I have shelves between the lathe and mill that I store tools and materials on and it’s getting full, so I wanted a more convenient place to put my quick change tool posts. Tom had a nice he made from sheet metal framing for construction. As usual, I didn’t feel like making a store run so digging though the scrap heap (which really thinning anyway), I pulled out angle iron and 1/16″ sheet. Lots of drilling, tapping (1/4″x20), band sawing, grinding and banging on the vise to bend tabs I have a handy rack.
