    Mini lathe change gear storage tree

    Couldn't be simpler, a piece of aluminum round turned down to fit the center hole of the gears, The rod is threaded into a circular aluminum base plate. Fits right in a drawer that I have my other lathe tools in.

    bobs409,

    Nice Idea Bob!! Way neater than having loose gears laying around and having to hunt for them.
