the cross slide. The base casting (at left above) therefore has metal for a similar post, while the vise casting to right of it has a cored hole to be bored out for a recess. OPPOSITE TYPE of castings will fit a popu-lar 10" lathe, which has the dovetail post on top of the cross slide and aLathe Milling Attachment - Vintage Projects,together, T-slots and slide for this lathe milling attachment are made without costly machinery.
