I use this trash can with a tilted board to hold my tools while I am turning. While not turning they stay in the trolley. The Stubby’s tail-stock fits in a hole in the base that is covered in this picture to keep stuff from falling in the can.
This trolley is controversially dangerous. If you reach in unaware you can cut yourself. I have found no better way to store allot of tools that can be rolled in front of 3 lathes. I don’t work from here its just storage!
I installed flexible pipe with gates and fittings along the wall above the three lathes. Also I have air and vacuum lines run that terminate at each station.
A view of the air, vacuum and vacuum chuck plumbing at one station. Note the four inch pipe with reducer (all fittings) attached to a IV tripod. I have found that this pipe is easy to position and removes air sufficiently. Three stations are plumbed in series with gates and quick disconnects. They are attached to one vacuum cleaner, one vacuum pump and one air compressor respectively.
Delta variable speed 8″ grinder mounted on shop made sharpening jig. I use a wolverine gouge jig although I also have shop made versions. It has been very difficult to set up the wheels on this unit 🙁
My totally shop made “scary sharp” honing station. I use this when I want to hone a really fine edge for skews and the like. From WoodCraft.
My Harbor Freight modified router table with Jenson insert. I use the router for cutting the precise angles on stave’s.
