Attachment For South Bend Lathe
Stan McDonald, Foxboro, Ontario: "Recently I was asked to cut some small diameter round stock using a lathe. The problem arose when I attempted to cut the thread. The pressure applied by the tool caused the material to bend out of the way. After some quick research, I came up with this attachment for my South Bend lathe.
"A conventional follower rest has bronze fingers which in time wear away, so I decided to make steel rollers on mine since they could be replaced if needed.
"It works so well I now sell the completed follower rest for $100 (U.S.) plus shipping."   Contact: Stan Mcdonald, 402 Mudcat Road, Foxboro, Ontario K0K 2B0 Canada (ph 613 968-9516; email: smcdonal@kos.net).
