What a great setup William, your shop is what I aspire to have, one day, in the distant future 😆
It’s nice, and inspirational to see what you have accomplished in such a short time and the knowledge that you have earned.
I told you I would be nice 😆March 2, 2014 at 5:42 pm #55990
A really professional shop – and video testimonial for yourself as-well-as Bob. I am speechless!

How did you get the microscope focal point close enough to the lathe to be usefull? It looks like I would have to get mine to with 2.5″ which would foul my QC tool rest. Are you comming into the front of the lathe?
That’s a nice setup.
TomMarch 3, 2014 at 3:17 pm #55992
Tom, it is set at the proper height as you see it, it is about a 5″ focal point. exactly as you say is why I invested in these 2 microscopes as they give the room needed. I do have a amscope that I had initially used over the watchmakers lathe, I use that now for other applications. I havent had the time to try it yet but I was thinking about using mirrors in the background and sides to get views from other angles, not sure if it will work or not? WilliamMarch 3, 2014 at 5:19 pm #55993
I have an AmScope too. That;s kind of what I was thinking – that I needed something with a longer focal point. So, two questions…
1) What type of microscope are you using for the lathe?
2) What type of articulating arm that you are using?

Tom, take a look at page 2 very bottom of my shop, shows 2 of the microscopes I use over the lathe, WilliamMarch 3, 2014 at 5:41 pm #55995Bob TascioneModerator

Thanks again for sending me that video William! You did a beautiful job on it. I think visitors to the site will enjoy your shop tour and will like hearing that tools and machines can be purchased at reasonable prices if they search around a bit and get creative like you’ve done. Really cool video!

Very good job on the video. Now I’m going to show my wife so I can justify my watch tool spending sprees!March 15, 2014 at 5:11 pm #56001
