NOW FREE SHIPPING!! (Domestic USA only)
This new tool from Alisam Engineering, makes centering your lathe tool to your lathes axis a quick and easy task! Ideally for those jobs where you need to switch to a different tool while in the middle of a turning, but even when you just want to set up your tool(s) before a job. There are many other ways of accomplishing this but we and our many machinist friends believe this is the simplest, fastest, coolest way!
The idea was taken from the “old timers” trick of using a machinist’s rule captured between the stock and tool tip and adjusting the tool height until the rule was straight up and down. This method worked great but you had to keep moving over to the tailstock end to sight over the bed to visualize how straight the rule was or at least strain to look over your compound, cock your neck and sight the rule.
The novel idea of placing an accurate bubble level on the end of the rule, and using the same, time tested, “old timers” trick, allows the user to easily see when the tool tip is centered on the lathe’s axis. You can make fine adjustments and watch as the bubble tells you when the tool is on center. No more straining your neck or running over to the tailstock to peer over your bed!
Also can be used to align tailstock on your lathe's axis!
Can even be used to get your stock close to centered in the chuck by placing the gage in the center of one side of the rule and aligning rule with axis of lathe on stock, then rotating chuck checking every 90 degrees or so. Use on your stock on the milling machine too!Wood turners may find this setup useful too!
Fast, easy, accurate and CHEAP to boot! We will even include a brand new, stainless steel, 6-inch machinist’s pocket rule FREE, until our supply runs out! The face of the pocket rule has 1/64 inch graduations on one edge and mm’s on the other edge. The back of the rule has metric equivalents. A Starrett rule like this is $16.50, same quality!
