Re: Adding turning length

JPG, You have followed me enough to know to know that I will ask others opinion, but I am always moving forward no manner what. I actually have a tail stock from an old Delta 1440. I tried mounting it on the short ways for my Nichols lathe and it fit perfectly. I have a 5' hiking staff that I am mak...

Re: Adding turning length

LONGER TUBES? I want to connect tubes to my existing unit with a third leg. Like this: /----\----\ Looks like the top two tubes can be linked, but would need an adapter to bridge the legs to connect the bottom tubes.

Adding turning length

I have been passing a fair number of turning jobs on to buddies with longer lathes. I thought I would add an extension to my Nichols lathe, but that requires a good fabricator and my guy is too busy with a big manufacturer to get my little job done. Has anyone connected an extra set of tubes and ano...

Re: Universal Tool Rest

I have one and it will accept other tool rests as long as the post is sized correctly. If you remove the articulating arm it becomes like most every other banjo/tool rest on the market so no problem there. My regular tool rest articulating arm cracked and a friend sold me his UTR since he had switch...

Dust Collection holders

Started on a dust hose holder years ago, but just reached that "do it now" moment recently and finished the holders. One mounts in the back hole of the carriage so hose is directly behind whatever you turn. The second one mounts in the miter slot. I needed dust collection for a power carvi...
