    .
    Milling in the lathe with the work in a chuck is common. I think if the work is rotating it's turning, if the cutter is rotating it's milling (just to confuse though there's of course machines that do both at the same time). As an example, a normal set up for milling tin the lathe on a watchmakers or model engineers lathes is work held in a chuck, an indexing device on the lathe spindle and separate spindle with a milling cutter on a vertical slide.

    There is such a wide variety of what can be done on a lathe or other tool . The more time you spend thinking about it, the more you can do., Then you can get r done. I ran a big slitting saw in my lathe and held 3/4 thick steel blocks in my 4 way... that worked very well . I set up 3/4 steel plates on a faceplate and rotobroached 1.75 holes thru them, at a very rapid pace ... I have a theory.. I try to use the machine with the most hp and rigidity to do the job if possible.

    Answered my own question looking at some of his other videos. That guy is a world class engine builder and craftsman !

    Does anyone know the name of the music in that UV glue commercial video? Normally I hate music in videos, but I like that, and it's not competing with any speech, since the message appears in text.

    The thing I love about videos like that is, there is always some cool setup that I would never have thought of.

    Those are beautiful connecting rods. The connecting rods I make are much simpler, and since no one ever sees them, they are not pieces of art. I admire people who take the time to make such beautiful pieces, but the only important parts of a con rod to me are the bore diameters in each end, the center to center distance, and the width. I do use a fixture plate to mount the con-rod to for reducing the width except for an extended boss on each side of the big end.---Brian

    I don't think he owns a mill. I've only ever seen him make parts on a lathe. Get your scotch out and fire up this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IEGmD_aV3w

    Not milling. Just very educated turning. The work was always held and turned by the chuck or a fixture in the chuck. "Milling in the lathe" would entail holding the work in a vise or other fixturing on the tool post or with the aid of a vertical travel slide and turning the cutter with the headstock. No signs of that here. Just a well thought out sequence of operations.....


    And I have to wonder how much time was spent coming up with all the ideas and sequence.

    In particular I really like the use of a tapered arbor for the work holding in the last few operations.

    Thanks for posting the link Ringo. That was a very entertaining and educational video. I'm going to look up the rest of the vids on this build.
