Spot the mistake
« on: March 24, 2023, 10:28:50 AM »
I have been getting used to using my new to me lathe , I had already made a mount so I can use the graver, and I thought next I would make a carriage stop but it needed to be a stop and a mount for the dial gauge well I was chuffed that what I had made was going to do the job until I fitted the dti  :doh: the carriage hits the mount before the full travel of the dti , so a slight modification is needed.

Could you make an extension for the DI plunger? Might be the easiest fix...
Cheers!

Yes AdeV
That was my thinking as extended pointers are freely available, although I could make one.
