Helps a lot Daryn. I figured from work I used to do before retirement that would be the case. I have always been one that lighter cuts and more of them was a better way to go anyway especially on a smaller lathe.
Jan could you post a picture of your clamps for the compound slide? I also talked with another gentleman who had the same problem you stated but he said taking light cuts like 10 thousandths instead of 30 or 40 thousandths helped. I had thought about stop blocks to hold it in place or to keep it from moving but will wait till it gets here to see.
