Very nice!

Looks like a well thought out part.

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!

Check my previous posting on this thread, no it was not really thought out the first time, but I did better on the third go around :shock: . The only problem is I need to check the scale clearance every time I remove and attached the follow rest :roll: , so far this is the second time I’ve attached it (and they both have only been to test this).


I cut a sample out of aluminum because I have a lot of it and it cuts quick, then once it worked I made it out of CR steel I only had 4x4x12 and I had to cut it down to 3x3x2 before machining. I’m thinking now about making my own follow rest that would attach in a quick and solid connect without needing to check the scale clearance :) . But that is for a later day, right now I’m dealing with a theft from my garage, they took my welder, plasma cutter and the top chest of my tool box, one of my neighbors who I talked with alot saw the hole thing but did not call the police :evil:

The best times were behind one of Al's engines
