  • Randy,

    That is a great looking taper attachment. I have been looking for plans to make one for my Nardini lathe.

    Do you have any plans that you may be willing to share?

    Thanks.

      Nice work,
      I am going to make one myself, but see some are dovetail ways and others are square like yours. Is there much difference between the 2 ? And would I just be waisting time doing it with dovetails ?
      My plan is to make a telescopic screw for the lead screw.

          How do you keep water out of the oil?

          • I got inspired by this third hand welding:
            http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/sho...ght=third+hand
            After using an improvised version I made one with scrap laying around. That's a great helper. Thanks for the tip

                I wish I could take credit for it, but Rob Wilson was the machinist that made it.

                  Totally agree, Rob has done some really great stuff and posted it on that forum. The work is a credit to him.

                      Dave,

                      Here's another view.

                      The lower slide is composed of flat bars, surface ground and bolted together to form square ways. The upper slide is similarly done. Since there's no tendency for the upper slide follower (or whatever it's called) to lift, I figured that a dovetail wasn't necessary. I don't see how dovetails would perform any better, and grinding them would have been very challenging with the equipment I had access to. I chose the easy way.

                      Speaking of challenges, building a telescoping lead screw sounds like a good one. I'll be eager to see what you come up with. Good luck!

                        Had many of these to make and decided to jig up to do so the photos should be self explanatory.

                            • Magnetic Plasma Cutting Guides--No Clamps Req'd

                              Can't say this is my idea but sure put it to good use. You can drop these in the middle of plate or sheet goods and whip down the edge. Made them in different lengths.

                              Rare Earth Magnet 3/4" dia holds these babies down tight but not tight enough that you can't pull them off by hand. They were a slight press fit into the holder.
