On day two, I machined the holder for my 2" tenths indicator with the dovetail on the back. It was the first real project for my shaper. I used a cutoff tool to make the slot in the end of the 1/2" dia bar. Then I cut the dovetail on each side. The first dovetail was too loose, so I turned it off on the lathe and did it again. Despite shapers having a reputation as being slow, making the dovetail actually went fairly quickly, even with the shaper on its slowest speed. I learned after the fact that when doing the dovetails I should have had my clapper box angled instead of in line with the tool slide. In this case it didn't seem to make any difference, but the reason is to provide clearance on the back stroke. I see there's a photo limit per message, so I'll post the photos of the completed holder in another message.
