I'm trying to work out if an ML7 qctp will fit my new Perfecto, the topslide of which looks like this
The raised square section is 2 1/4" square but that platform on which the tool rests is only just over 3/8" below the lathe centre line. Can somebody with an ML7 compare these measurements or tell me what theirs are. Any other sensible suggestions welcomed - I really miss the qctp on my little chinese jobby.
Thanks John, I can see I'm going to have to get hold of one and experiment, I reckon I could safely mill 1/8" off that land but any more might seriously weaken the bolt hole - can't see me finding spares too easily either
Thanks John, hadn't thought of that - Ive got a c1 so the qctp mounts on the cross slide so is relatively tall, assumed the others were similar. I'll check next week, on hols this week, Lake district, country cottage, log fires, no engineering and banned off the pc so I'm not really here ok
Hey it's not my fault the place has a wireles broadband connection is it!
Andy, withdrawal symptoms after 2 days - I must be bad.
