1946 Popular Science Annual Part 2

So here are 3 more projects from the 1946 PS annual for the hobby machinist. These are more advanced projects, but must tooling for threading and small turning and milling work in the lathe. the solid sanding table and faceplate make for fast  finishing of flat surfaces.

First is a nice threading dial indicator.





The second project is a very useful draw-in chuck and spring collet set.







A nice plan for a heavy sanding disk and table, including pattern instructions. Iron would be nice but cast in heavy section aluminum would also be great.
