finally built a new lathe tool holder

In my annals of procrastination, this doesn't even rate a close second, since I've only been saying that I'd get around to it for 2 to 3 years.

I kept messing up the Sketchup design so that part took about 4 hours when I think it should only have taken maybe 2. I got so tired of it that I didn't include the backstop sheets in sketchup.

Then I managed to screw up a few things while building it, but I was able to recover pretty gracefully and with only a few really loud cusswords but what I think should have been maybe a 5 or 6 hour job ending up taking more than 10, even though I had the sketchup layout to work from.

All in all, not a totally happy experience but the good news is that I'm satisfied with the result. Now if I can just remember to not bend over my lathe and back my butt into the gouges ...

That's a nice design; I'll have to make one for myself.

Thanks for the post.

If you use sketchup and would like my files to modify for your own use, just let me know.

Very nice. I like the design of this one. Everything looks like it is right at your finger tips. Do you think that the lower boxes might become a pain to get things out of? You're not getting any younger you know.

You got that right, Ken. Actually what I worried about more is stabbing myself in the wrist with a skew while reaching for another one, but in practise it is turning out to not be an issue at all.

As I posted on a turning forum, the other thing I have to worry about it bending over the lathe and backing into this wall of points and deflating my ego.

Just out of curiosity, I saw in a post a while ago, that another forum member (I think it might be Mike Hawkins) has something like a foam pipe insulation around the metal sections of his lathe chisels. You could mark the ends of your handles for identification and put the foam around them and turn the chisels around the other way. At least the identifying marks on the end of the chisels would help you choose the correct one and the foam would protect your chisel.
Just an idea.

This is the design our club uses. I have adapted it for my own workshop, too. Its attached to the nova lathe stand with 2 metal braces under the wooden bench behind. I'll post pics of the attachments after Easter when we have our next meeting. If anyone wants more info, I'll post that then as well.

Thanks for the post.

Put a wood support underneath with shallow pockets drilled out with a forstner bit for the bottom of the handles to set into.

There are no files this was made in less than 15 minutes. Just take a flat stick drill some pockets in it using a forstner bit & screw another stick to it for a vertical piece to screw to a wall mine is screwed to the side of my air cleaner dust remover behind the lathe & then screw the magnetic bar to the same surface & put your tools on it.
