I'm trying to get my work area more organized. Stop leaving tools on my workbench. To that end, I've been 3D printing tool holders that get mounted on 35mm DIN "top hat" rail. DIN rail (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIN_rail) has been around for 80 years, and is mostly used to mount circuit breakers and other electronics. It's nice because it's relatively inexpensive, easy to mount, and comes in some very long lengths.

I have been adding to the Thingiverse collection (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4888847/) as I go along, and intend to continue. I have published the source (OpenSCAD) in Github (https://github.com/RussNelson/tool-holders) so that people can contribute their own designs.

Imagine if this takes off, and we have a large community of users. Maybe tool manufacturers will start paying attention, and will publish designs for their own tools? It's just a file and a relatively small one, too. Then, everybody who buys a tool will have a way to keep it out of their toolbox and off their workbench.

To that end, please share this, and tag people and groups who would find this useful. I think I'll call the idea "Tophat Tools". That can be a group name, domain name, hashtag, or whatever.
