Was always searching around for the different “drive centers”, “live centers”, chuck keys and bottle stopper mandrels in a drawer.

I needed a better idea for easy access. A simple piece of wood attached to my tool panel and a few holes solved the problem.

Very nice, I need to do something with my tools, always falling down, or I can’t find them, or there at the wrong lathe. I just don’t have much room to do something like this. Have to think about some more. Looks great Bob. How goes the job hunt? We have a guy maybe coming to buy most of our turning wood soon, and that is a lot of wood. Have you seen the new colors lately? Hope all is well Bob.
