    Quick Mini Lathe Tail Stock Upgrade

    That little plastic handle really was out of place on my tail stock. I bought a 5" cast iron one from Grizzly and now I can give it a spin and it will make many rotations from inertia and save my old wrist. Soooo much better than the plastic one. I think I will make one to replace the one on the carriage just to get rid of the plastic. (next project?)

    Cheers, JR
