These plans are for making a tooling conversion for your wood lathe to allow metal turning.

Any good wood-turning lathe may be used for metal turning, boring, milling and facing with the addition of this compound tool slide.  It is easily made from cold-rolled steel with a few common tools.  Mounting methods for common lathes are suggested in the plans. In any case, the mounting consists of a hold-down screw or stud, a key for alignment and a spacer block.  The block should be 1/2 inch thick for lathes having an 8 inch swing, 1 inch for a 9 inch swing, and proportionately larger for larger sizes.

Now you can get twice the work out of your old wood lathe with this easy to follow vintage plan.
