We do plenty of arguing and disagreeing on here, so I thought it'd be good to share some tips with each other. Maybe make each other's job easier
-There's a product called plasi-dip that's real nice to coat your tool handles in. Makes a rubber coating that has a soft feel.
-In the summer you can use vetwrap on the handles when they're slick from sweat and fly spray.
-Here's a stand you can make from thin-wall pipe and old shoes. Costs nearly nothing to make and it's light and strong. Very durable too. Takes under an hour to build.
-Hoof pick filled with silicone and wrapped with vetwrap so it's really soft and spongy
-Here's some toolbox ideas. Magnetic nail tray so in the event of a crash, your nails don't get spilled and scattered. Tall so that you don't have to bend over to move and roll it around. Tall swivel casters roll better on unfavorable terrain. Base is the widest part. The reason I did this is so it's not tippy, and because if a horse steps sideways into it, they roll it out of the way. Kind of like a bumper all the way around it. Similar concept as a walker that you put babies in. When it hits a wall, the bottom hits (not the tray of tools) Less tool retrieving. The one thing I don't like about this box is that it rolls so good, you almost have to be on perfectly flat ground or it'll leave. Could use the casters with little brakes on em I guess
I'm sure I'll think of more tips that aren't tool-related later on. But this will get it started
