Build a Live End Boring Bar and Lathe Swivel Plans
These plans are for making a lathe attachment for a live end boring bar.
Work that's too big to
clamp to a face plate can
often be bored by clamping
to an angle attachment on
the cross-slide and using a tool
holding bar mounted in an end
mill arbor in the lathe's livecenter.
You can also bore two or
more holes in line and accurately
located from the micrometer ring
on the cross-slide, like reboring an outboard motor.
