    <font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">I've been trying to find space to mount poly bins because I love being able to just see inside them when I'm looking for bolts, nuts, etc.. I mounted a bunch of poly bins behind my lathe on the wall:
    How do you like them?

    I was going to do something similar. Then I figured that they were basically swarf collectors, and that I wasn't going to want to stretch out over the lathe to grab anything.

    As for putting it BACK, that has to be easy, or else it generally won't happen.
    CNC machines only go through the motions.

      The bins work great. I haven't turned anything yet with the bins there so I;m not sure how many chips (if any) will be tossed into the bins, but it doesn't matter to me. I keep all of my bolts, nuts, washers, dry wall screws, and rivets in those bins.. I just reach over and grab however many I need.
