Lathe Tool Revolving Storage Tower #14 Tour de rangement pivotante pour outils de tournage

 

Les derniers éléments à ajouter à la tour sont les aimants et les coupes qui les maintiendront en place.

The last elements to be added to the tower are the rare-earth magnets and the cups to seat them in.

Vous pouvez remarquer que j’ai prévu des emplacements supplémentaires pour d’autres aimants si jamais le besoin se faisait sentir.

You can see that I pre-drilled more holes for future cups and magnets just in case I would need them later.

  1. Very nice. It looks like it’s close to capacity though…

    • Buenas dias Jose,

      It’s been a while since I heard from you. I remember and I still like the way you antique your projects. Good job too!

      Muchas gracias por el comentario.

      Best,

    Hi, the tool holder & drawer design is very nicely done. The only caution I would be hoping to point out is to place this nice tool holder somewhere no-one will need to reach around. Since all the business ends of those knives are all up & exposed, a moment of inattention could lead to a nasty surprise across the bottom of a wrist or arm.

    Reaching over to a switch for a blower or vacuum, light or anything one might have on a wall or shelf near your machine could be a work stopper indeed. Especially if the knives are well sharpened, as they should be. The magnets hold them firmly also so a good brush against one should be enough to bring unfortunate results.

    If you were to maybe install a few pieces of uprights with a clear plexi across the front covering the face-tops of the knives that are taller than the tool holder. The knives would still be visible & they would be covered against inadvertent brushes against them. The knives would be easily accessible to retrieve & replace if the plexi is not overly wide & just covers whats truly needed to guard against the sharp ends.

    I hope you don’t see this as a criticism, on the contrary I admire the design and am thinking of keeping the idea in mind for my shop that I am presently setting up. Great idea, Thank you.

    • Hi RR, Thank you for your kind words and for you comment. I found a quick solution and I shared it within another post. I simply cap my turning tools with plastic pill containers, as shown on this photo from the previous mentioned post.

      Positive criticism is always welcome here ! 🙂

      Best,
