I posted these in response to a posting by “docholladay” who was looking for a betteway to hang his turning chisels on the wall, some guys like to drop them thru a hole in a shelf but I found the handles all got tangled together, tpis smacking each other resulting in the odd “dull”edge. I find they all hang evenly and make it easy to grab which one you want, it is aesy also to add or subtract a chisel with another hook

Just how many turning chisels does one need? This coming from a guy with 8 pairs of hiking boots.

Nice set up though.

Great idea!
I’m new in turning, so mine can be in a little carrier still, but since my workshop are really small, this is one I’ll remember, those tools have a bad habbit – they grow like ….

Hey Richard, seems you also get “needs” & “wants” a bit mixed up as well
