Segment Stop

A Segment Stop is used to control the range of rotational motion on the rose engine lathe, especially when using the dome chuck or the straightline chuck (and possibly the pencil chuck). NOTE: this is a feature that should only be used on a rose engine lathe where the motion is controlled by a hand crank.

In this video, David Lindow describes how one is setup and used on the Lindow-White Rose Engine Lathe.
