Lathe Accessories rear mounted tool post
« on: June 20, 2019, 01:16:55 AM »
I just picked this up on the Bay a couple of nights ago for a good price.   Its set up for the light 10, so it's a 1/2 inch high, but made for the T slotted cross slide.   It fits like a glove!

I just need to shorten the base by 1/2" and I'm in like Flynn!

I recently made a small leadscrew that for it's diameter was quite long, so I had a make shift follower rest that bolted to the cross slide.    I'll make a more permanent one now, but but use the base of this as a starting point.  Double duty
