I am sure that you intuitively know where you placed every tool so that retrieval is fast and efficient. It's the same for everyone but what I found interesting is when our son came to my shop for a project and without asking he was able to locate the tools that he needed. It must be DNA related.

This also explains why at my age moving to a new shop would be a disaster. The burnt in memory of where each tool or fastener resides would be lost.

Just trying to rebuild/remodel my basement into a better shop has me constantly looking for stuff that is no long in its OLD resting place.

I really have no choice if i want to have an acceptable work shop but it does scramble the brain a bit when you have to ask yourself which cabinet did i put XYZ. Then you have the really hard choices about which items to keep. Sometimes you just end up staring at the mess wondering if it makes sense to go forward.

Oups! sorry, the car was a mistake. But by the way it's standard cabriolet with AMG kit.
Arkograf, is a tool for the marking HSS tools for exemple. Or all kind of marking on hard metal
