that mounts on the cross slide. I would like to hear how useful
this accessory is. This capstan has several limitation over a regular
bed turret. It does not have a stop; so it depends on using a
carrage multi-stop. You need to rotate the turret and the stop
seperately which seems like a real PIA. Also the myford multi-stop
has a range of only 4.5 inchs.
As a side note, I have a rockwell lathe with a real bed turret
that doesn't get used because its quite heavy and difficult to
get on and off. I cannot leave it on because I Have a short bed lathe.
Seems more logical to use the rockwell turret but I like collecting
myford accessories too!
