The idea is similar to that of the http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/l...2685#post76775, but here the purpose is to adapt the accessories made for the http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/b...3325#post77840 (5/8” bench dog holes) to the workbench and the Workmate (3/4” bench dog holes). An example of these accessories is the http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/h...3537#post78246, which is shown in these pictures.
They were also made in the Unimat lathe, with discarded bronze plumbing pieces. All I had to accomplish is a 3/4” OD, and an ID of 5/8".
Thanks, Paul Jones. No, the carriage was driven by hand. After machining, the bronze was polished.
Alike the lamp bushing, these bushings could be machined from some round material, but besides I saved more than half of the lathe work, it is satisfactory to transform a waste element into something useful.
