    Lightbulb Stops for the Sieg SX2.7

    I've made some hard stops for the Sieg milling machine. These use the T-slot in the front of the table.

    Up until now I've been using engineers clamps when I need a hard stop, these work very well.

    However, with the T-slot in the front of the table this is crying out for a better solution

    My version for the Taig Mill

    The fixed rectangular block in the middle has been replaced with a cylinder to minimize contact area and increase accuracy. It screws into an existing threaded hole on the mill.

    If the slot is there it is surprising that it did not come equipped.

    The Taig mill and lathe come with all sorts of T-slots and dovetails for user add-ons. The price is kept low by having the user build what he needs, rather than buying what the average user might want.
