The ol' Ohio #2 is makin chips!
10 minutes before midnight MST! Just got done making the first chips. Been a looong day. All kind of problems. Some kind of strange bolts for the drive lugs, prolly a "Special" thread. Then I didn't have the right size key stock for the arbour. Took awhile to figure the X feed but it does work now. Got a ton of runnout in the home made arbour...about .020. Funny...something just clicked. The ol' lathe we have came from the same part of the country. It has 20 thou runnout. what are the chances this arbour was made on this lathe?
Milled a chunk of cast aluminum cuz I didn't have the right key. All my gear repairs run quiet, my home made U-joint runs true...all in all an ok deal.
Those VFD's sure howl when you plug them in huh? Pretty cool rig though.
I have tools I don't even know I own...
