Not much but it works.

The hoist is a mobility chair lift for a car trunk,12 volt,500# lift.

Great idea! Sure beats the way I've been doing it ( under a bench.... uggh )

I've been thinking of making a 'chuck tree' for some time but I'm not sure it's the most space efficient way of storing them.

I also have wondered if it's the best thing for the bore of the chuck to be suspended that way - I know it will probably never matter but....theoretically it could egg-shape the ID

I covered posts with rubber hose,and what is it going to do, eggshape the chuck?

The collet chuck is a jacobs L00 mount and I have all flex round collets and several square and hex collets for it.I don't use it much but it is great when needed.

My L00 mount w.Rohm 4 jaw is sitting on the floor. About 100lbs. My mount job was as perfect as my skills would allow.

I don't think hanging them on a tree would be as bad as dropping them on the ways, on the floor and rolling them around. Especially for the mount.

I got a shelf over my lathe w/stereo and fridge.. A hook under it would lift the chucks, as soon as I figure out a happy way to hang a hoist.

A wheelchair lift huh?

If JohnS: had only talked me into making the mill crane longer.. It is 3 feet of the lathe.
