Added brass tips to Lathe spider Bolts.
Chris I need to make one for the barrel work also , somehow I never get around to making it getting busy with everything else. looks great, really nice .
the milled flats for the nut was a nice touch I dont have a mill so mine will be without the nice flats
what size bolts are they
I don't remember the bolt size. Maybe 7/16? or metric....Its just what ever I had laying around with four nuts...lol I think Allen set screws would have word out good too. I don't think the lock nut is really necessary.

After seeing your post I bought a Tap & drill bit for 5/16 and some 5/16 bolts
Dead blow hammer I'll see if I can borrow one from a machine shop I had dealt with before , super nice guy. years ago let me use his lathe when I didn't even know him
