Thanks

>Thanks to all who posted regarding my question as to tapping the drawbar on a MT2 chuck.
Did it yesterday and it works perfectly!
Also a while back ,I think it was Garret who posted an article for making a tool rest.
I have been wanting a short rest for a while as the one that came with the Jet mini has been cumbersome at times.
I broke out the "CheaP"
H.F. wire feed welder yesterday ($100.00 on sale and it had no problem with a 5/8ths bolt that I cut with the $57.00 H.F. portaband) to make a neat tool rest.
(It don't have to be pretty,it just has to work)
I've also been wanting a 12"rest so it's off to Lowes for some 5/8th's stock.
Thanks again.
( the belt on the lathe is still screwed up and I haven't heard from JET)
