Live End Boring Bar and Lathe Swivel Plans


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.
