, that is if you have a compressor. Canned air is too expensive!

    Organized? What? You mean that having a cluttered up desk, upon which you generally know where each tool or detail item is, generally, isn't organized?? A perfectly organized tool bench, etc. reminds me of Rimmer, on Red Dwarf! (If you don't know this, do look it up! Folded and hung up underwear , for example!)

    Everything must be just organized enough to keep us mostly saNe........

    Was looking for my adhesive clips, and stuff, still haven't found them. But when looking found a brand new N SCale Remote Switch Machine which I needed :) I need this one really bad. Might need some more in the future, but should be good for now.

    Saved me another $16.00 I had already spent!
