    this is great setup, we had cabinets like these at ECU. It won't exactly work in our shop, but there are aspects of it that I might incorporate.
    thanks Ken!

    Re: how do you store your chuck jaw sets?

    I use Harbor Freight tool box trays to hold my chuck jaws. They are inexpensive and come in two configurations. I have several of these trays in my under lathe storage cart.

    Re: how do you store your chuck jaw sets?

    I looked at those jaws. If I had to deal with that, I'd consider some t-slot strip.

    If you have multitudes of lathes and find storing morse taper stuff, here's a portable stand that gets things off the bench. I know that others use this concept but use only one strip of holes between the posts.

    Re: how do you store your chuck jaw sets?

    This is very simple. I use the metal shower curtain rings and hang four jaws on one ring (through the screw holes) and then hang the ring on a cup hook.

    thanks
    Stuart, I hang my Easy Wood jaws on nails using the "release hole". It requires a pretty steep angle but, once you establish that angle, they go on and off the nails just fine..
    If it doesn't hold soup...it's art.
