    Congratulations Christophe,

    The whole indexing system you created is well designed and made to be universal for many types and makes of lathes. I wish I had something similar on my 12" swing lathe and could have used it for a recent project. Thank you for the creative ideas.

    Regards,
    Paul

    I was wondering the same thing and guessed it must be to wedge the shaft in the arbor hole maybe?

    This is the same mechanism used to position the handlebars on a bicycle - at least on the ones I had as a kid.
