Where can I get this speed square holder that Tom Silva wears on his belt. http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb53/peteworth/speedsquarecopy.jpg
He even put a combo square it it. http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb53/peteworth/speedsquare3.jpg
I just tuck mine between the toolbelt and my jeans at the small of my back. It gets it out of the pouch to ease access to the other tools yet keeps it handy. When carrying too many tools like that (picture ), holsters and pockets get lost, meaning you've got so much stuff that you can't just reach back and find what you need without looking for it.
I keep a 5 gallon bucket nearby with an array of tools for the things I do most, and rotate them into my pouches as necessary. Doing it this way keeps my toolbelt clutter free and the tools I need right at my fingertips. Another tip is to use screwdrivers with different handles so that you know your flat tip from your phillips by touch.
I actualy like to have my apron full, I dont like going back and forth, even for a tool that I dont use often. I guess everyone has their own way of working and comfort levels, I like to keep a 6-in-1 screw driver on me at all times. I also wear my tool belt in front of me and not in back of me, the way I imagen you wear yours. Thanks for the advice:) , but I still really want that holster if anyone else knows......I would really apreciate it.:D
You are correct, I wear my belt backwards, tucking the speed square will still work, however. I do understand your preference to having things at hand, and I try to do the same most of the time, it's just that the belt gets pretty darned heavy by the time you load it down with all the things you'd use in a day.
If all else fails, you might try a Big Lug tool hook.

Found the quote right here at TOH.
Thanks for that tip A. Spruce.
Thanks kentvw but I saw that post and what jeff is talking about is thishttp://www.duluthtrading.com/search/searchresults/54046.aspx?feature=Product_3&kw=square which literaly looks like a gun holster, and what i'm looking for is a that black rectangular box i posted a picture of.
I think I'll be getting that Big Lug tool A.Spruce , thanks all for the responses.
But you know what guys, I am starting to think that he fabricated it himself. Perhaps it's a piece of sqaure tubing that he managed to make into a holster.
You're welcome, the nice thing about the "big lug" is that it's great for hanging air tools on or a cordless drill when you need a third hand (or forth, or fifth ... ) at the top of a ladder.
