New from Flute Master
Stop Block Enhancement
Flute Master has just released an enhancement to their stop blocks. The purpose of this new product is to overcome the necessity of holding the bottom aluminum bar in place while tightening the thumb screw.
The improvement is a plastic insert you cut to the width between the lathe ways, and fastened to the bottom bar. The bottom bar passes through an opening in the plastic insert and is held in place with a lock nut.
The plastic bar prevents the bottom bar from rotating as the stop block is put in place. The plastic bar is 2 3/8 inches long to fit the largest lathes, and should be shortened to fit a smaller lathe.
The difference in this stop block and the original is the blue insert shown in the photo. To convert your present stop blocks, insert the lower 3/4" x 1/4" aluminum bar through the insert and thread the all-thread bolt into the lock nut on the bottom. Use your same top 3/4" x 1/4" aluminum bar and thumb screw.
Tip: Cut the blue insert to fit snugly between the ways of your lathe bed. You may want to cut the length of the lower aluminum bar to fit between the brackets that fasten to the ways of the lathe bed.
Inserts can also be used on index wheel pin holders, and Spiral Master idler bases.
This improvement is not yet available on their web site. They are making a special offer at this time at 1/2 the expected list price.
To get your early 1/2 -price stop block enhancement, which includes a pair of inserts and lock nuts, send an e-mail order to email@example.com.
The cost is $5.00 per pair of inserts and lock nuts.
