I got real tired of looking for the lathe tool I just laid down.
And there was always the concern that I would bump something and dull the edge.
Now they each have a place right above the lathe.
And no, I wasn’t trying to make them fancy…just functional.
There is a place for my next 2 tools on the left.

Above the lathe? Just remember to turn it off when reaching for the tool. You have good setup- I would adapt it and put it under the lathe on the stand.

Under the lathe? Where all the shavings collect? Not likely!
