I made this when I was just starting out.
I don't have the lathe it went with so don't need it anymore.
If a new guy wants it let me know.

I do not need one, but you might want to call out what lathe it was designed for.

That is a fabulous little stop.

It was for an Acra 13x40.
Typical Chinese made.
45° V.

That is a very nice looking stop. I have been thinking about trying to make one for my South Bend 9" but have not figured a way to do all the machining as I don't have a mill. I would love to have it if it would work.

Well done sir.
If I was in the Red Wing Minnesota area, I would love to have it.
It appears you did a fine job for just starting out.
You took some time and there is pride built in to that stop.

Thanks so much DDickey. Got the stop and have got it modified to fit my South Bend 9". I think I may make a jamb nut for it as I have a tendency to bump things as I'm working plus it gives me another simple piece to make on the lathe.

Not a perfect fit but it works. I cut a little to deep on one side of the V but it clamps down tight. I had to lengthen the threads on the bolts and shorten the bottom clamp a little. Works great though. Again, thanks to another great member on here.
