Using wood lathe for plastic etc.
Hi, new here. Looks like a nice site.
I have occasion to need to make some parts from Delrin, aluminum or brass & need some advise about accessories for my lathe. I have an older Delta Midi Lathe & want some sort of x-y table or cross slide vise used on milling machines to attach where the tool rest fits. This would allow me to turn some uniform dimensioned parts. The result would give me the functionality that a metal lathe tool carriage has. Please excuse my terminology, as I am just best guessing here. I know that some turners use something similar for precision work & am hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.
I think that things should work the way I want them to.
