Completed some storage for my Jet 1642 last weekend.
The tool holders are 1.5” PVC pipe. I drilled through each one and installed a bolt with clear vinyl hose over it to protect the tool and allow shavings to fall through. I varied the placement of the bolt depending on the length of the tool handle so they all would line up nicely and look uniform when inserted. All of the tubes are loose so they can be rearranged if I decide I don’t like the placement.
For the drawer/shelf unit, I made the top slanted so that shavings will (hopefully) not build up on top of the unit.
It’s really great to have everything organized now – the top of my radial arm saw was home to all of this stuff before now.
Oh yeah and here is a pic of my wall-mounted sharpening center as well. I basically made 2 trusses out of 2×4s, lag bolted them to the studs, and mounted the plywood and grinder on top.
