|Scott's Craftsman 101.07403 12x36" Lathe, modifications and projects.||Unique Visitors:|
This came with the lathe, I did not make it.
Attachment is made from 3" steel stock, 2 1/4" high.
Slot is 3/8" with set screws from the side to hold cutting tool.
The cutting tool was several 3/8 cutting tools welded together to form the shape and cut to hold the insert.
There is also a hole drilled in the side to accept a 3/8" bar to use as a handle.
.Bottom is center bored to match the post on the cross slide.
There are two holes drilled for a clamp. There are two pins (one is missing) with an angled end. The holes are drilled to match the pin size (1/4"). Then drilled larger and threaded.
|Detail of the pins showing the angled end.|
|Decided to try out the attachment. It does not fit the post on the cross slide well as the hole is too big. It worked ok though.|
