    Brain thanks for the post, I have the Lathmaster LMT25 which is the same as yours and I will put in on the list of things to do.

    Thanks

    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.
    I'll have to take my eyeballs in for recalibration--Steve is correct---it was post #29.---Brian

    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

    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.

    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.

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