    Show us your Home made jigs and racks

    Going on from the post about tool racks on another forum would people like to share either homemade rack and or jigs they have made to aid them when turning.

    I will start off with the chisel racks and a router holder, there is a depth collar which is adjustable by the black star knob but not shown in this photo.

    This is just a couple as I have some ideas once I am feeling better as I am a little under the weather at th moment no energy and want to sleep all the time.

    Maybe not so much a jig but a lathe protector for finishing or painting works

    “Pro Turner” if only that was true!

    I have learnt you can turn it and burn it

    This is a wall cabinet that I made a while back to house Pro edge accessories & lathe centres etc

    This is a similar designed cabinet to hold turning tools

    Both shut flush with magnets for catches when not in use

    Variable speed controllers. In this country 2nd hand 3 phase motors abound cheap as ,combine a 3 phase motor and a Speed controller ever so more reliable than some of the nasty stuff fitted into lathes. I always buy their bare lathe and control later.@nd hand inline fan mounted above the lathe to atmosphere keeps that dust away.

    Do close it when you have selected a tool or just leave it open until project complete.

    Great looking cupboards I will eventually make some more. I have marked out the backboard and could not manage that even due to being tom and dick so that will wait until I am feeling 100%

    I don’t have wall space so I made this. It’s just held together with wedges. Full up now though so I need something else ...
