Pegboard Tool Storage - Screwdrivers


I really hate these things.  Pegboard storage of screwdrivers in this form was probably great in 1963.  Today, the metal is flimsy, the welds break easily and, you know, they just don't work very well. 

It's time for a new design:
  • easy insertion, no aiming for two rings
  • expandable to number of tools on hand
  • screwdrivers must stay straight and neat
  • no weak welds
  • small screwdrivers shouldn't fall through
Staring with the blank pegboard template, I added a half cylinder and then an inverted cone.  I hollowed out the cone into a funnel shape.  


Once printed, it looks and works like this:



which gives me screw driver pegboard storage that looks like this.  All the goals are covered.
