Tool Rest Base?

Robert W. Henderson
>I'm using an old craftsman lathe. The tailstock and tool rest base both are held on by a bolt and nut. I can live with using a wrench to move the tailstock, but I'd like a cam lock for the tool rest base. The lathe has a 1-3/4" gap between the ways and the center is 4-1/2" above the ways. Does anybody know of something that would work?
