The mistake in the angle plate was the mis-matched step. The tapped holes were planned on and make for handy clamping.
I didn't put my name on a lot of the tools I made or on ANY of my precision tools.
I figured I worked with an honest bunch and didn't need to tarnish my work with my name. I was mostly right. In 30 years on the job I only lost a 9/16 wrench and some allen wrenches. Of course, I had a policy that the job was not finished until all of my tools were cleaned up and put away. The clamps got left at the end of an overtime job that went into overtime.
Nice work on the slotter. I'm guessing you also have an indexing plate on the other end of the lathe spindle.
How did you put the black oxide/blue bath on the dark colored parts?
I have a few things that I made that never got blue bathed and have thought about setting something up at home.
Like this next one.
Thats a bunch of special tools. Did you make them or buy them? One of my brothers is a diesel mechanic. I will have to show this thread to him and see if he recognizes any of them. I especially like the puller that pivots to get through the hole.
Thanks for the kind words. More to come.
