Free Metalworking Project Plans: 8 x 14 Lathe Carriage Stop

Material: Steel
Units: (in)

Bill H.  submitted a set of plans for a very nice carriage stop he recently completed for his 8×14 lathe.


Here’s what Bill wrote about his project:

“Here is a simple heavy duty carriage stop for a 8×14 lathe sold by Lathe Master and Harbor Freight. There is extra metal to allow you to modify the design to hold indicators, stops, micrometers, etc.”

-Bill H.

Thanks for your submission Bill!
