    Finished the second side table and tailstock tooling caddie. It swivels around the end of the lathe and tucks out of the way when not in use.

    What's holding up the caddy? I really like the trick of using short tubing cutoffs to make tray pockets.

    The caddie is held up by a piece of 1" cold rolled bar stock that was mitre cut and turned down to 5/8" that fits into the bronze socket shown in the first picture above. The bronze socket was pressed into the mounting arm for the side table. Here are a few more pics that should tell the whole story. IMG_1021.JPG IMG_1048.JPG IMG_1082.JPG
