That does it. I'm buying stock in Phase II, or are they Aloris? :winner:

This I really like- especially for my financial and time budgets! The Uni-strut is affordable, readily available and I can have a functional rack in a couple of hours. If I want to get really extravagant I'll paint it grey.

Ok guys you are embarrassing me with all your lovely machined tool storage systems including the nice wooden one. I am not going to post again. :veryscared:

... while I'm at it, I'll show you mine. Here's how I built my AXA storage rack. The angled pieces are slices of a cardboard box corner stiffener (longer piece shown behind) that I got for free at a lumber yard.

Here's what the rack looks like with the rest of the tooling (wrenches, drill chuck, centers, etc.) above the lathe.

And here's where I store my chucks (on a rotating wood disk) and other items below the tabletop. Un-mounted cutting bits and other small accessories are in the drawers.

Mine are above the lathe, but I will heed the warning and slide the holder towards the tailstock. It's a good thing that I don't have 50 or 60 holders like some of you guys... :panic:
