Re: Bearing issue?

You could put an indicator on the carriage and the compound, to be able to watch for movement, it could help eliminate some areas of concern.

Re: Patio's projects

LOL oops! Thanks for the heads up on the bad link. It is kind of a neat video though. I tried to link this one, so people could see where I had installed a new base onto the Steady rest. http://www.chaski.org/homemachinist/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=89632&start=456 About midway down the page, is the prope...

Re: Patio's projects

Did some painting this weekend, so I painted the Steady Rest, that I rebuilt to fit the Cazeneuve lathe. I used a little JB Weld to mold the bottom plate to the upper steady. You can see that here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INcWJYFvSkQ This is not a show job, more of a scuff and paint. It look...

Re: Duplomatic T50 tracer attachment, refurbishment

I did some painting this weekend, and the centers for the template holder, became part of the project.
Here they are in new paint.

Re: Panhead rebuild project...

Still working on the Panhead. Went to pick up the cylinder, and found that a fin had gotten knocked off. I gave the old cylinder to the shop owner, and he used a fin from it, to weld onto the just bored cylinder. He then took an extra .0005" out of the bore, to take care of any changes that happened...

Re: 4-way toolpost build

Your spacing may work well with bits for turning, but what about facing and boring bits, that will face the other direction?

Re: Patio's projects

A while back, I bought a Hemingway, Mini Rotary Broach kit. It is capable of broaching an 8mm hex. The kit arrived, with the box split opened and material missing. I can say, the customer service at Hemingway is outstanding! They sent out the missing material, right away. I started to make the parts...

Re: Patio's projects

Liveaboard, yeh, your not crazy either. ;) Here are a couple of screws I made for the stops on the tracer. I started with a 8mm class 10.9 grade bolt. It was not a fully threaded bolt. I cut the head off, spun it around in the collet, picked up the existing threads and cut the threads just longer th...

Re: Resurrecting an old #2 Cincinnati cutter grinder

I got a chance to go see Harold this weekend. His cutter grinder looks better in real life than the pictures. Here are a couple more, that I took while I was there.

Re: SolidWorks vs. Fusion360

I have used both, but I am not an expert in anything cad. Some of the models I have made are in some of my posts. I also was an EAA member because of the Solidworks deal they had. I think Solidworks is easier to use, but it is not the full suite of features, that the paid seat has. I use Fusion beca...
