Thought I would post this up for anybody needing a simple storage solution. Not my original idea. But simple and effective. Small eyelets and shepherds hooks.
I'm sure the angle of the picture is skewing the actual placement of the tools. They are hanging beneath the bed and and set back about 8-10 inches behind the tool rest. And I don't know about you but I leave plenty of room between me and the tool rest, which in turn leaves plenty of space between me and the tools. If I was afraid of sharp tools banging against my shims I wouldn't have organized them this way.Sorry, I am not fan on this.
I don't like the idea of a skew chisel & other sharp tools knocking against my shins.
That's where mine were previously. But since my lathe now sits in front of a window that wasn't an option. So I came up with this. This was the simplest option for me so I ran with it.I just have mine in a rack behind the lathe; I expect that is what most people do. How is this better? Looks like you would be kicking them all the time.
