Thread: Myford M Type tailstock alignment

Hi Nick,

Thank you yes I have found plenty of these but I'm after a longer one around 12". Have found one in Ali this morning but I shall not be buying that, must be a steel one somewhere?!

Regards Chris.

Edge Technology sell one. Not cheap but a nice bit of kit. I’d lend you mine but shipping from NL to you would make it cheaper for you to buy one yourself Chris.

Thread: What Did You Do Today 2020

I almost melted today, we have now had 8 consecutive days with temperatures above 30 C here in the Netherlands. This has never happened before. The previous record was 6 consecutive days above 30 and that dated from 1975.

For"standard" angles I usually find a set of these makes it easy:

Good recommendation, I have the same set, very handy. Arc sell that set too, but for less

Loving this thread as I suspect many are Pete, any chance of some new photo’s?

Thanks Gray, you did say you needed the occasional prod cheeky

Nice of you to start this thread Graham. Always handy to see other FB-2 machines and exchange ideas.

i have made Grahams most excellent spindle lock.

Funniest thing I’ve read in weeks!

Looks beautiful so far, looking forward to some more updates,


Thread: Parting off
08/06/2020 17:23:42

Is the tool exactly perpendicular to the work? Is the tool height correct? Is the carriage locked? Is the work not spinning too fast? Are you using enough lubricant? Are you feeding the tool at the correct rate?

I am by no means an expert on parting and have had my share of mishaps but these are the questions to answer.

Good luck,


Thread: Tailstock die holder

Nice work. I once bought a tail stock die holder and regretted not making it myself. Hope to see yours completed soon,


Thread: Reading...

I learned a lot by watching youtube video’s. There are several excellent “creators” who have made videos on lathe basics. Easier to digest than text from a book but that might be my inherent laziness shining through

Thanks, there's a long way to go! It;'s nice to know there is such a wealth of knowledge here and (more importantly) people willing to share it!

Thanks Bear, good tip, I have enough Delrin lying around to mess around with.

Loving your progress Garth, you seem to be doing everything right! Quick question though, how do you get all of your photos to be oriented correctly? I have the occasional one that turns out rotated when I upload it to my album. Sorry to hijack this lovely build thread with a question.

@NDIY, yes I had a half dead center to support the work.

@Martin, I initially tried to establish 30 deg by using a precision ground angle plate from a set I bought from Arc but couldn’t get it exact so reverted to a direct plunge method. Your way sounds logical, wish I had thought of that! I find setting the angle on a Myford compound difficult to get exactly right.

Thanks again,


05/06/2020 14:34:28

Martin, good idea. I have not examined the insert yet but will do that, thanks. I will also pull it back into the holder a bit more. No reason at all for the over hang.

Mick, yes this was a plunge cut. I used copious amounts of oil As you can see in the photo but will cut them at the proper angle once I have discovered how to accurately establish the 29,5 deg recommended for a Metric thread. Thanks for the tips,

That is a pic I borrowed off this site. I'm not sure who's it is and all I did was added "this one" to show the appropriate gear.


05/06/2020 06:51:25

No worries David, I am not at the level to have properly understood what you said anyway so no harm done. Thanks anyway though.

@Steviegtr this is the wheel to place the 33t or 34t gear. Because it is a bit bigger than the gear normally in that position you have to drop the banjo a little bit lower. This means you have to make a simple drop arm.


04/06/2020 21:10:17


I took all of your advice to heart and had another go today. Total succes, even pleased with the fit. This is not a functional part, merely a test cut to validate Brian Woods drop arm and 33T/34T set up. Worked like a charm.

Thanks for all the tips,
