Argh! A whole bunch of my tools aren't ferrous enough!
I installed magnetic tool-holder strips at the pointy ends of my triangular closer, where the shelves are 1" deep or non-existent. I figured that would be a great place to store all the tools, and then I could simply eliminate the drawer that was holding them.
It's not quite working out the way I'd planned.
But when I went to load them, I discovered that some of my most important tools won't cling! They're not ferrous enough to stick to the magnet.
-the utility knife
-the 4-in-1 screwdriver (the shaft is some other sort of metal--the bits stick, but that's not enough)
-the metal-cased tape measure (but fort. the clip is ferrous, so that will stick)
Fortunately, I had a suction-cup basket hanging around, so I took off the suction cups and put double-stick foam on the back, and stuck THAT to the wall to hold them.
Every now and then I sort of wish I'd put a piece of sheet metal on the back wall, so I could stick stuff anywhere I wanted to with magnets. Sort of like pegboard.
Come to think of it, I can probably hot-glue or caulk magnets to the wall if I really wanted to.
Oh, and the electric screwdriver: Since IT's not magnetic, I'm going to get a piece of PVC pipe big enough for it to fit in, then I'l cut off a short length and hot-glue it to the wall so the screwdriver will stand up in it.
And I discovered the handle
