  • Tailstock indicator holder

    Here's my version. The bracket is a quick release and can be removed or installed without disturbing the tool in the ram socket. Somebody asked why I didn't go digital, I just like watchin the needle. The sliding indicator holder rides on a keyed shaft(its on the bottom), that keeps it in its proper position.

      Daryl - is your wife going to let you put it in the living room when you get it finished? It is too beautiful to have in the shop where it might get scratched!

        Yeah, I've already dinged it up, so the karma says its now ready for use. Haven't quite got it finished yet, but been makin chips and it really is a wonderful machine to use.

          And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
          You will find that it has discrete steps.

            Nice solution Daryl.
            Is that the threading drive to the right on the lathe if so neat idea, never seen the like.

                  Many thanks guys. My ego gets the the best of me, so here is a pic from a while back. I have one more trick to finish and then there will be some more photos. The paint on the carriage is indeed the same as the rest of the lathe, just doesn't look like it in this pic.

                            Nice job. I am aways envious of the Monarch owners and thier fine lathes. I am impressed on the workanship on the tailstock indicator holder, great job on the lathe and the holder.
