Base

This is a very simple item, photograph 2 centre,  Typical uses for this item are seen in photograph 12 and the photographs that follow.

 

Non dial indicator uses

There remains just one other item that can be made which opens up a wide range of other uses.

 

Clamps

These operate in the same way as a toolmaker's clamp but are shaped quite differently, a major feature being the small circular extension on the back end that enable them to be held by one half of a swivel joint or the table mount. These clamps can be very useful if used in isolation from the rest of the kit as mini toolmaker's clamps and with the other parts they can fill a multitude of other uses as some of the following photographs show.

 

Mini Instrument Makers Vice

Three items make up this assembly as seen in Photograph 13 in which a small item for a model farm wagon is being finally shaped.

 

Machine Guard

The guard suggested here is not of the type to prevent accidental access to the moving parts, though it may help, but just to protect the machine user from flying fragments of hot metal. This can particularly be a problem when machining square material on the lathe. A typical example on the milling machine is shown in Photograph 14 but a similar set up would be equally appropriate for use on the lathe.
