    Lathe Hand Brake

    Hi, I would like to show you a mod I did to my lathe foot brake. Sometimes I just wasn't in the right position to stop my lathe by foot quickly so I added a hand bar above the foot brake that is much easier to apply. This has made it so much faster and safer to stop my lathe. Thanks for looking.
