nice wrenches, but they look to be all the same size, and for bigger wrenches they would be box style, not flat. The peg board looks lonely , and the brick wall is to clean. Peg board is for Bob Vila, Machine shops use metal fixtures

Marty,   The peg board just don't look right to me...I think something made out of wood to hold the tools will look the part.  You know like a tool holder that has been on the wall for 60 plus years  Wink

Not sure of the era you're going for, but I did some digging and peg board as such seems to be a 1950s and later thing ... Masonite as such came about in the mid to late 1930s ... first photo is from a 1938 advertisement.

So, I did some digging in old Popular Mechanics magazines, etc. to find a handful of tool racks and such that would be plausible around WW2 and earlier ...

At the risk of a minor high-jack, here's a bunch of them ... some may be more interesting than others ... or maybe it's all a bunch of useless crap for you ... sorry!  (I was searching mostly for things that would believable in a small auto shop) Huh  Cool  Tongue

More reference crap ... the photo names include the year.

The heater is thrown in for kicks ... notice that it's gasoline-powered, with an INDOOR gas tank ... and says that it was used in a restaurant!

Last one in my hi-jack ... this one has recessed spots for all the different tools ...

PS -- These things were found by using the "books" search feature on google ... you can set a specific time period (for example, 1920-1945, whatever) ... and you can also search only in specific titles, like Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, etc ...

PPS -- If it's all a bunch of useless annoying crap, just say so and I'll remove these posts!  (I'm accustomed to being useless and annoying, so no offense will be taken)  Grin

It's been a while, but I think I used the "print screen" function to make snapshots of the results ...

Cheers,
Dallas

Hi Marty,

if you're interested, I might even leave a set of open-end wrench, 1:16.

The sentence is unfortunately metric.  Wink

Dallas,
All good info and glad to have it.
I think the pegboard is too modern for my shop.
Just wanted to show the offering from my laser guy.

I have open, offset open and box wrenches!

Thanks to all for the input and looking in.

Just a small update.
Something i wanted to do for a while; the wall shelf - everything else is old.
Think I will build a bigger one now.

Photo's look great! Who's your photographer  Huh Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
I like the work bench very much, but the shelves would be hard to reach, I think the Big A$$ MS needs a Kennedy tool box, a Machinist roll-a-way, I have my fathers, I can take pictures for you, but you know what they look like!

That's, um, good. You were concerned about the joining bricks that are somewhat skewed. This especially makes the wall interesting. Looks like sometime a part has been added to the building. On first sight it really looks like a prototype pic. On 8th sight I'm starting to look for something to carp about. Maybe the coloring of the wood of bench and sill, which looks to "new" / yellowish/brownish. Unfortunately there are no rivets for an experts opinion. Cheesy
