Lathe Carriage Stop
« on: December 18, 2018, 07:11:55 AM »
Hi I bought this carriage stop recently with a view to fitting on the bed of my Raglan 5 inch lathe which has "knock off" on the saddle.
I think this component is really designed to be part of the saddle on whatever lathe it belongs, I think it may be for a Colchester but unsure.
I bought it because it was there, I think it is new as it had protective grease on it.
As the peg on my saddle is very short it will not reach the lower stops and the peg is flush when pressed in it would need an intermediate part to work.
So can anybody clarify what make and model it fits, if it goes on the saddle and any other comments please.
I apologise if pictures are wrong size

Regards Phil

It might help if you resize your images.

Hi Sorry not quite sure what the issue is with the images? I have been accused before of them being too large, these are a touch small, but go to full screen if opened up. please feel free to assist me in getting it right Phil

800 x 600 is the preferred size. It gives very adequate detail without gobbling up too much of Eric's server space, and allows the photo to be viewed on most platforms.

If the picture is too large on some platforms the 'slide bars' are off the screen and inaccessible so your glorious offering cannot be seen in full anyway :clap:

As an example here is a 'screen grab' of your last picture as displayed:

Hi Sorry to be whatever, on my iMac have three perfect images 30mm x 38mm under each other 350 kb approximately each, I do not really see why they appear any different to others as they are in the Madmodder site.
I am interested what is going wrong, but at the same time irritated why things become so difficult, I will try and resize, probably end up looking at a dot on my screen LOL

On my machine it looks virtually identical to the first ones, any good for anyone else?

The resolution is 1512x2016. The recommended is 800x600 for this site.

Thank you maybe I am getting there, might have been easier to sling the carriage stop over the hedge into next door LOL

Well done Phil, I know it's a pain when we bleat on about picture sizes, but it needs to accommodate a wide range of platforms so all can enjoy your work.

Thanks Andrew :thumbup:
I bought an iMac out of despair with windows 8, but of course it has its own foibles it works brilliantly across my apple devices, but to be fair it sometimes causes problems with people on other systems.
Either way looks like I'm sorted!

So back to the questions that accompanied the pictures Phil

It looks like it mounts on a bracket at the hex end , on the clubs Mk1 Little John there is a bracket on the bed below the headstock with a 3/8" rod , this may be an after market mod .

On the one that I had on a Colchester Student a few eons ago, the side of the apron was tapped 1/2" UNC, and the stop bolted onto it directly. But it had a 'keeper nut' on it to stop it falling apart in storage. Are you sure that your hex doesn't just unscrew and the male bit mount the device?

The spring loaded ball bearing makes it fun fitting :)

Do you have the other half of the device that mounts on the bed?

Hi Andrew
The nut on mine is holding everything together, I have a feeling something probably wants to leap out from inside.
There is a loose pin on the mounting face and 2 pin holes marked L and R, I imagined this unit "interacted" with and tripped the saddle drive, but from your comments it's perhaps nothing more than an indexable set of stops that mount on the saddle, and a bed stop.

Rather than the other way round where the indexible bit is on the bed.

And no I do not have the bit that mounts on the bed, come to that I don't have the lathe either, It was just one of those useful looking bits that followed me home.

The key on the photos is the width. You went down to 600 wide but are 'allowed' 800 if you want which still fits on a normal ie cheaper small laptop screen. Vertical isn't so much of an issue and it scrolls more easily but it is polite to crop unnecessary background to save space and bandwidth for those still on lousy country twisted pair internet at only 3Mbps.
I admire your reticence in not taking it apart. I'd have had it in bits the first hour.  :med:

Hi All
Regarding photo sizes, I am joined several "Simple Machine" forums
One of these has recently introduced a feature that resizes the photos automatically
The poster can then rotate the images if required,
Orientation of the photos can change when sent from some phone cameras to computer where they appear normal, and then rotate when sent to the forum ??
This feature would save a lot of issues on this one,
link below to the forum topic in question
