I do have a box marked Someplace Special and when I am careful to put things in that particular box, they seem to remain there. If I put the stuff in any other someplace special it's gone. I may or may not see it again. I've discovered that what was logical once is rarely the same the next time.

That seems in accord with my experiences, too. Socks, tools, wallets & keys. If I can ever learn to control, it will make me rich! It would be great to be able to put stuff in the place when I don't need it, and bring it back out when I do, instead of the way it seems to work now. :)

Webb,

With the tray facing forward on the tube, the screw holes are at 0 degrees, or at the back of the spud.

From the bottom edge of the spud rear, the first hole center is 0.250 and the second is 1.000, not much room

on the lower hole, I only have about 0.125 space from the hole to the edge, you might use .300 to be safe.

My socket head cap screws may not be original and they may have been little square head screws, but I used

1/4-20, 3/8 length. 3/16 drive size, they work well, and easier to adjust or remove.

Hi There,

Steve, I think I'm good.  I've got most of an old collet rack already.





The only things I was missing was the actual rack and the hook to hang the
draw tube.   I got a hook as well from Fred.  The shaft was quite a bit oversized
and I had to machine it down.







The tube is there and I think it is the correct length.  The diameter of the pipe is
.672"  which is basically 43/64".





The one thing I don't know is the location (or the size) of the set screws used to
lock the rack to the tube.

If you or someone could provide that info, that would be very helpful.

Thanks for the help so far!

The setscrew is on the rest side of the colletrack (stupid Phone autocorrection). Must be “rear side”.

Re: Missing reamer

I worked for a short time as a special education teacher, and I taught my students to talk themselves through difficult tasks they needed to remember. Subvocalize if possible, better out loud than not at all. It gives your brain more ways to process, which helps in many ways. 

I always told them that talking to yourself is only a problem if you get in an argument with yourself, and lose. ;)

SWMBO laughs at me, but it helps. And I've noticed she does it now, too. Though I never say anything about. If I still want live. :)
