Air Hose Organizer

After I purchased a new upright air compressor, I realized there wasn't a place to wrap the air hose. To keep the hose from getting tangled, I welded two garden hose hangers opposite each other to a strap of steel. Then, I made a bracket, welded it onto the hangers and bolted it to the frame of the air compressor. The hose hanger can hold up to 75' of air hose, and it's attached to my air compressor to keep plenty of hose within reach when I need it.

Keep Gates Open on Windy Days

To keep gates open in the wind, I built a folding bracket made from 2" exhaust pipe and a ¾"-thin wall pipe. The pipe is attached to rotate at the bottom (about two rungs up the gate) and fit into a latch on the top rung. When I open the gate, I slide the pipe from the latch; it catches the ground and the gate stays put. Then, when closing the gate, I slide the pipe back into the latch. It's the extra hand that's always there when I need it.
