Have had this nifty rack for my wood turning chisels off to the right side of my lathe on the front of the bench, drop the chisel through a hole and the brass fits in the hole and stops the chisel. Well I have been working with the skew and finally getting the hang of it, and have finally gotten a very "keen" edge on the skews I use (two large ones and one small one). Well finishing an acrylic pen last night, put the skew in the hole and I hear a clang. Yep, look down, the skew fell out of the handle and onto the floor. Yep, concrete floor. Yep, obvious mark on the edge. Yep, near tears. Yep, changing my tool rest design in the very near future. Yep, telling you this to prevent others from tears. Have a good day!!
