Hi there, Fluted Chamber, Eugene and Gary,
Thank you for your posts.
Fluted Chamber, are you in the UK? I've spent my working life in the UK electrical and electronic engineering industries and I've never seen conduit clips like the one in your picture. I have seen clips like that for mounting large hi-power wirewound resistors.
Eugene, the tools I'm planning to mount behind the lathe are all items that, of necessity, require the lathe to be stopped before they're fitted. The 'wall-zone' concerned is behind the tail-stock end of the lathe - the motorising unit & counter-shaft clutch take up most of the space behind the head-stock end.
Gary, the tools to which you linked are clones of the Terry tool-clips I mentioned in my original post. I do have a stock of them in various sizes and I shall use them for such items as the draw-bar for my Clarkson chuck and the 'bumper-bar' I use to expel Morse Taper items from the head- or tail-stock.
I just have a yen to use Wesco clips for Wesco oil cans.
but I've recently filled the ML7 QC Gear-box with SAE 30 oil using one of these:
It did the job fine but now it's an oily fluff & grit magnet!!
How do you guys store yours when it's off-duty? I suppose I could put it in a polythene bag and sneak it into the cupboard under the kitchen sink!
