installed a quick change tool post on my 10x22 lathe. It required that
the steel T-nut be machined to fit the lathe, so I milled it off on
three sides to the width and thickness required.
Works great, couldn't be happier (wedge style) and I just picked up a
few extra tool holders.
Problem-- the swarf was all tiny long slivers of steel that seem to
find themselves stuck in my fingers every time I touch anything.
They're very, very thin and sharp, and maybe 1/8" or a bit longer.
How to avoid this? It's very annoying, and the oil I used has made
them stick everywhere, into the T-slots etc.
