    Lew---I have a whole bunch of computer files on all these "projects". I save them to computer discs. I keep the 3D cad models and the digital photographs and any tech write-ups that I do. Its amazing how darn many I've accumulated over the last two years.----Brian

      I do have 44 years of designing machinery and building professional quality hotrods behind me,
      Wonder why it is that the old chestnuts are the best

      An observation by some who DON'T have your vast experience causes such embarrasment, ----Sad.

      Regards Ian.

        Ian- Am I supposed to bend over and worship Brians feet because he has 44 years experience?? And it is supposed to cause me embarrassment to question his design?? I don't freakin think so! Just cause someone was designing things for 44 years does not impress me. If they produce good designs and ideas, yes that is impressive. Yes, everyone has a brain fart now and then, me included. I can admit that, and I believe Brian has in this case and made his design stronger. But am I going to be embarrassed to question the design of a guy who had been doing it for 44 years? No way, I am gunna tell it like I see it. I did not see any disrespect being shown to Brian when myself and a few others suggested that he beef up his bracket. When he tried out his design, he actually did make a stronger bracket. And you are whining because a few of us questioned Brians 44 years of designing things? Well cry me a river. 44 years means nothing to me. I have worked with a few guys who had been designing for about as long, and their stuff was total trash. If they were under me, I would have fired them. Experience or not. A good working design is what counts. If the design can be tutored or mentored into a capable product, the end result is what counts. But if you are gunna play Mother Teresa and try and guilt us into feeling like we just drowned a sack of kittens in the river, you have another thing coming.

          Uhh.., excuse me Doozer, but I think you're mis-interpreting Circlip's point (by, like maybe about 180 degrees!)

              I'm sorry you think I hate you Brian, because I don't.
              I hate Ian acting like the guardian of the free world.

                    Being well known for "Not being able to leave well enough alone" I decided that since I had room for pretty knurled finger knobs, I would make some.----Thus justifying the money I spent to buy a knurler which has never been put to any practical use since I bought it! I had a piece of 3/4" "mystery metal" laying around, so I drilled it out to 5/16" diameter, turned down the heads of the 1/4" shcs. for a press fit, then silver soldered things together. I drilled the hole all the way though, so if I need to I can still tighten the shcs. with an allen wrench.

                      Why are the adjustable stops that long ?

                        Because when the table is centered instead of cranked all the way to the left, I wanted them to stick down far enough for easy access.

                          So what thickness did you settle on for that bracket (the controversial 'red' part)?
                          It looks thicker than 1/8" in that last picture.

                          Functionality aside, wherever space permits, a beefier part usually just looks more visually appealing to me. But that's just me. Sort of gives me a feeling of comfort or security I guess.

                          I do like the addition of the knurled bolt heads. I'd thought about that earlier; just the convenience.

                            Id make the whole thing as big and beefy as possable after seeing my lathe carriage able to bump my carriage stop and move it with very little effort whatsoever if your not uber careful cranking the carriage, remember your stoping a big table that glides like skaters on ice with all the same momentium

                              Obviously, you missed post #39---I remade the plate from 1/4" stock.

                                Hmmm. After re-reading post #39 (3 or 4 times actually), I see no mention of that piece. I just see a discussion or the knurled pieces.

                                Oh well, doesn't really matter. As I said it just looks thicker in that picture, but without some reference it's hard to tell, even with my carefully calibrated eyeballs.
