Boxford CNC lathe (5)
The following pictures and video were supplied to me by Stuart Tankard.
They show the rarely used tailstock in use, supporting a relatively long thin workpiece.
The lathe is Stuart’s, and his control panel is fixed to the lathe cabinet. (Mine is an identical machine except that I use a wireless MPG).
The tailstock is the part coloured bright yellow, and it normally sits unused in a drawer, or hinged down and out of the way. As you can see however, it occasionally is useful.
