Lathe: Carriage Stop

Decided to make a carriage stop for the lathe. Even though I have the DRO, it's nice to just move the carriage until it stops instead of to a number. It was just made from aluminum, and the screw to tighten it was moved to the bottom so it wouldn't interfere with the ways protectors I have installed. Currently you need an allen key to tighten/loosen it, and I probably won't change that since I don't see myself using it all that much.
