    I appreciate the help given on this. I have run down the path of figuring out whether the QCTP mounted follow rest (FR) will work for my needs. It would if I am willing to deal with a few matters,...

    Cal,

    Excellent idea! That really helps and gives me options that were just not available otherwise. Now, I wish I had not already ordered the Aloris double holder. I'll still use it, though, as...

    I am having trouble visualizing what you suggest for the top of the holder. At least how it differs from what is already planned as far as mounting bolts to secure the base arm to the holder. I...

    I very much appreciate the help you've given. I like the notion of having a bona fida Monarch follow rest, either by buying or making one. But, time and money are a bit tight, precluding both at...

    That is very cool. That could work well with threading Acme, since the OD remains constant.

    Thanks,

    I am proceeding down the path of making one. I contacted HSM about getting a copy of Harry's article. They don't offer digital versions, so I cannot even see what he did.

    That one on eBay sold, but it would not fit my lathe anyway.

    I forgot to mention my lathe appears to have only two mounting locations. Most follow rests I've seen have three, so I am not sure...

    Need Follow Rest

    Greetings,

    I have a 1946 MG 10EE and need a follow rest. As far as I can tell, the carriage has two mounting points, one on the cross slide web and one on the far carriage arm.

    I've never used the taper function, but mine appears to be the same as labeeman's. Mine in a Newall DP700, two axis, carriage and cross slide. I am curious how the "touch"ing is done to maintain...

    Thanks, TheOldCar. Nice to see what it is supposed to look like. Makes me want to get mine fixed. I seldom cut precision tapers, so being able to set the TA by the lense reading would suffice for...

    I managed to get the TA set to a taper I wanted and found the same sort of backlash. My lathe has a two-axis DRO, carriage and cross slide. I was fussing with a dial indicator on the cross slide...

    Thanks. I'll be on the watch for that. I wonder what could be causing that.

    Thank you, Donie. That is progress. A little more information would be very helpful. Is adjusting the vernier just a matter of removing the cover? By what means is the vernier adjusted? And how...

    I appreciate the info on how to set up the TA very accurately and have implemented one method.

    But... there are times when "spot on" is not needed and attempting to make it so is just a waste...

    Thanks. That is interesting. It was only a short while ago that I started using that same type of technique for precisely milling angles and have not used it on the lathe, until now.

    I am in the same camp as Gordon. I agree completely with all that he said. I have a Sjogren 5C collet chuck for my 10EE but do not like it. I plan on getting a Bison keyed spindle mount 5C chuck....
