chuck stop results

A week or so back I enquired here with a turning question - how to repeatedly locate bar stock pieces in lathe for a small batch job. I got some good suggestions. I cobbled together a stop that sits in that spindle bore. Pics posted to the dropbox - it aint prettty but it works fine for what I need! r.

=========== Thanks for closing the loop.

Nice Job.

My Uncle Schlomo was fond of saying, "Pretty is as pretty does."

You have nothing to be ashamed about, that's a nice job!

It looks good. Anyone who spends much time prettying up a jig doesn't have enough work to do. I am kind of attached to the shop's collet setup, great for repetitive jobs
