Follow Up on Milling Attachment for the Lathe
I did get the 2nd hand vertical milling attachment mounted on my Sieg C3 mini lathe. Added a carriage lock using a 1/4-20 Allen bolt in a tapped hole on the carriage far side.... and a cut off .223 varmint bullet. Hey it worked.
Tightened up all the gibs and did a little milling, was ok... but that cr@ppy vise was a source of curse words.
I used my handy dandy 7x5 saw to cut off the jaws and then used my milling attachment to true up the remaining plate. Plan is to mount a 2.5 inch screwless vise on that plate. Hopefully it will be better.
Sooner or later we will be in a condo or townhouse with no space, but no mowing and snow shoveling so we can spend our winters in Florida and summers traveling.
I am hoping to have a spare bedroom to turn into a shop. As my toys need to fit in the garage. Ask me about my RZR.
