    Sherline Lathe Ball Head DRO stand with brass base

    Working toward completion of my "inside shop" I added a brass based ball head articulating DRO stand for the lathe.
    It may be positioned anywhere on the table for best visibility and chip avoidance.
    Made with a 3.125" hex brass base about 1" thick for plenty of weight.
    Tripod ball head cost a whopping $8.00 on line.
    I think it will be just the ticket to replace the bent screen bracket that is supplied as standard with the lathe.

    Cheers, JR
