These South Bend EVS lathes are supplied with an adjustable feed rod clutch & stop collar on the feed rod. This is a great safety feature when working close to the chuck. Set the stop collar so the saddle & tool post are positioned at a safe distance from the chuck & tighten the lock screw. Adjust the feed rod clutch to a low setting. If the carriage comes into contact with the collar, the clutch slips, saving your machine from a serious crash.
