Mark Mandell - Gone Round In Jersey
>Had made myself a mobile tool rack that rolled around the lathe on an old office chair base. Worked ok but it was never where I wanted it at the moment and, being built in a circular format to save space in the Shoebox Woodshop, the tool I needed was always on the opposite side of the circle(of course).
Therefore I scraped together some extraneous pieces of 2" PVC and put this new rack on the wall to have every tool within easy reach and a step or two. The individual tubes are open at the bottom so that any shavings simply fall right on through and wind up on the floor as the stops are slanted at a 30* angle. Got the basic idea here on WC, but don't remember whose post it was.
