Good morning Jon, Norman, Guys,The paper has done the trick though, no movement with my finger now on the far end of the tool

Well using arm power alone to flick the chuck around, and the smallest of small cuts, I've got a finish that I think I'd be happy with, much less chatter, and a shiny finish, so tool isn't a problem. The paper has held firm too.

The 1cm of cut brass furthest from the chuck was just now, the 1cm closest to the chuck was last night before Snap, Crackle, and POP.
I know of at least one person that has made a "Norman Tool Post" for an Adept lathe. I supplied him with my drawings, though they are sized for the Myford and would have to be scaled and sizes re calculated to suit the Adept. Certainly it would be much better than messing about shimming to get the center height correct.
This is the drawing I made based on the original patent and other information derived from Myford and RR.
