No-hook hangers for perforated hardboard
Tool hooks seem to come off perforated hardboard as easily as the tools they hold, so I came up with a different solution. I epoxied 1⁄2″ rare-earth magnets to the heads of #10×1⁄2″ flathead screws. These thread easily by hand into typical 1⁄8″ perforated-hardboard holes. I use them to hold chisels, screwdrivers, squares, files, and wrenches.
