Pegs should be made of old worn-out broom-handles, about 7 inches long ; being of hardwood, it will be impossible to break them. Spike a 2×4 on the center of ceiling, full length of the shop, and place one end of upright against the 2×4 on ceiling, and kick bottom end (on floor) in tight. This will hold a number of board signs and will keep them up end out of the way, also; shorter uprights may be used on the walls of the shop for the same purpose.
