Contact me if you have any question regarding the building of ther swing away.  Please remember to read all the directions and build it in the order I have shown.  You may also add a leg down to the floor with a wheel if your floor is concrete and you leave the tailstock on the swing away for long periods.  I do that and just blow the sawdust away from the wheel when I want to bring the tailstock back to the machine.

You may contact me at at


Please check out my other website for projects that I do on my rose engine and machine tools.  Pictures should be up by April 1st. 2016
