It is obviously impossible to establish a method of mounting that will satisfy every
situation and I am therefore detailing the method I used for my Myford Series Seven,
no doubt a similar arrangement would suffice for any flat bed machine and be a basis
for other bed forms.
Many readers will be conversant with the problem of securing items to the lathe bed
where a clamping plate has to be held below the bed shears, the device being fitted
held in position above the bed and the fixing screws put in place and fastened.
This is certainly a case where a third hand would be an advantage, and even then
ending up with oily hands from the bed. I decided therefore that I would like a system
that would be much easier and if I may say this I feel that I have achieved that.
The assembly, Photograph 28, is a very simple item comprising just three parts all
of which need no comments regarding their manufacture.
