I took some of you guys' advice....

Sir John, I milled the face of the ram, and it was a heavy bitch.


I doubled the 1/2" plate on the ram and sometimes It pays off sometimes I am down to .0015 TIR side to side and 0 on nod.

Thanx for looking, and any comments or Opinions are welcome.

My opinion is:

whew looks like alot of heavy lifting ... :D

I guess i missed the earlier thread, but what was the issue with it? How much was it off by?

My New Mill was the old thread, It was off by.005 to.007

Yea I got a suggestion Turkey. Next time you plan on taking some pictures lay off the caffeine and work on a couple of water glasses of Wild Wolf. The booze won't make the pictures any steadier but it will make the shakes more gentle and easier to look at! I did want to compliment you on the one that turned out. :D

Oh yea, on topic, nice job!

Looks great!! Is that a Cincinnati mill? I have seen that mod done on many K&T Horz mills but never a Cinci. That thing should be rock solid and have power feeds with rapids on all axis if thats the mill I think it is.

Don't be too hard on the boy John, we don't want to hurt is wittle feelings :D And don't forget this either, he still has that 50 cal on the premises somewhere. Anybody know if he ever worked in the post office?

Cinn. #1, 12 speeds on all axis, no R/T unless you call a top speed of 20 Rapid. ;)

Yoda, It's a crappy old Olympus camera with a 8 mb Smart Media card.
