Shop Tip #136

Really long extension cords and air hoses can be really handy for use outside, but they can be a bit of a bother. I hang mine on the inside of my big shop door, where they can be easily wound back up after I use 'em. I avoid tangles by winding them back up in a "figure 8" pattern. That box in the middle of the door contains some simple air fittings - blow gun, tire chuck, etc.
