A Top Slide for the Unimat 3

A Top Slide for the Unimat 3

This little topslide by D. Scroggins uses a novel approach to the dovetail slides. It first appeared in MEW issue 16, April/May 1993, more details can be found in the archive copy of this issue.

Intended for use on the Unimat 3, it should not be difficulty to adapt the design for use on any other small lathe. Perhaps one could even make a small vertical slide using the same design principles.

Thanks as always to Nick Farr for scanning this in.

Enjoy,

I must admit I found it impossible to understand whow the slides were made using the drawings, so I have uploaded the text as well, you will need to right click and view image to see them at a readable size.
