[There’s pics of my shop, lift, etc going back a few years. A couple months ago I added a 48’x16’ lean to off one side.

Yes, it’s now full of Kubota implements, the SxS, ladders, lots of large bulky stuff I want to keep out of the weather, under cover but doesn’t have to be inside.

That's a parts cleaner.
Yup, brain malfunction, I meant PARTS washer. Sigh. Getting old. :)
i like that old heavy iron, and I guess steampunk too.
I know a woman who just about lives steampunk, only in her case, she calls it steampink.

Nice addition. For those of you weren't lucky enough to go to the Kubota meet a few years ago, bearskinner has a very nice place.

While making some parts for another project, I realized I didn't have a 5C collet stop long (deep?) enough for a set of (5) 10" long matching parts. I could measure them individually, touch off and cut them each separately, but I realized there was an easy-to-make alternative collet stop.
Went to the stash and found a piece of 3/4" hot roll barstock of suitable length, and a stub remnant of black poly-acetal plastic.
Cleaned the bar up, and bored the plastic for a press fit on the hot roll bar. Then I turned the plastic (using the bar as a mandrel) for a slip fit for the through hole in the lathe headstock. Then I used one of my headstock spiders (for long barstock support) to capture the outboard end of the hot roll bar. Simple matter to indicate it in and clamp it, and I can adjust it for different length parts if need be.
The plastic supports the inboard end of the stop, and the spider supports the outboard end.
