    Default Aloris lathe spindle stop - OK?

    Aloris Universal Lathe: Spindle & Collet Stop S-2

    Anyone have one of these? Is there something better? I need one for my 10 EE for longer parts. I have collet stops and a stop that locates on the spindle taper, but those limit max part length. Yes, I could roll my own, but time is money.

    If it works How I read the description, I made a simple one quickly with all thread.

    Found a rubber plug thingy at Home Depot, put washers on each side, and tightened the nuts on the allthread to enlarge the rubber, holding it tightly in the spindle bore.

    EDIT: it is a plug for testing or whatnot, has a big wingnut on it.

    a couple minutes on the belt sander made a good fit.

    I use one of the Aloris stops at work, they do quite nicely in the
    machine I run, plus I also use in in the indexer on the mill.
    I plan on making a larger size one for the other machines at work.

    I am sold. Thanks guys. I saw that Yuasa had something similar, but I found the Aloris on sale for way below list price on Aloris' website.

    Default DIY spindle stop

    Was looking for a cheap or DIY spindle stop. The main part would be an expandable mandrel. Found the perfect part at Harbor Freight (SORRY) A tail pipe expander: Search Results For "Tail Pipe Expander"

    My concern on these is steel on steel.

    With my rubber one, the rubber was trimmed to slip fit, the washers support the
    rubber on both sides to within 1/8" on the dia. (very little exposed/un-supported rubber) meaning I get good preload, and the device is not spongy
    in the long axis by any means.

    My concern with steel-on-steel is getting a good grip. The spindle is hardened
    for sure, and with winding up and rapid stopping, it taxes the stops grip.
