Keeping Pegboard Hooks from Falling Out when Removing Tools
Awesome idea, works great.
Some cool ideas
This is a brilliant solution. Thanks for posting it! I've already lost track of where I originally hung most of my hooks due to them always falling out. Thankfully I have a photo from when I first set up the peg board, so can use that as a reference and secure them all in the same places properly this time.
I have never seen a golf ball with a solid centre, all the ones I have seen are made with a small sack of rubbery fluid surrounded by loads of rubber bands.

I took all the funky coloured golf balls, drilled a hole in them and epoxy mounted long concrete nails in them ( heads cut off with a Dremel) Kids will hang up their clothes, jackets, helmets and the like if you mount these on boards or directly in walls. Also, clothes hung on the ball dont rip when pulled by impatient children.
Of course it is always better to be safe than sorry... take the necessary precautions. I had also mentioned in an earlier reply, modern golf balls, by a vast (almost total) majority, are solid core. According several articles I have read, the use of rubber band wound and liquid core balls was almost entirely abandon when the Spalding company introduced the first solid core golf ball in the late 1960's.Another interesting fact: What was in the liquid core balls anyway? Titleist, the leading manufacturer of liquid-filled balls says the liquid was nothing more than salt water and corn syrup.Thanks for your comment, and you are correct, take necessary safety precautions.
When buying used golf balls, keep in mind, some have rubber band centers (as mentioned in earlier comment), some are solid core (as you used), but some even have a liquid core which is under pressure and released when drilled into. I found this out a few years ago with a similar project. It can be messy and probably harmful too. I could find no way of knowing what the interior of the ball was made of by looking at it. Be safe.
That must have been a REALLY old golf ball... I was under the impression that they haven't been made that way for many, many years. The 20 or so I've cut into so far have all been a solid core. Valid point though... Thanks for your comment.
Surform may be a Stanley brand name, but for the most part, it is another generic term for all tools like that, whether flat, round, curved, etc.A "Rasp", to me anyway, usually refers to a type of steel file that has a coarse to very coarse cutting edges, usually intended for shaping wood.Either way, I think your on the right track.
yeah, you are correct... but... I don't know if anyone would call something from a dollar store "good". ;-)If I where doing a lot of them there are cheaper alternatives (price per peice). Thanks!
They came with the screwdriver. You can see it, as it was, in the first picture for that project. Thanks!
Sorry, your probably right... I also believe they were close to the board stretchers as well... haha! ;-P
