Has anyone ever built a lever operated tail stock runner attachment? Just curious…

I have not, would you make it with a micrometer stop? Been thinking of making a assortment of tailstock pivot runners, either like Bob has on his videos or like the ones originally made for the watchmakers lathe. Just need to see if I can purchase some extra time, anyone have some for sale? WilliamAugust 13, 2013 at 3:21 pm #53909
I suppose that would make it a lot more functional.

I have thought about making my own Tom but have as yet to get my hands on an original one to see how it is done, I cant see how it can be that difficult. If I ever get around to trying it I will post up the results

I’ve watched a video by this guy before. Wow – he’s really good. I’d like to learn to cast myself, but I just don’t have the time. However, I can see where that would be a real plus when it comes to building your own tools. My idea was much simpler – just a simple lever attachment for my existing tail stock to use as a drill/reamer feed.
I’ve never seen so much done with so little. Now – I’m disheartened.
Thanks for the great link and the great advise.
