This soundly designed lathe attachment provides a true vertical cutting action, unlike the woodworker's 'rocking beam' scroll saw. The attachment powers most 6" tension blades (tungsten carbide rod saw, coping saw, junior hacksaw), machine files and jig/sabre saws through almost any material: a god-send for engine, loco and clock builders.
The Ø6" tilting table, with 4 5/8" of throat, accommodates all manner of work, including profiling, piercing, chamfering and finishing. With an adjustable stroke of up to 2 1/8" and running at up to 700 strokes/minute this attachment will save you hours!
Quickly set up on the cross-slide, the attachment sits at a comfortable working height, in a very well lit area. Since the slide bar descends below the base of the main casting, you should check that there is at least 1¾" of free space between your cross-slide and bed or that there is a gap between the front and rear sheaves of at least 1¼" (as Myford 7 Series).
The kit arrives with all necessary material including 3 iron castings for the standard, swivel bracket and flywheel, a great aluminium casting for the bow and a sheared Ø6" steel blank for the table.
