Where a run of turned components is required from the lathe, this attachment will very quickly earn its keep. In fact, the device is fitted and removed so quickly that you will even save time when producing a single part!
This great new design allows for up to 6 separate axial carriage positions to be set on a rotating turret. Each stop can be adjusted with a vernier or slip gauges depending on the accuracy required. In action, the saddle can be wound along to a stop with certain and repeatable precision. The turret is then revolved to the next detent position to complete the next operation.
This attachment suits Myford's 7 Series lathes (Super 7, ML7) and fits to the right of the lathe's apron at the front of the bed. No modification to your lathe is required and the project is straightforward. The kit arrives with drawings and notes together with a single iron casting and all necessary bar materials. You will also need a No. 404 Woodruff Cutter (SP 1030).
