Slender Rod Turning Steady
« on: Jul 15 2020 09:51 »
I watched a chap on youtube turn down an 1/8" rod to 1mm using this turning tool.  I've since been onto the Model Engineer website to see if I could get hold of a drawing to make one.  The chap, Stewart Hart, is a moderator and I believe that a drawing is available.  The fly in the ointment is that I can't log in to the site even with a new password.  so, my question is, does anyone have a copy of the drawing?

I've just a had a look for you Jon.

I cannot find any plans as such on ME (I've looked through the downloads section) but there was a thread about a "Travelling Microsteady" by Rik Shaw you might find useful.

Stuart Hart does have a post on Model Engine Maker though - and describes how he made it there with some useful photos.

Ian
There are lots of pictures which will help but, it's a shame that he didn't upload the drawing.
I did look on Chronos' website but I couldn't find it there either.
Thanks for your help.

I have a feeling that I've seen plans for something very similar somewhere Jon (EIM or MEW maybe) but my article 'index' for them is not complete. I'll have a look later.
