      Hi David,
      The photos for the Mill mods are in the Photos browser titled 'Z Axis depth stop', at http://tech. ph.groups. yahoo.com/ group/X_Series_ Mills/photos
      I do have some photos of c3 Lathe in the Photos of mlathemods also titled 'Sieg 2a' at http://ph.groups. yahoo.com/ group/mlathemods /photos/browse? b=33&m=t&o=5
      I tried to put some photos on the MiniMill Group but seems not to want me to post any?
      I find these groups unusually irksome for navigating!

      My UK Axminster Mini Mill has a small bar screwed with 2 4 mm cap

      It turned out that it was a blank covering the place where some
      suppliers fit a safety chip guard.
      I thought it would be a good anchor for a Z Axis positive stop cum
      depth gauge?
      I have now completed this addition and have a very effective depth stop.
      The bar has cap screws top and bottom to act as a handle and retention.
      The depth bar is secured by a 8 mm grub screw with a brass protective
      I'm quite pleased with the result and it looks the part.
