    Lathe Carriage Stop

    After finishing the extended point live center and parting tool holder for my small lathe that Iíve been working on for the past several weeks I figured I would make the final attachment for this little beast by making a carriage stop, the machine came with a threading dial, follower rest, steady rest and change gears for threading but no carriage stop and there is no availability for one, I have had the need for this attachment several times in the past but always seamed to work around it, I donít use this little machine to often but itís nice to have everything you need when youíre doing a job.

    After doing a little measuring I came up with a design that I thought would suite the purpose, the body and clamp plate were made from 4140 annealed steel while the adjustable stop screw, thumb screw and clamping screw were made from 12L14 and the graduated dial from 6061 aluminum, this attachment has a ground finish for now but Iíll probably oil blacken it later on for rust purposes, this tool works and functions as intended and looks nice on the machine.


    I have included some manufacturing photos and a video making the graduated dial.


    As always thanks for looking and happy machining

    Doug

    Nice job as always. Great looking final product. Also one of my next projects, but I will make body from teflon. Already cut block 100 x 65 x 35 mm out of big round bar.

    rossbotics,

    Nice job, Doug! I'm sure that little attachment will like living on your lathe. I do some short production work and that would come in handy for some jobs.

    Thanks Dick
    The main reason I made it was for boring up to a shoulder, but it will come in nice for a production run as well

    rossbotics,

    Hi Doug,
    I actually have a 20" DRO mounted on the backside of my 7 x 16 Micromark mini lathe. That takes care of most of my depth needs, but it still would be nice to have a depth stop for those longer run jobs that become mundane. That is when I tend to get careless and accidents can happen. A positive stop is good insurance.

    Thanks for the video demonstration of your stamping jig Doug! Another beautiful build, simple and elegant! It's also cool to see how earlier tools help build other tools and so on...Pure HMT greatness.

    Great job Doug (we expect nothing less), I would not be without mine as I rarely use my topslide.

    DROs are fine and I often wish I had them but an accurate bed stop will let you concentrate on what is going on without having one eye on a counting down readout, I may yet fit one to my crosslide as that will be all I need to eliminate the backlash from readings.
