Threading Cross Slide Stop
« on: August 25, 2018, 09:23:09 AM »
A while back I needed to thread 80 gas spuds for a burner made in Germany. I have done in the past and still do quite a bit of threading on the lathe, doing a one or two off pieces is relatively easy, but doing 80 or so in one setting is quite a chore. To help, I made a cross slide stop, to hopefully eliminate one of the possible variables. A cross slide stop to bring the cross slide back to the same position every time.

The stop was a 20 minute job (grandson did the paint job), while somewhat simple or crude, works perfectly. It bolts to the carriage assembly, using existing holes.

GNAP,

Iíve been trying to come up with a simple cross slide stop that doesnít require drilling and tapping the carriage or the cross slide. I think you may have just solved my problem. Thanks!
