Will this turret index on each retraction or will you need to index it manually Ray?
Try here Ray, the prints are reasonable. They had the prints for my 9X20.
Ray, are you gonna make a crank and gear to run on your rack gear to move the turrett? Also if i had to err on the height id make it a tad high. Ive read somewhear that new lathes, the tailstock is a couple tenths high to allow for wear.
One other question, ive never ran a turrett lathe so i have no clue how they are attached to the ways. I would have to assume they would have roller bearings like alot of carriage's have. I would think just a hold down like a regular tailstock would have too much movement. I like this build so please dont mistake my curiosity as anything different.
