Last night I made a carriage stop for my lathe (see pictures in the images section). Basically, it’s a clamp that attaches to the bed of the lathe, and prevents the carriage (the part with the tool on it) from moving further than you want. It’s useful if you want to make a bunch of cuts that all stop at the same place, creating a shoulder on the workpiece.

My friend Catherine’s singing backup in a band in New York City. If you’re in the city tonight, check out their gig at the Elbow Room. While I’ve never heard the lead singer, Cat’s pretty amazing. And lemme know how it goes, since I can’t make it…
