Lathe Made from Diesel Pistons Project
Greetings any and all Ben Fleming Defenders;
I'm sorry this project is taking so long but Mr. Fleming's drawing are making my hair hurt. If there's anyone out there who's built or attempted to build this device, I have a bit of confusion regarding the cross slide wear pads (drawing #1, 11 and page #13). The pad is (I guess) 6.000" X 6.000" X .250" thk. The wear pad is .025" thk X 1.250" wide X 6.500" long.
Can anyone tell me if the wear pad is supposed to be .500" longer than the cross slide pad of did Mr. Fleming screw up?
