A setscrew holds it in position on farm accounting software programs the stepper end.I've included a shot of it along with my 1937 Rolleicord Ib, one of my many classic cameras.It may sound arrogant, but I think I'm getting there As I start on the leadscrew conversion, it probably should be noted that the stepper motor is already in place.#2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 The QC is 3/4 scale from an original set on my Drummond "M" type they are manufactured by KRF Omni-Post they work very well, and I had their permission, The Sensitive Knurling tool.It's a heavy duty stop block.It's earmarked as a motor upgrade for my 10" shaper, when I finally finish that project.Those work great, too. .Some years ago I built the Camtronics 2A controller and converted my Sherline mill to CNC.
