Fig. 1—Detall» of Lathe is made of a piece of strap iron, bent and drilled as shown. It is held together by means of a small machine screw and a knurled nut. The tee should have a slot cut in it about one-half its length and it should also have one bead filed away so that the clamp will fit tightly over it.
The hand rest is made from a tapering elbow, a tee and a forging. The forging can be made by a blacksmith at a small expense. Both the lower tees of the hand-rest and the tail-w stock should be Fig. t w provided with screw clamps to hold them in place.
The pulley is made of hardwood pieces, % or 1 in. thick as desired. It is fastened to the spindle by means of a screw, as shown in Fig. 2, or a key can be used as well.
Care must be taken to get the tail-
stock center vertically over the bed, else taper turning will result. To do this, a straight line should be scralchca
