  • Veeblefetzer

    http://www.alltronics.biz/cgi-bin/ca...025&type=store

    I look at this thing and I think, "Shaper attachment for lathe". Is it just me?

    Evan, how is that pneumatic gadget coming along anyway?

    I had to cut a keyway for a part needed on my CNC lathe conversion. I used the tried and true method of manually racking the cross slide in and out. It was painful!

    A decent and inexpensive shaper attachment for a lathe would be extremely valuable, especially if powered, even by electricity.

    Best,

    BW

    Wouldn't you know, I'm about 2/3 the way through making a fershlugginer potrezebie lathe shaper attachment using some Thomson bearings I got from eBay. A veeblefetzer would have gotten me through the project much faster.

        That must wait until I am finished with the mill, or at least have it operating. I will build it as it will be a fun project.

          I have thought about trying to make an adapter for a Bridgeport type mill similar to the one used on the Versamill. Like the 'versa shaper' attachment. anyone ever tried going that route to make keyway slots?
