Hi all, I recently bought a cross slide for my Peerless lathe. It's a Boley Leinen. That means it doesn't rest flush with the lathe bed. I was reading up on some old threads that this type of slide needs a shoe. Couldn't find any example on the web so decided to make my own. (hand tools guys, sorry) I'm attaching a couple pics. Hope it's helpful for anyone with the same issue. Works great and stays nice and firm without having to tighten the nut too much. That could risk cracking the t-slot in the slide. Regards, Tokei PS. The half round brass bar rests against the front of the lathe bed. Does anybody have a solution for the damaged slide top T-slot ?
