Anyone that enjoys turning knows that you need your tools handy so you can make changes quickly or change to a different chisel, etc. Some gave me a piece of pegboard that they had left over and I attached it to the wall behind my lathe. I then mounted a couple of magnetic strips to hold my chisels. I then made a custom little rach to hold my drive/live centers and many of the miscellaneous items that always need to be handy. I don’t think that I will stay with the magnet strips however. It is great to hold the chisels and keep them handy. However, eventually, the chisels become magnetized. This isn’t much of a problem till you have to sharpen and the metal filings from sharpening want to stick to the tool. It is hard to get all of those filings off so that they don’t wind up as part of your project. I haven’t decided on another idea to replace the magnet to store my chisels.
