It's a little one....1 3/4 diameter with a 3/8 diameter shank...so a bit small..but anything I'll be doing with it would be under .187 or 5mm so....
I'll just make up a bushing for it for the turret tailstock.

Will do Bill.....Its getting near time to do the fitting of the turret to the lathe.    I'm hopeful that the slight lowering of the Headstock and Tailstock will conincide with the current height of the bed mounted turret.   If it's a bit high, I can scrape it in...if it's low....well...I have to rebore the turret and sleeve it.

Nice acquisition Dave,

I picked up a mint Greenfield 5/16-DS earlier this year and have been collecting chasers for it. Like I told my friend it is like a piece of jewelry.

I really would like to find a set of 1/8" NPT chasers that are ground for brass and bronze.

Here is a shot of mine.

I also picked this up...but I think I'll be reselling it....I don't think it's really the right item.

The 5C toolpost holder is for a BXA system...too big for my lathe.

So I'll be separating it and selling separately.

I believe the 12-28 is a standard thread used on SB gib screws.

Very nice pick up Dave.

Pardon my ignorance - one size looks a bit different, is it a typo or a real size I haven't heard of?

.117-43 ??

What is that one used for?

Nice find Dave, I hope you picked them up for a good price. The ones I have seen are nice and pricey.

Well ....I've been looking for a while for a deal along this line...the times I'll need this capacity will be low...but when you do ...it's sure going to be nice.

I may take on some screw machine work to pay for this stuff....we'll see.
