    Default Overrarm support, 4

    I’m setting a WS 4 up for a permanent job. Is it worth looking for a overran support? Do they help that much? The type that attaches to the head stock or the tool holder?

    Head mounted bars are always "in the way" in one position

    Turret mounted bars are "variably" in the way

    I would imagine EITHER would help a ram type machine being worked hard

    One guy somewhere has posted that he ran a WS and the ways were wore down horrendously , but the procedure still worked the whole thing hanging up off on the bar Bar support stuff. I am looking for BS stuff for #3's seems hard to find. Certainly could be shop made......
