    For the non-woodworkers out here, were those made by combining dowels of different sizes (if so, how) or by cutting up one dowel and turning the ends down (if so, how)?

    I keep all my tool heads locked up in a bench drawer, but being able to store them like that seems kind of cool.

    It looks good. You might want to put it on the center pin to prevent it from getting tipped over.

    Forgot to add, even with it on the end beg, it feels like it would take a lot to knock it over. The base is really stable.

    Mine felt that way until I put a full quick change assembly on it. My pegs are a little less diameter than the Dillon toolstand, and allows the assembly to tilt. :crying:

    Nice job. Even got the colour right.

    I made mine over 6 years ago - aluminium.

    Thanks, I kinda stole your design from Enos's forum. Wish I knew how to weld, some day. Until then the wood will work. Still waiting on the press though.

    Thanks but it really isn't my idea. I saw a post on Enos forum for the 650 stand and just run with it.
