Keep your workshop organized by building this quick and easy lathe tool holder.
Making Handles and Chair Rung Tenons. Text by John Alexander and photos by Peter Follansbee. Viires, Woodworking in Estonia, illustrates a simple pole lathe erected on the end vise of a cabinetmakers bench. It has one substantial limitation.
In order to make room in my small shop for a wood lathe that I recently purchased, I had to get rid of an extra workbench. While I did not use the bench all that much, I really missed the machinists vise that was mounted on it. But then it dawned on me that I could still use the machinist vise by simply mounting it to the tailstock end of the lathe.
