They have to be some sort of rest for a turning part as the fingers have wear resistant tips but for what machine? I can't see them being used on a lathe as I don't think they could adjust to changing radius. I got them with a large lot of other fixtures and stuff at auction. This shop did a lot of grinding so I wonder if they might have service on some grinding machine that I'm not familiar with.

Thanks,

Doug

Doug,

What is the height of the green one from table surface to center of horizontal finger?

I may be interrested if it is for sale.

Or, I can sell you the grinder for it :)

Thanks,

Glenn
