In a effort to cut down on the chips flying everywhere on my lathe, I made a chip guard that is attached to the carriage of my Craftsman 101.21200 (6x18 Mk2) lathe. When I had the carriage off to drill and tap for the ways wipers I previously made, I also drilled and tapped holes on the back of the carriage so I could mount an indicator. I am taking advantage of that to mount the chip guard.

Yes, I have one I made for the head too, but on longer parts, it did no good.
