  1. Not shown in the photo. The turret could carry a toolholder that included a vertical piece that had a horizontal tube (3″ to 4″ long) that engaged the horizontal bar shown in photo. Set up properly this steady took over some of guidance from the slideways and produced excellent results. When reconditioning I had the bar molybdenum sprayed and precision ground,the turret bores were honed too suit in some cases.
