My Lathe

After thinking about it for quite a while I finally took the plunge and bought a lathe, I've always liked making things, usually it's with a soldering iron and some electronic components but now I'd like to try my hand at turning metal.
Anyway here are some of my experiences and discoveries, I hope someone finds them useful.

Auto feed rethink

Having used the lathe a few times lately I thought I'd revisit the mod I'd done to stop the autofeed, although it worked, the position that it stopped at was a little unpredictable.
What it needed was a spring tensioned lever that snapped fully off when it hit the stop.
Here's the concept I've come up with, not dimensionally accurate but a starter for ten.
