    Cranck for the compound slide

    While turning a taper with the compound silde, I was a bit fed up with this very small wheel that couldn't be turned continuously, leaving a poor finished surface.

    So I quickly did this :

    Works forward

    And backward.

    It works absolutely great, I can easily get a continuous chip all along the travel of the compound slide.
