            Thanks Ji,

            Hopefully I'm gonna get to that soon. I am doing a lot of organizing and that is definately one that will get done. I''ve already bought all of the stuff I need. My biggest problem now is WHERE to put it But I'll sort that out eventually.

                Yes I was about to post the whole thing but got dragged away.

                My hanger will be fixed under a metal shelf so I need a beam.
                I purchased a 25 x 25 x 3mm or 1" x 1" x 1/8" aluminium square tube. I also purchased some female Nitto air tool couplers and some 1/2" UNF 20 1 1/4" bolts.
                These are the main parts that were required.

                    yeah, but how much does each connector cost?

                        wow, that looks like at least $120 just in connectors, i could buy a whole set of cheap disposable chinese air tools for that money.

                          A set of 5 connectors for $20.00 that makes each connector $4.00 each.

                            Jigantor,

                            That is a very slick idea you have. After giving it some thought I am determined to do this at home in the shop, and also at work. Most of the air tools at work look like they have been through a war. They are left on the welding table while welding, they are tossed on and slid across the table creating dings and abrasions. One of the great benefits I see in your idea is that if they are connected to the coupler (Nitto) when a person is done using the tool, it will seal the air inlet from all the metal dust and other stuff from grinding. We have had a couple air tools sent in for repair because this metal dust had gotten inside and really affected the tools operation.

                              yeah, and i counted at least 30 connectors on his rack, @ $4 each, that is at least $120 total.

                                I picked up 20 connectors for a buck a piece at harbor frieght when I was in the states. There decent looking machined brass connectors. I bought male threaded end ones so I can just drill and tap the bar and thread them in. Thanks for the inspiration jigantor.
