  • 5c milling head for my 1340 lathe You tube

    I just tested my 5c milling head for my 1340 lathe.I cut a face groove 3/16 wide x 1/2 deep in . a tough steel bolt head It worked perfect. It is powered by a hf variable buffer. I put a video of it on you tube. I put a variable frequency drive on my lathe and still run it thru the gear head,so I can slow the rpm of the lathe down to 2 rpm if needed. My next plan is to internal thread mill useing a full profile carbide insert on a 5/8 borring bar.

          Makes trepanning easy, well done, if you had a TOS lathe you can stick the spindle in neutral and still power feed ( bizarre but handy)

            Chains made out of peanut butter are few and far between.

                This is a no 35 roller chain. This chain and sprockets are available everywhere. Edwin Dirnbeck

                    Yes , a rubber cog belt would be smoother and quitter., but chains are allways the first choice when designing a new product. They are stronger .cheaper,thinner and more compact. The sprockets are available in many diameters and materials.The chain length can be adjusted in 1/2 inch increments.and you can buy them at the corner drug store. Edwin Dirnbeck
