    Question tool rest nut

    I replaced the nut for the tail stock to a square one it works perfectly but it cost if I remember right $25 do anyone know of another place where I can get one for my tool rest. The round one has started to look like a cowboy hat & is getting difficult to move cause it's not fully disengaging from the ways. I lost the info when my last comp blew up. :-[

    Here is a pic of the one I was telling you about it works better then the original one.
    iT'S THREADED FOR THE bolt already just screw it in to the right depth & your done.

    Click pic 2 times for full size.
