    920N Jet Lathe Tailstock Wrench

    I've had my Jet 9 x 14 for almost twenty years.

    I finally got smart a few years ago and cut down a ratchet wrench to make tightening and loosening the tailstock bolt much easier.

    You will notice this wrench has a lever to change from lefty loosey to righty tighty. That is key to making this work.

    When I cut this down I wrapped the wrench with electrical tape. I will pull it off and redo it with shrink tubing when I get a chance.
