There is a 24-stop indexing facility, with a spring-loaded indent pin to hold the spindle into position. The spindle thread is M33 x 3.5, allowing many accessories to be fitted. It has a 2MT for centres.

Cam locks secure both the tailstock and tool rest holder, and both are easy to move along the bed.
