Making a lathe carriage stop pt. 3

In the final video of the series, I finish machining the stop, only to find out I won’t be able to use the thumb screws i purchased after all. After recovering from the thumb screw issue, i demonstrate how I lap parts, and how the stop functions when in use. Now that it’s all said an done, I think this was a good project for me to break in the new mill with, as it let me learn what the limits of the machine are.

    Do you have a set of drawings with dimensions. I would like to make one for my Grizzly G070914x40 Gunsmith Lathe. I really like the one you have designed of all the ones I have looked at. Thanks Frank

      Hi Frank,

      I don’t have any high quality drawings, but I did fine these two that should give you a pretty good start.

      2) holes.jpg

      Most likely you will have to customize them pretty heavily do to the size and difference between our 2 lathes.

        Ok and thanks. I have printed them off and hopefully I can adapt them to my lathe. Frank
