In an attempt to maximize work space, Eric Tate of Tate Machine Works took to finding a new place for his Tormach Jog Shuttle.

And the Shuttle Stow was born.

Tate recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to sell his Tormach Approved Accessory. His accessory offers a convenient way to stash your jog shuttle without completely losing access to it. The design prevents accidental selection of axes, step, and jog wheel movement, minimizing accidental movement of your machine.

Tate uses his PCNC 1100 to produce the Shuttle Stow, which is machined from 6061 Aluminum.

Check out Tate’s Kickstarter while there’s still time.
