    Default Who uses a Parting/Cut-off slide on their HLV-H

    I believe My lathe must of had one on
    it. There are 3 screws missing on the
    spindle nose where it must have been.

    Do you like using it or are you better
    off with a parting blade in a tool post?

    I used one on a turret lathe and liked it. Not sure if it would be in the way on the HLV-H. I guess you would have to pull it off to install a chuck.

    I use one on my DSM-59 the holes are threaded 1/4-28.
    Advantages of the cutoff slide over a tool in the tool post.
    1. If you are making several parts, the cutoff is already mounted, no tool change needed, in many cases.
    2. The cutoff works better on the back of the slide mounted upside down, not possible on the HLV. The chips fall off the tool.
    3. The Vert cutoff, the chips fall clear of the cut better than sliding back on the cutoff blade. This would be the only option on the HLV.

    I would get the proper screws in the empty holes to prevent the nose ring from coming loose when you least expect it.

    I use one on an hlvh, very handy for repetitive stuff that is within its capacity and geometry to be cut off near the spindle nose. Not extremely useful for one-offs. With the cutoff slide, normal tool post, rear tool slide, and tail stock, 4 min operations/tools are possible with the hlvh. The slide requires longer cap screws than the standard ones used in the spindle cap.
    The rear tool slide is very handy, requires the riser and slide to which tool blocks are mounted (including upside down cutoff tools, etc). The rear riser also accepts the lever operated "taper slide".
