Just been to collect the Viceroy Lathe. Fairly basic but it will do everything I want [probably]. Apart from the usual supply of chucks, MT adapters dial-gauges and 'normal' tools, there are some other odd items. I will post a link to some pics later.
Anyway there are 6 lathe tools which have a semi-circular groove machined into 2 opposing faces [one on each 'side' of the tool assuming the top and bottom of the tool are the faces which are normally clamped IYSWIM ?] there is a small tool holder [Myford] which these tools sit into and are adjustable in an 'arc'. Question is...what are they for? They have letters I,J,K,L,O,ES on them. Sorry to sound so numb but I am fairly new to making swarf
