This past Sunday, I decided I needed to get the lathe turning tools organized. I put together the rack in photo #1 in a couple of hours out of scrap I had left over from various home remodel projects of the last year. (Never throw out good scraps!) The only thing I needed was an $8 set of magnetic tool holders from Northern Tools. In photo #2 you can see it hanging just above the lathe, with everything in easy reach.
Knowing that I’ll be back and forth between the lathe and the grinder, I set up a grinding station next door, with a Delta variable-speed grinder and Norton 3X stones, plus a One-Way Wolverine grinding jig. Got all the gouges and skews touched up and ready to go.
