110-1351 Lathe implementation of functional auto feed stops or disengage mechanism.


Jul 24, 2019
Has anyone looked at the addition of a travel stop, electrical shutoff or preferably mechanical shaft rotation to disengage to neutral?
Thinking of possible additions to left and right ends of carriage that will act directly to rotate shaft from either feed direction to neutral.
Also need stationary stops to be moveable and clamp to front V way.

I have one designed but not yet executed. It uses a solenoid to release a seer which "fires" a bolt which disengages the half nuts. The solenoid is triggered by an electrical contact which can be made from either side of the carriage. The half nuts can be released manually as well. Here is the design to date.
