    So after making the handles it seemed time to make a carriage stop. Here are pics and dimensioned drawings.
    The round black locking pads are a very hard plastic that I tapped to accept 10-24 screw threads. After tapping them I put super glue around the edge of the cover and closed it so when they get screwed on to the threaded adjustment screws the cover won't pop open. Only 5 images allowed so 3 more will be in a following post.

      That stop would never answer my rough treatment. I tend to bump into stops. It might suffice to serve as a warning stop for a DTI set up. to keep from crashing a sensitive indicator. On my 13 in and 16 inch lathes, the stop gets snugged down with two 3/8 cap screws. And snugged down hard!.

      But, you may have a sensitive hand. Many times I wish I did. ;-)

        It works well on my Prazi SD300 mini lathe with a 5" swing. The stop on my Logan 10" is closer to what you use.
