I finally took the time to make a backsplash for behind my Logan 11" Lathe. I mounted it up in primer figuring I would have at least some paint on the surface that would keep it from rusting, and still allow me to weld some brackets and pins on it then finish paint when it is done.

So now I'm kind of stuck. I know that I want my AXA tool holders mounted on the "wall." Also want the LOO spanner mounted in good position.

Anybody have any good ideas, pictures of what they have done? Always good for me to get ideas before I charge ahead with my own ideas.

My backsplash is 70" long and 29" tall with a flange bent on the bottom so that runoff will go into the drip pan rather than the wall behind the lathe.

I plan to add a top that will come out to the edge of the lathe drip tray. There I plan on a light.

Here is what I did for my AXA tool holders.

I used a couple of the HF magnetic tool bars, made a couple angled brackets and mounted to the top edge of the back splash. Tool holders stay attached, and remove easy. Seems to work so far - but not had much run time to actually find if I really like.

I have one of those on hand. I'll start with that. Thanks

Here’s mine.



The perfect shop looks as if it was NEVER USED great to look at.




And just a SS baking sheet for minis



Air naturel for the larger ones.

I used 1" aluminum angle, a 1010 slotted rail and some bar stock to make this rack for my lathe. The brackets and tool holders don't have to be this fancy but when you have a CNC mill everything looks like a CNC project.
