lathe storage cart

space is a premium in my 12' x 20" shop so instead of making a hanging lathe chisel rack I ended up making a cart to hold 36 chisels plus all my other misc. lathe items; chucks, mask, drill chuck and mandrels. It's on wheels so I roll it out of the way when I'm using the lathe.

It barely fits under the lathe the dimensions are 36" x 24" x 23ish" tall. The pvc is 1 1/2" so You can get about 9 across on 17"

Not a bad build at all!! I am putting most of my saws, carts, what have you, on wheels also.

Nice. That gives me an idea for how to arrange chisels in my shop as well. Also did you mean 20 inches? Or feet? If it's inches how are you able to turn safely?

I really like your idea. They only challenge I would have is that since I don't turn very often, I'd be constantly pulling tools out to until I could find the one I wanted.

aahhh.....if you click on the picture and zoom in you'll see I wrote the chisel name on the handle so I knew what the heck I was grabbing.

You need more tools. Fill that cart up, and then add more tubs. I have tools stuck in an upside down milk crate because I have already used up my racks.
First I build this rack, and thought, this will be plenty of storage. lathe storage cart-image-2744441653.jpg

Then, I built this rack, and thought this will definitely be enough storage. lathe storage cart-image-2737844380.jpg

Well, I was wrong on both accounts. Until I get around to build a bigger rack I have resorted to this. lathe storage cart-image-681965167.jpg

I wish I had room in my shop to build something like that for my lath.

I have to store mine vertically on a small dolly. What can I say it works, but luckily I donít use it much. LOL

It would be quite a chore turning me 850 pound Powermatic on its end.
