Re: Mystery Knob on Logan Lathe tailstock

Re: Shop smith 10er verital mill conversion

Reminds me of the number of people who attempt to use a common drill press as a milling machine. Can't deny that they achieve some level of success, but I know of no one who is happy with the results. Again, a lack of proper design and rigidity assure they won't be. BTDT. I managed to do some thing...
