Saddle Stop for the lathe, Harold Hall

Having worked for many years without a saddle stop for my lathe I then found how useful it was when I eventually made the very simple stop detailed for this project. I then asked myself just why I had not made one earlier.  I would therefore urge the viewer who does not own a saddle stop to consider making one as soon as is possible.

 

Whilst it is only a very simple design, Photograph 1, it will perform most functions that a saddle stop may be called upon to carry out, with the added benefit that it is easy and quick to make. Photograph 2 showing a typical application.

 

The Stop is for a Myford Series Seven but the dimensions could easily be changed for other flat bed machines and with the simple modification shown in Sk.1 it should also be easy to adapt the design for use on a vee bed machine.

 

See elsewhere on the site for details for how a saddle stop can be used.
