A simple, pegboard compatible, rack for a 9-piece hollow punch set, specifically this one from Harbor Freight, item #3838.
I had originally planned to place the punches in the rack with the sharp edge pointing up. After it was printed though, I noticed that a few of the bottom ends had mushroomed ever so slightly from use, but enough to make fitment tight. I thought about filing the edges down, but they'd just mushroom again when I use them. I thought about making the holes larger, but then the punches would rattle around in the rack. Then it dawned on me.. hey moron, turn the punches upside down. Not only do they fit perfectly, the sharp tips are protected and the sizes are visible. That's ok... we all have blonde moments :)
The mounting holes are aligned with standard pegboard spacing (1" on center) so you can use peg hooks, as I did. The holes are also slotted for easy screw mounting.
Print in the orientation provided with no supports with a mid-range infill - I went with 40%.
I am a self-proclaimed know-it-all. I will tackle any project regardless of my experience, or lack thereof. Always ready to learn something new. With over 25+ years experience in electronic repair and 10+ years experience in small engine / ATV / motorcycle repair, there is nothing I can't fix, modify or build.
Why a pepper? In case anyone is curious as to why there is a hot pepper embossed into most of my designs... My nickname is Pepper and that little pepper logo is a hell of a lot shorter than "Copyright © 2017 by Derek J.G. Tombrello" which is how I usually sign my work :)
