Tooling up at PS:1

I'm now the metal shop host at Pumping Station One, a makerspace in Chicago. We've received quite a few donations in the past year, and we're working on getting everything up to speed. We're "tooling up". I've taken the last 2 visits to build a few accessories for the machine tools.

Sunday I made a chuck key for our Prazi Lathe.

Today, I made my first project of 2013, a tool holder for the Grizzly lathe.

Beautiful mike,
How many tool holders did you make?

Beauty's mike. How many did you make?

George, I only made one, I wasn't sure if it would work out or not. I can make more if you think they're good enough.
