• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Picked this up in a box of lathe accessories. I'm at a loss as to what it is. Anyone recognize it? The spindle turns and is indexed to 4 different (unequal) positions. The knob on top moves the spindle up and down.

Most likely a fixture to position milling cutters for re-sharpening using a cutter grinder
