Well I had ran into a situation in my shop that I had to address. I had/have three lathes, but only one set of tools. It seemed I was spending more time going from place to place to get a tool than I was turning. Of course my wife didn’t think my first solution of buying more tools was the best solution so I decided to solve the problem. I sat down with my design book and a pile of tools, chucks, measuring tools and so forth to decide how to and what I would need (want) within easy reach when I was turning. It took a bit of time but it came together. Using some 3/4” medium grade plywood and some locking casters from Home Depot the mobile tool cart became a reality. It is the perfect solution for my situation and maybe it would be for someone else as well. I also put my sharpening station on a inexpensive rolling tool box bottom so it can move with me as well it was a cheap easy project that took very little time and works great.
