Rivett 918s Second Tool Post

Created adjustable sub-plate for tool posts I picked up recently at the Cabin Fever Expo.  May need some additional modifications but has adequate travel to situate the form tools that I want to play with.  Simple plate with slots to allow adjustment over the work piece.  Don’t need much travel as the form tools will stay as close to the spindle as possible.

Tricky part of the second operation lathe is getting front and back tool post in sync.  Also, depending on some of the tools I use in the turret it require sthe cross slide to be pushed up pretty close to the spindle.  Hence they typically come with factory installed risers and corresponding tool post.
