Scott's Atlas / Craftsman 101.07403 12x36" Lathe, modifications and projects. Stone Mountain, GA Unique Visitors:

This came with the lathe, I did not make it.

Attachment is made from 3" steel stock, 2 1/4" high.

Slot is 3/8" with set screws from the side to hold cutting tool.

The cutting tool was several 3/8 cutting tools welded together to form the shape and cut to hold the insert.

There is also a hole drilled in the side to accept a 3/8" bar to use as a handle.

.Bottom is center bored to match the post on the cross slide.

There are two holes drilled for a clamp. There are two pins (one is missing) with an angled end. The holes are drilled to match the pin size (1/4"). Then drilled larger and threaded.

 Detail of the pins showing the angled end.
Decided to try out the attachment. It does not fit the post on the cross slide well as the hole is too big. It worked ok though.
