An improvement in the design of stop blocks keeps the aluminum strap below the lathe bed from spinning while tightening in place.
- The plastic insert is cut to fit between the ways of the lathe bed.
- The lower aluminum 1/4 x 3/4 inch strap slides into the plastic insert.
- A lock nut in the bottom of the plastic insert holds the 1/4 inch threaded rod in place.
